New York (TADIAS) – Following their rocking NYC debut concert at S.O.B.’s earlier this month, Jano band is scheduled to take the stage on Wednesday, August 28th at Ginny’s Supper Club – an uptown venue located inside Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster Harlem.

In a review featured on the website Rock NYC, Jano’s well-received appearance at S.O.B.’s on Friday, August 16th, got two thumbs up from Brooklyn-based musician Tomas Doncker who wrote: “Jano lived up to the title of their debut release (produced by the legendary Bill Laswell): Ertale (The most continuously active/erupting volcano in Ethiopia, and one of the hottest spots on earth) when they almost literally set S.O.B.’S on fire with their unique blend of traditional Ethiopian melodies and bone shaking, ass kicking rock and roll.”

Jano is currently on their first American tour promoting the band’s new album and they are set to perform in Atlanta, Georgia (September 1st), Oakland, California (September 7th), as well as Las Vegas, Nevada (September 10th), and Los Angeles, California (September 14th).

As Tomas noted: “This potent fusion is the brainchild of former Ziggy Marley manager Addis Gessese who hand-picked each of the 10 members. The ensemble drips with talent. Guitarist Michael Hailu supplies the force with huge metal riffs and a detailed harmonic sense. The dual vocals of Debekulu Tafesse and Hailu Amerga (with exciting backing vocals and dancing by Haleluya T and Fifi) are in complete contrast with each other. Back and forth, one after another, creating a completely unexpected dynamic that never let’s up. Their stage show is in word…Relentless. Well, such are the gifts of youth, but that is not to say that JANO is without musicality. To the contrary, the band features spectacular musicianship (centered around the killer riffs of young Ethio-rock guitarist Michael Hailu) and powerful songwriting that transcends any genre or language barrier.”
