Not So Young – A Tribute to Neil Young

Not So Young - A Tribute to Neil Young

On Saturday 14th March we welcome Not So Young for their first visit to Joe Joe Jims with their tribute to Neil Young who aim to “capture a unique and spirited live sound covering all eras, from singer songwriter, to country, blues, rock, grunge and psychedelia“.

The Birmingham 5-piece band have been together since 2006 and perform a well-crafted show, showcasing the full breadth of Neil Young’s musical output, from the 1960s to the present-day, and features Dave Johnson (vocals, guitar, harmonica & violin), Gareth Austin (vocals & guitar), Graham Jones (vocals & guitar), Mike Burton (bass) and Toby Wilson (drums).

So if you wish to Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World, Don’t Let it Bring You Down and come along for what promises to be a great night of music from one of the world’s most prolific and enduring icons (there was a pun on Southern Man and South Birmingham but I thought that might be over-egging the pudding!).
