Join us at QPAC’s Green Jam to hear The Long Johns’ twang of the banjo, the rumble of the sousaphone and the ring of the spittoon, the creak of the door, the crow of the rooster, the stomping of floorboards and the hammering of the chain gang.
The four piece possé come together to play spooky country with that old timey swing, peppered with the spiciest of flavours to deliver songs of hope, loss and hauntings.
The band hit the trails with the stagecoaches blazing delivering the debut single “Clubfootin’” which found them on the road to Woodford Folk Festival to excite and delight crowds many times over. Not a bad start for a band who played their third show on a packed Woodford stage! Buzzers were buzzing!
Featuring a line-up of banjos, sousaphone, national guitar and the pots and pans, The Long Johns prepare a tincture of dark country and barnyard bangers.
Like the cure-all tonics of old, The Long Johns are good for what ails you.
