Press Release:

Pajama Club’s Neil and Sharon Finn, Sean Donnelly (SJD) and Alana Skyring have their overnights packed and are ready to hit the road this September in celebration of Pajama Club’s debut self-titled album release, out September 12.

What began as a private after-dinner racket to fill an empty nest, soon evolved into a fully-fledged and excitingly fresh act who have already made waves with their first singles ‘From A Friend To A Friend’ and ‘Tell Me What You Want’. Playing Wellington’s San Francisco Bath House on September 22, and The Kings Arms Tavern in Auckland on September 24, head along to witness first hand what really goes on in the Finn’s house after dark.

Joined by former Grates drummer Alana Skyring in their live line-up, and no longer restricted to the late night confines of Neil and Sharon’s music room, Pajama Club have been busy touring and playing to full rooms in the UK and Australia in recent months. Here’s what the live critics have been saying:

“For a baby band whose first album isn't out until September, Pajama Club are agreeably loose while never looking like falling apart. Having a dozen quality songs don't hurt either.”  - The Sydney Morning Herald

“If this performance was anything to go by, Finn will have put his name to two brilliant albums within the space of eighteen months.” - Fasterlouder.com.au

“Finn’s usually smooth and soothing voice takes on a raw quality that shows off his own musical diversity in a way unlike we have really seen from him before.” - Newsunlimited.com.au

“We’re happy to predict that the Pajama Club are going to make a lot of people very happy when they burst out onto the world stage” - themusic.com.au
