Janky & 1969s plays Lucerne behind Robert Kimbrough

Janky and his band The 1969s backed Robert Kimbrough Sr on his performance at Lucerne Blues Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland. This event was a high-class adventure for musicians and blues fans alike. Janky feels truly blessed to play abroad with such great musicians and such a blues icon as Robert Kimbrough Sr.
