Wexford band JMA will take to the stage in Wexford Arts Centre on Friday, December 11 at 8.30pm.

The band will pay tribute to Bob Dylan and Neil Young's music by taking the songs of the masters and adding their own unique edge to the mix. Their sound is based around excellent vocals with tight harmonies coupled with superb guitar work and driving rhythms.

Wexford's JMA began as a three piece band with James Meyler, Mick Egan and Anne Meyler covering mainly Bob Dylan and Neil Young's music, releasing their first album in 2003 called 'Numbers'. Since then they have produced a second album with full band, 'Same God, Different Devil' which includes Mick O'Brien on Bass and Keith Devereux on drums and with Mick Egan on the electric guitar, it is a much bigger sound this time around.
