- Introduce us to your band!
We are JJ Friends, the band was born in December 2017, in a very unusual way. Since Jose
Jarque composed 11 songs that he wanted to record on a record, for this he resorted to the
friends of all his life, which are also musicians and he starts to shape the themes, once the
album was recorded, we started to take the project seriously. All the components come from a long career in rock music, more than 30 years on stage, all of them doing what we are passionate about, rock, hard rock and heavy metal.
- How did you guys start out?
As we indicated, the band was born after presenting the album in one of the most emblematic halls of Barcelona- Spain, (Razzmatazz) there we realized that we should continue and shape a band with great force.
- Describe your band’s sound.
Raw, hard, powerful, old and at the same time modern.
- What influences your craft?
The passion we put into all the compositions, the sound and the desire to offer a good show.
- What makes your band different? Why should people listen to you?
We do not believe that we are different, we are a band that enjoys what we do and that we
make the public contagious of our enjoyment, with what they enjoy with our music.
- When introducing people to your music, what song should I show them first? What is your quintessential track?
I show you first? What is your track par excellence? For us all the songs on the album are hymns, but if we had to choose one, maybe it would be “Dime”.
- What has been the biggest struggle in your career so far?
Be many years without decay, are many years in which you put great enthusiasm in your work and you see how hard it is rock in our country, maybe it is the country that supports the least rock and yet we are always ahead giving our best version.
- What has been the biggest highlight in your career so far?
Although it sounds ironic, years ago we prepared a show in a small room and that day only 2
people were public, in spite of it we did the show as if there were 10,000 people, we had such a good time that the room we promoted and the next week in the room we had full of public, we must always offer the best of you, for 10000 as for one person, those two people paid their ticket and the show was very emotional.
- How bright is the future of your band – what are the plans?
At the moment we are very happy, we have many offers forecasts and within a month we will start working on the second album with very powerful themes and some in English.
- When all is said and done, how would you like to be remembered?
Remembered? As a band that enjoys and makes its audience enjoy, to be a reference in terms of fun on stage, that the public enjoy so much that they want us to repeat the show.
