A real coup for Joe Joe Jims! We are proud to present hit songwriter and former ELO guitarist Dave Scott-Morgan live with MOrganisation.

Primer - Celtic, Alternative Rock

On the afternoon of Sunday 14th July we are pleased to announce the first visit to Joe Joe Jims for Dudley’s [Primer].

The female fronted rock group from the West Midlands formed in 2007 and has seen several member and sound changes before settling on their distinctive, inimitable style; a mix of Celtic inspired vocals mingle with a calling violin, intense drums and an resonating bass to drive an original, unique sound with a difference that is not to be missed.

Currently working in the studio on new material, following a tweak to their sound and line-up, the band are looking forward to hitting the road again and we are looking forward to welcoming them to Joe Joe Jims.
