OMJ [Rock and/or Blues and/or Pop, 5 piece]
Slickly rehearsed gig of rock, more rock and pop, celebrating the super sounds of the twentieth century, from Sharp Dressed Man to Brown Sugar, seamless playing, with great vocalist Gerry Guildea catching the distinctive voice of all original 39 songs covered. Very enjoyable sounds from 3 guitar supremos and deadly drummer. A night full of dancing revelry, music devilry-all a cracking night at The Three Lions. Thanks to Adam and his fast busy staff at the Inn and OMJ-worth flying over from Dublin for this great night out.Pip, Sunday 31 October 2021
Great review, - thanks Pip. It was a blast !
'Slickly rehearsed'; 'Guitar supremos' and 'Deadly drummer' all resonated, made us blush, but are eloquant similies (or is that metaphors?).... but we appreciate the well thought out comments and time taken to provide a review.
It was a great night - and feels like the re-awakening from 'the recent Terribleness'....
Glad to be back and playing for appreciative crowds!.
Gerry and the Boys.
If you want a fun night out then go and see OMJ. We saw them in the White Lion, Bengeo a few weeks ago and we will definitely return on September 30th. Musically and vocally they are excellent and they got everyone up dancing. with covers from the 60s to present day. One of the band members actually came up to us at the end and thanked us for supporting them, but the pleasure was all ours. It's great to have such a talented local band playing in Hertford (see Lemonrock for fixtures) and we can't wait to see them again soon. Carol and TonyCarol, Thursday 16 September 2021
Hi Carol and Tony,
Thanks so much for this great review. Glad you enjoyed yourselves. Hope to see you at the next gig on 30th October at The White Lion or The Lord Haig on 6th November from 9 pm.
Fantastic evening, they never fail to deliver. Had the place jumping with an excellent mix of tunes. Well worth the 60 mile journey!! Something for everyone that made the beer flow all the more easily...Tuesday 12 March 2019
Glad to have an appreciative audience - we're glad you came along, and had a good time.
The Steamer always has good bands on and I was excited to see a new one this past weekend.
Well, all I can say is WOW!! Musically they were spot on all night, tight as tight can get. Great set list and a really engaging band. Any band that can do White Room, Happy Hour and Footloose in the same set. Do them well and smash it gets a massive round of applause from me.
Tremendous gig and I hope to see them again!

Many thanks for the comments Nigel.
OMJ takes pride in performing an eclectic set that appeals to as many as we can.
We're really glad you enjoyed the evening...we as a band always do have fun and love to see and hear feedback.
It was our first time at the Steamer, I'm sure we will be back.
We look forward to seeing you at many of our other gigs later this year.
OMJ are a good times band and Gerry really bangs it out on vocals. Lots of dancing and fun. And good unusual covers like the Cure etc..well worth a listen :)Monday 11 March 2019
Cheers for the review. Great to hear you enjoyed the gig. Hope you can catch us again soon.
