Finn is a musical outfit from a near extinct walk of life, Heralded as the last of the travelling minstrels, They are a rhythm and blues band, who play the music of their generation and are still writing it, Finn are some of the last of their kind.

Three individuals plucked from a generation where being a musician had nothing to do with auto tune, reality TV shows or even choreographed dance moves. 30 years ago, when the band had a Commer van for the gear, with a crank handle to start it, Finn were touring. 20 years ago when MTV grabbed the music industry by the scruff of the neck and shook it, Finn were touring. And this year, (still in a van this time a Tarago), Finn are still on tour.
With their 8th album due to be released, Finn continues to deliver their trade to pubs and clubs in every town throughout Australia, large or small. They have performed at almost every major blues festival in Australia and are constantly touring the country. 10 years ago dragging a trailer and a Ford round the country Finn were touring.

“Dear Big Rock, I went to see Finn last week at Ruby’s in Rozelle and I am writing to tell you how good they are. I guess you know that already as they are available on your Big Rock web site. I first was aware of them after seeing them on Songwriters Across Australia. I then purchased one of their CD’s from your website. Last Sunday, after some research, I turned up at Ruby’s to see them; what a great show it was. I normally wouldn’t go to a pub to see a band as I find the screens and sporting punters obnoxious and rude but Ruby’s was a pleasant surprise. Jim Finn and his band were fantastic, with a blend of songs that we knew and some of the tunes from the recently purchased album. The night flew by; great band, great Muso’s. The audience were responsive and lively and one of the highlights was when Jim’s son, Tomi, jumped up with the band and sang a couple of his dads’ songs. I will be tuned in to Big Rock Radio waiting to hear more from this great band.”

FINN (JIM FINN, PAUL SURANY, MIKE BELLAMY) AT RUBY L'OTEL 19 APRIL 2015 WITH GUESTS ROSS WAREKER, JILL HARDY, CHRIS M MURPHY, ROSS WARD, DAN THE BARMAN, CHRIS TURNER. THE BEST NIGHT OF PUB ROCK I HAVE HEARD IN MY LIFE!!! James Finn, Once again thank you. That was the best single night of pub rock I have heard anywhere in my life. And I was thrilled to be part of it, thank you, so I will remember it with pride for a very long time. And thanks for your kind words. You were astonishing last night. The complexity, application, dexterity, subtlety and inventiveness of your drumming was way above anything I have heard in Oz. And I would say that even if our mate xxxx xxxxxx was in the room!! And you guys worked so hard with seamless segues and unfailing energy. So well done!!" Many thanks Chris, this was unsolicited by the by.”

“Hi Jim, like it lots....I featured it on Mojos the week before Xmas and still playing a track or 2 weekly. Jim's writing some interesting tunes and his voice seems to be getting more delta bluesy every album....great guitar work as usual from Paul.....I actually popped the disc into my CD player for a drive to a gig up in Kiama ( 2hours there and 2 back) and just kept it playing probably 4 or 5 times.kept me happy... Cheers Tony”
