Jenny Don't and The Spurs
Jenny Don’t And The Spurs have maintained a relentless schedule of recording and touring ever since their inception a decade ago. Now, after almost 500 live shows in a dozen countries, and with three albums and a slew of singles to their name, they have just about warmed up.
Founded by Jenny Don’t (vocals/rhythm guitar, ex-Don’t) and Kelly Halliburton (bass, ex-Pierced Arrows, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S.), who had been playing in the aforementioned acoustic and punk bands and felt the need to switch gears up/down, it wasn’t long before they were rehearsing a set of seminal standards by the likes of Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Ernest Tubb and Hank Williams Sr., as well as a sprinkling of original songs. Their friend Sam Henry (ex-Wipers, The Rats, Napalm Beach) soon joined them on drums, and this remained the core trio for almost five years, augmented by guest guitarists.
Christopher March eventually joined the group as full-time guitarist in 2017, bringing with him a wealth of talent and touring experience from years spent plying the Northwest country, rockabilly and honky-tonk circuits and this quartet recorded and toured until Sam passed away after a brief battle with cancer soon after ‘Fire On The Ridge’ had been completed. With sticksman Bill Weeks now behind the kit, The Spurs remain a force to be reckoned with, the intensity and energy of their live set a must-see for any gig goer who enjoys spirited garage-infused country music played with sincerity and raw conviction.

FIRE ON THE RIDGE
New album LP, CD, digital out now (Fluff & Gravy Records)
“Jenny Don’t has an absolutely heart-melting, authentic and appealing voice and when you hear her deliver the delicious ‘Be The Only One’, you’ll swoon and no doubt fall in love”
VIVE LE ROCK
“Will no doubt provide a suitable soundtrack to the only worthwhile option as we hurtle headlong towards oblivion: a bottle, a hardwood floor and a willing partner”
“Draws heavily on influences of 50s and 60s rock ‘n roll and beat and blends them with western influenced swing. It’s an exciting combination and many of the tracks are downright thrilling 4/5”
“It’s all toe-tappin’, finger-clickin’ fun, and the band is in the UK in April, so y’all hoedown and see ‘em if you can 4/5”
