A Tiring Return to The Boatmans Rest
August 17th 2012

Once again a great night at this venue, however, I was rather worse for wear! Just four hour previous to playing the gig I touched down at Birmingham Airport after returning from a business trip to Papua New Guinea.

By the time we started the evening, I'd been awake for 48 hours!.....thanks to everyone who said I looked awful!!! :0)





A Great Summer Afternoon Gig -
Leamington Spa

July 22nd 2012

We took a last minute gig, courtesy of Jazzfish Promotions, to play on the patio of The Glasshouse in Jephson Gardens in Leamington Spa.

For us, it was one of our most memorable shows....perfect weather, perfect venue and perfect audience!

Can you help?

If you were at Jephson Gardens to see us play and you took any photos or video, could you let us have some copies for our website?

It was such a memorable show for us but we never got the chance on the day to get any photos taken

If you can help, please email them to info@thejents.com and we'll give credit you on our website.

We'll keep you updated if another booking comes in for this venue....this is a great outdoor gig!!

A Belated Happy New Year
February 19th 2012

Apologies for no updates, we took the month of January off and got a bit lazy when it came to the website!!! Anyway...HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

The first gig of the year should have been at The Birds in Pye Green (Cannock), unfortunately the Midlands was hit by snow and, althou Allan and Steve made it to the venue, Stuart's heavy laden car could not cope with the very 'hilly' area around Hednesford and Cannock and sadly had to turn around and go home.

We then played at Darlaston Sports & Social Club on February 11th, we had a good night and were made very welcome by Ent Sec Charlie.


A Great Night at Walsall Cricket Club..
December 29th 2011

A great night on Tuesday (29th) at Walsall Cricket Club!!!!

I have played at this venue every Christmas for the last 10 years or so in my previous band, NV....and hopefully this will be regular venue for The Jents.

A BIG thanks to our friends, Bish, Billy, Nathan, Bekki, Tina, Jude, Ali, Dave, Caren, Annie.......and many many more who came along. It was also nice to see large number of the club's members who also came along for the night......maybe we'll see them again soon!!

If you're looking for a night out this Friday (30th) we are playing at the Boatmans Rest in Walsall Wood....8:30pm start.

New date for December
December 2nd 2011

On Tuesday December 27th we are Walsall Cricket Club, WE1 3BE. This 'Christmas gig' will be our 3rd year in a row....and long may it continue!!!

New Date....New venue!
September 27th 2011

The Jents work with several Entertainment Agencies, and one of them, Mark Mortimer of Jazzfish Promotions has secured a date for us at Shard End Social in Birmingham.

The gig on Saturday October 8th will be our first at this venue and we are genuinely looking forward to it as we seem to have had nothing but cancellations over the last few weeks!....Hope to see you there!



Shard End Social, Birmingham, B43 7RN


What's with all these cancellations???
August 31st 2011

We've had 3 cancellations in as many weeks, The Journeys End, August 27th, The Saxon, September 9th and The Boatman's Rest, October 8th. This has been down to venues double-booking other artistes......apologies to those of you who were planning on coming!!

Good news is though, our gig at The Feathers in Lichfield this coming Saturday (September 3rd) is ON!!! It really is the best venue in Lichfield and is ALWAYS a great night.....it would be great to see you there!

Also, Stuart (Guitar/Vocals) is taking part in the Great North Run on September 18th and he's raising money for the British Heart Foundation. He has chosen the British Heart Foundation as his very good friend, Criag Tye, died suddenly last year from a heart related illness......so he's running in memory of his good friend.

Great Night at The Journey's End!
May 29th 2011

A new venue for us...The Journey's End in Clay Lane, Yardley. We weren't sure how the night would go as our gig clashed with the Champion's League Final between Manchester Utd and Barcelona. What can we say.....what a great crowd and an all round good night. We will be confirming another date at the Journey's End soon!...Thanks to everyone....Great Night!


Clay Lane, Yardley, Birmingham, B26 1EH

Looking forward to Saturday (May 14th)
May 10th 2011

This coming Saturday we are playing one our favourite venues, which also happens to be the best live music venue in Lichfield...The Feathers!

It's a great pub run by Mike and Tracey and they have turned the venue in to a great place to play...they've also managed to attract some of the biggest known acts on the circuit, such as Trevor Burton, Dave Sharp (The Alarm) and not forgetting Mike's own band Rebel Creek!

Why not come down on Saturday?

The Feathers, 118 Beacon Street, Lichfield, WS13 7BA.
