Fresh from an east coast tour and a gig at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, JaFFer rides the wave as they celebrate the release of their first single Give me a little lovin, which was recorded at Rocking Horse with producer Anthony Lycenko and mastered in London at Metropolis.

JaFFer is the love child of front man and funky bass player, Luke ‘Fergo’ Ferguson, who along with drummer Jacob Mann have played and/or recorded with such artists as Pete Murray, Busby Marou, Marshall & The Fro, Dallas Frasca, Jasmine Rae, the Fumes and Lisa Hunt.

This hot rhythm section is joined by two of the area’s most exciting young guitarists and entertainers Harry Nichols and Mark Hoare (both from the band The Downstairs Mix-up).

They play the Golan in Lismore tonight from 9.30pm.
