Imagine the melodic noise of Wilco combined with the rich harmonies of The Mamas and The Papas--that's JANTURAN. Their original material has been described as "edgy-grunge-folk filled with infectious hooks and compelling lyrics". Their sets include unexpected cover songs like 'Get it On (Bang a Gong)' by T-Rex and Roger Miller's 'King of the Road' all interpreted in JANTURAN's brand of sound. If you're a fan of great harmonies and instantly likable songs with an edge, then JANTURAN is right for your event.
This duo was so full sounding--just like a band. Singing was terrific and they played for three hours! Never heard so much tight harmonies live. We really appreciated having them at our daughter's sweet sixteen. She loves alternative music and these guys were perfect. Edgy but not inappropriate in any way and very professional.
Response from janturan:
Thanks Giselle! We also had a blast playing at Camille's party. The energy of the entire party was extraordinary. We were so happy to have inspired the kids to get up and dance. They were having so much fun and so were we! Happy Birthday Camille!

What to Expect
Spot-on vocal performances, well rehearsed, tight on instruments, lots of energy, dressed like mod rockers, great communicators, good with all ages, always on time, quick set-up and breakdown, own sound system (optional). Known for their professionalism and passionate performances, JANTURAN has been named 'a band to watch' by music critic Michael Greenblatt of the Aquarian Weekly. Shows range from 1-4 hours.
JANTURAN ‘s musical alchemy (Ramona Jan and Andre Turan) has been described as 'edgy
folksy rock' by veteran music reviewer Michael Greenblatt of the Aquarian Weekly. Singer/songwriter Ramona Jan was a founding member of the 80's bands Comateens, Venus Fly Trap, Dizzy and the Romilars and Nursery School (Epic Records). As a singer/instrumentalist, she worked with Brian Eno and Sparks. She also worked with the Ramones, Lou Reed, Talking Heads and more. Aside from being the lead vocalist/co-songwriter in JANTURAN, Andre Turan is also the lead singer/songwriter for Sunskull, a techno-metal band that cyber records between the UK and the US. Andre, with his four-octave range, has performed and worked with guitarist Zoltan Bathory of Five Finger Death Punch. Their most recent CD, LEGENDARY, is a tribute to the 1970's NYC recording scene. Besides containing songs by artists that Ramona Jan worked with such as Eno, Talking Heads, Ramones, etc., the CD is accompanied by extensive liner notes pertaining to the original sessions.
