MR JANNY

Bass guitar

MR JANNY Ján is the man and a fan of Bananas… Also a cracking bass guitar player, which is handy for KHB!

Influenced by Pink Floyd and Queen, Ján started playing drums at 11 years old – but when he picked up a guitar at 14… that was that! Ján grew up in a musical family in Slovakia, before moving to NI in 2004. He played his first Norn Iron gig, in the Ulster Hall, with multicultural band Voyager.

BIO Ján played with popular NI wedding band “The Bizz” in 2006 and in 2007 he joined The Afresh Band – performing Zimbabwean traditional music fused with Irish Traditional music, along with musicians from NI, Zimbabwe, Poland, Slovakia. He was also a member of the Kreative Konnectionz – a Theatre Production Company.
After local rock band Ajenda called time in 2015 – Ján joined the KHB Krew and the rest… is history!

QUOTE . “Feeling so wonderful to be a proud member of KHB, I’m very happy that I found them”

FUN FACT: KHB drummer Peťo is Ján’s brother!

EXTRA STUFF: As a young fella in Slovakia, Ján played in a number of bands including Arcon, Bohéma and Energy as well as a number of wedding bands. In 2005, Ján began playing in The Motion Project (Multicultural Music Project) as well as joining Beyond Skin – an organization which uses Music, Arts & Media to assist in the building and development of cultural relations.
