Man, it’s fun to write for this group, and fun to release new music!
Adam and I have been co-writing songs lately, and one in particular that is on the new album, “Baby Girl’s Life,” is being received wildly well. That’s such a satisfying feeling, and then even more fun to perform. Door County audiences gave warmer receptions than we could’ve dreamed of at our Door County CD Release concert August 11th in Sturgeon Bay, with an audience 300-strong! Similarly loving crowds demanded encores and danced the night away at three other Door County shows this past weekend. 4 hits in 3 days takes a toll on you, but it’s all worth it.
Looking forward, our Mpls. CD Release is this weekend, and we couldn’t be more pumped! With American Idol postponing the release of this project for a year, it’s finally getting out to you!!! Saturday, August 20th, at Hell’s Kitchen, 6-9p, is when we will excitedly present you with this new project. We love performing in Hell, and will have two special guest appearing with us- Twin Cities’ own Cory Grossman on cello, and Matt Ecklund, emcee.
Further, we’ve gotten a lot of press lately! 106.9 FM the Lodge (Door County, WI) dedicated their entire “Lodge Local” slot to our group, complete with co-hosting the show and spinning 5 tunes from the new album. Thanks, Lodge crew!

And Adam and I will be on Jazz 88 (88.5 fm KBEM Twin Cities) this Thursday night 8/18 at 7pm CST.
Also! Saturday morning, 8/20, the day of the CD Release at Hell’s Kitchen, I’ll be in studio with Larry Englund “Rhythm and Grooves” KFAI 90.3 and 106.7 FM Twin Cities. Thanks in advance, Larry!
And so we say, THANK YOU Twin Cities and Door County, for being oh-so-good to us in the JNG family!
We’re incredibly excited, literally bursting at the seams, to bring you this fresh music, and hope you can join us at the CD Release concert, and other shows coming up. Check in with us often at: http://www.janajazz.com
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! Here’s to fresh art! Keep it real, JNG peeps.
Much Love, Jana Banana
