JR Band – Historie

history of the jr bandMore

We write down the year 2000, the new century has started and the JR BAND is running faster, bigger and better. An average of 120 gigs per year, well received through Europe, what am I saying....over the Globe ! The  JR BAND is very close to being a cult, with loyal fans, that will follow them where ever they go. Of course, they have done supports for : ALLMAN BROS., ZZ TOP, SLASH, SIMPLE MINDS, WHITESNAKE, etc., and worked together on projects with : CHUCK BERRY, NAZARETH, the ANIMALS , B.B.KING and the horn section of TOWER OF POWER.
