“It’s been a pretty eventful year for us to say the least,” says Jamie Hendry, frontman of Joburg-based Southern Rock outfit Jasper Dan. “Looking back we had our first originals only set on Thursday 5 November 2015 at Rumours Lounge. Our next gig we opened for Wonderboom and Crash Car Burn at the same venue on 28 November so it seems only fitting to be launching our album, A Southern Fling a year later at the place where it all started. We’ve had an awesome year filled with ups and downs and arguably everything a career in music could hand you. The launch of A Southern Fling finishes of the year in the best way we could have imagined.”
The album contains a good mix of Southern Rock influences entrenched in all those Jasper Dan songs which have become favourites with their steady following. The album is produced by revered South African musician and producer Mark Beling who describes the recording of the album as his most enjoyable studio experience to date.
The album is being launched on 12 November at a “one night only” launch party. Be sure you get out to the launch which promises to be a party to remember. Jasper Dan has secured a great line up, and anyone who has been to one of their gigs before knows these are nights not to be missed! Come Saturday night, It’s Jasper Dan time once again.
