The Janzen Boys Live!
September 25, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
We are so happy to announce that The Janzen Boys will be performing at the Listening Room on September 25th!
This family trio from Winnipeg features 17-year-old Simon on bass, 13-year-old Mick on mandolin, and their dad, John, on guitar. These guys are no strangers to Lac du Bonnet, playing Fire & Water Music Festival several times, performing at the Lac du Bonnet Library and at a few private gigs.
With harmonies that are out of this world, The Janzen Boys will have you laughing, crying, and singing along as they perform classic country songs that we all know and love, and great catchy originals that will be delightfully stuck in your head for days.
If you are not already part of The Janzen Boy fan club, we know that you will be after you see them live. There is just no escaping the great musical talent and heartwarming interactions as John and his boys share their stories with the audience.
Things kicked off for The Janzen Boys when they were chosen for a finalist showcase in the University of Winnipeg’s Uniter Fiver contest for emerging artists. Soon performances on Facebook and Youtube became a focus and at this point, their videos have racked up over 50,000 views.
In the summer of 2015, the Boys wrote the story and music for a kids play that they performed in the Winnipeg Fringe Festival. This resulted in multiple sellouts, a 4-star review from the CBC, and a positive mention in The Winnipeg Free Press in an article entitled “Has the Fringe been Politically Neutered?”
Also in 2015, they sat down with local producer JP Laurendeau to create a 4 song EP called Roads. The EP features The Janzen Boys’ family harmonies along with the musical talents of Ariel Posen and Ryan Voth of The Bros. Landreth.
The band took their Blink’s Garden play on the road in 2016 and 2017 to the Edmonton, Toronto, and Winnipeg Fringe Festivals, where they performed to more sellout audiences. In addition to the Fringe Festivals, the band has kept busy on the festival circuit, performing at Festival du Voyageur, Dauphin CountryFest, The Fire and Water Festival in Lac du Bonnet, and The Trout Forest Music Festival.
After a successful showcase for the Manitoba Arts Network in Russell MB, the Boys booked a series of shows all over the province during the fall and winter of 2018/2019.
And some great news for all you Janzen Boys fans, they have announced that in September of 2019 they will back in the studio to record a full-length recording!
