Happy New Year to all. SlowJin is a much stronger band now that Chris Ongers has joined Mark on guitar. Due to illness and hospital visits, we won't start gigging this year until - first public gig is at The Wheatsheaf Cider and Beer festival on May 26th - see you there.

Some more sad news.....

Tom has decided he is leaving too. He's about to get married and buy a house, so won't have the time needed to play in a busy band. We all wish him well in his new married life :)

Some sad news.....

Some very sad news for SlowJin - Billy is moving on to pastures new at the end of July. We all wish him and his family the very best for their new life in Cornwall. I know we'll visit Cornwall for some music making with Billy sometime in the future. So if you've enjoyed SlowJin gigs, there are two more opportunities to hear us with Billy, June 27th at The Old Neighbourhood Inn, Chalford, and Sunday July 19th at Upton Social club, as part of the Upton Blues Festival. More details can be found on our website Keep an eye open for our future plans. SlowJin will reappear with a new lineup, hopefully very soon. Hope to see you all at our gigs. Cheers from all at SlowJin

Lots of great gigs coming up in 2013. We have a new lineup which has worked out really well. And on June 29th, Keith Thompson is returning for a guest appearance at the Rose in Paganhill. This is a fund raising event for Help for Heroes - should be a great event, hope to see you there.
