UK TOUR 2004
It may be uncool for a promoter
such as myself to comment on his own gig, but the JA gig at the Boom
Boom Club in Sutton, was really exceptional.
jan said in his intro that he was "priveledged to be here".
Well as far as the audience and myself are concerned, the feeling was
Rarely has a gig been so uplifting, inspirational, and fun! The material
from the new album was cleverly segued with some favourite oldies, and
above all, it was the clever use of dynamics, superb playing allied
with Jan's humourous personaity that made this an exceptional gig.
Quite simply one of the highlights of the year, climaxed by a closing
extended funky band workout. Simply great.
I have been to the Sutton (Boom Boom Club) Stables (Milton Keynes) and
I am off to Robin 2 for tonites gig. I am amazed just how good Jan's
gigs are. He is a real pro and it seems that he and the rest of the
boys in the band are really loving this tour and are 'well up for it'!!
No two gigs are ever the same, they keep it fresh by changing the tunes/running
order around - Magic.
I hope, Jan, you will keep coming here we really do love the music!!
(Especially Streetwalker !!)
