Upcoming Shows

Sullivan Janszen Band is taking time off due to the global pandemic.


We really miss playing music and sharing the experience with all you great people. We aren't sure when we'll play again, but hope to in 2021.


We want to thank you for all your support and sharing of music with us for the past 30 years.


We'll get through this together. Stay safe and healthy. And while you wait, enjoy this Spotify playlist of almost 600 songs that we've played over the years (if you remember others, let us know - we're sure we've missed some!).





"Sullivan Janszen Band plays the best music and provides the best live entertainment of any band in Greater Cincinnati. The crowd loves them and the variety of music they play is unmatched by any other local cover band. Our festival attendance is always higher when S&J Band is playing and with good reason: THEY ROCK!"

About SJB

Sullivan Janszen Band started performing as a duo in the early 90's. Performing throughout the Midwest region, Jay Janszen and Brian Sullivan became the house band at the Blue Note (every Wednesday night) and Millions (every Saturday night). Eventually adding Kurt Rosnell on drums, Jeff Vance on bass and Greg Williams on keys, the band expanded to fill out their sound for their full band performances.

"I went off the recommendation of a colleague in the Cincinnati area and he couldn’t have led me in a better direction.  From your willingness to adapt to the timing issues I encountered, to the song selections you guys used to keep in the theme of the day - it was more than I could have asked for! Your professionalism during the whole event was refreshing.  There is no doubt that if I need a band in Cincinnati or other Midwest markets, the Sullivan Janszen Band will be heading up the stage for me."
