The Jjohns (pronounced ‘Johns’) are a four piece indie/rock band formed of brothers Mik and Dom Dunning, Ste Brannigan and Sam Burkett.
The band’s sound, laced with harmonies and electric acoustic melodies, is highly influenced by the Mersey-beat era and Liverpudlian bands such as The La’s, Cast, Gerry and the Pacemakers and The Beatles.
The Jjohns released a four-track EP, ‘Stone Across My Cave’, in November 2016, shortly followed by a music video for their single of the same name.
“The Jjohns always play a brilliant set, with their Merseybeat sound they have heavy influences from that of The La’s, The Beatles and Oasis, but they always put their own original twist on it.” – Getintothis
“The Jjohns are the band managing to keep the genre of Mersey Beat alive, and give it that air in the lungs it needs.” – The Pentatonic
“Together, the Jjohns are bringing the Liverpool sound to you wherever you are, the sound that reminds you more of the vintage vibe of The Beatles rather than the rowdy stigma the city is often lumped with.” – KettleMag
