Special info: CONCERTS & EVENTS in the times of the Corona Crisis
DEAR MUSIC & CONCERT FANS

We are glad that, after the last months, during which most cultural events had to be cancelled or postponed as a result of the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council in order to restrict the spreading of the coronavirus, live concerts are slowly coming back into our lives.

However, despite the official decision to allow events with above 1’000 visitors again as of October 2020, artists and concert organisers still have to deal with constantly changing and regionally differing measures – ranging from new limitations in the canton of Zurich, via registering-apps to mandatory mask-wearing or distancing rules in other places.

Therefore, we advise you to always check the official information of each event-location directly to inform yourself about the most accurate status and regulation of the concert you want to attend. Additionally, we would like to encourage every music-fan to use the Swiss Covid App, as we strongly believe that the more people act responsibly and observe the health-recommendations, the sooner we will succeed as a community to make attending social events secure again.

In the meantime, we are trying to keep you updated as good as possible about any changes in the corresponding artist & show information pages as well as via our social media channels.

Stay healthy, follow the recommended hygiene procedures and don’t lose your love for music!
Thank you, your team at Just Because.

Pop Jon and Roy

Jon and Roy

Pop

It’s easy to fall for the effortless, everyman charm of Jon Middleton and Roy Vizer. Seasoned musicians and long time friends, their brand of indie-folk is pretty much a genre in itself; evoking fog-shrouded mountains and evergreen treetops, sun-dappled beaches and the crackle of a campfire. With over 30 million streams worldwide, it’s clear many others have been captivated by Jon and Roy and the stories they tell.


Jon and Roy's 8th album "Here" epitomizes their journey to date; an assured collection of 9 brand new songs that touch upon themes of love, presence, hardship and joy. Recorded in the quiet forests of Vancouver Island over the summer and fall of 2018, "Here" is quintessential Jon and Roy. “Half of the songs were written this past year,” Middleton continues, “but the other half are 2, or even three years old, and have needed time to simmer to get where they needed to be.”


Jon and Roy’s live shows are well known for Middleton’s stirring performances coupled with Vizer’s instinctive rhythm and impeccable time keeping. In recent tours, the inclusion of a horn section have lifted these performances to even greater heights; it’s not uncommon to see packed venues united together in rousing, joy-filled refrains. And it will be more of these sell out crowds that Jon and Roy return to in March 2019 for their 5th European tour in 3 years. With new audiences and bigger venues, this is shaping up to be their most successful run of European dates yet.


Of course, these west coast troubadours are no stranger to big crowds and life on the road. They've toured with Xavier Rudd, the Cat Empire, Trevor Hall, and Toots and the Maytals, and have played festivals across Canada, the USA, Europe and the UK. The band shines in front of a live audience, but it's not the only avenue in which Jon and Roy have garnered new fans. Canny song placements in TV shows on HBO, NBC, MTV and OLN, combined with long running in TV ad campaigns for Lululemon, Volkswagen and Scotiabank, have further cemented their reputation.
