FJM formed in 1998 when three musicians thought it would be a lark to play gigs dressed in monkey suits. With a bizarre mix of techno and rap, early FJM performed their gigs incognito, behind their masks. However, it was near impossible to see their instruments and also incredibly hot. So they ditched the suits, got another guitarist and a drummer, and started playing lots of parties.
Ralph, Andy, Rob and Jem have been playing together since the early noughties but when Sharon joined on vocals and saxophone, the band really began to shine!
Since then, they have played hundreds of gigs at parties, weddings, festivals and . . . wakes!
They have a simple formula: play the songs you would like to hear at a house party.
FJM got so many bookings that they decided to use the money to put on a festival or two. Five Pyramid Parties, two Godzilla’s, three Cwm Fests and over twenty years later, they are still going strong. A veritable ‘party in a box’.
