about us

Janey and the Vagabonds was born out of a desire for the ultimate covers band experience.  We are a live four piece covers band specializing in private parties/functions and festivals. Our set list concentrates mainly on the iconic songs of the sixties and seventies.

We perform classic music from a bygone era, imagine Woodstock with a twist of sophistication.  Born out of The Ladder Factory Studio and Dacoit Studios the band has an earthy analogue/organic sound.  We play real instruments with no auto tune or trickery.

Christine (Janey) is a born again Stevie Nicks with a vocal sound and range to warm the cockles of your heart and give you a tingle deep down inside.  When not on the back of a horse, Christine has sung professionally for the last two years at some fantastic private venues and festivals around the country.

Peter George Rowe (Guitar/bass/keys) is a professional recording engineer, producer and songwriter from his own recording studio, The Ladder Factory.  With a wealth of experience and talent with even more charm and rugged good looks, he has recorded and produced for television including the BBC and Channel 4, The Sherman Brothers (Walt Disney) and Sony Music, as well as artists such as The Libertines, The Kills and Mikey Rowe (Oasis/Sheryl Crow).

Simon Law (Guitar/Vocals) is an experienced sound engineer and tour manager to some of the current top blues guitarists.  He has built and played guitars for three decades and is equally comfortable being onstage and behind it.  Similar to Peter, Simon has his own recording studio and has written for, recorded and produced albums for artists such as Matt Schofield, Sam Hare and Charlie Bath.

Dougie Mussard is without doubt one of the finest drummers in the south of England. He has been a professional drummer for over 20 years and is Swindon's drum teacher extraordinaire ! He has a huge style covering everything from classic rock and blues through to jazz and pop and has played with some of the most successful acts in Wiltshire including his own originals band Tin Spirts. His exuberant style and magnificent smile really drives the band on stage and his characterful presence help lift us to new highs on every gig...Dougie Mussard.. our 'Tour De Force'.

Lastly Charlie Rowe (drums) is the youngest of our fudgetastic rabble.  He is has played on many fantastic recording projects and worked with many bands including The Alfonz, of whom played Glastonbury, Lighterthief, The Dacoits, The Bob Bowles Blues Band, The Disco Pirates and Charlie Bath.  He is an incredible drummer and session artist whose talent is only over taken by his charm and considerable good looks…Damn those Rowes!!!
