Internationally acclaimed South African band Just Jinjer will rock The Barnyard Theatre at Gateway again, with one show only on June 29.

Just Jinjer are one of the biggest rock band exports in South African history, having sold more than a-quarter-of-a-million albums to date. Their power and alluring appeal is fueled by a well-honed and heartfelt musicality, a commitment to communication on a genuine emotional and cerebral level — music that touches the heart, body, mind and soul — and a dedication to their musical mission that is virtually unstoppable.

The band is made up of Ard Matthews on vocals and guitar, Denholm Harding on bass guitar, and Brent Harris on drums, this trio having been part of the solid foundation of the band since its inception.

Just Jinjer have been back in their home country of South Africa since 2010, after being based in Los Angeles for eight years, and are currently in the process of recording their ninth studio album. The first single off the new album, Bright Light, was released to critical acclaim in the Spring of 2014 and has enjoyed high rotation-play on radio, as well as recently taking the Number 1 spot on the Algoa FM Top 30 Chart.

Audiences can expect to hear previews of their new material along with a mix of their old favourites such as Shallow Waters, Father and Farther, Like You Madly, their cover version of Sugarman, Paradise In Summertime, Here’s To You, For All We Know, Time Of Your Life and What He Means To Me.

Tickets R150 pp and seating will be as for normal shows, with no standing room. For bookings and enquiries, phone 031 566 3045 or visit
