Salt Lake City Witches' Ball

Juana Ghani will be playing at the Salt Lake City Witches' Ball at Bar Deluxe (666 S. State Street) this Saturday, OCTOBER 27th.  This will be THE party to attend this Hallowe'en.  Performing with Juana Ghani will be the amazing, beautiful, and bewitching Lunar Collective, Davina Tribal Collective, Thia, and Jennifer Long-Pratt.  Other performers for the night include Banjara, Eevil Kim, Triple Moon Tribe, Oriental Dansi, Stephanie Buranek, DIA, Beaute Derangee and many, many more!  Also playing at the Witches' Ball will be instrumental metal band Cornered by Zombies.  AND (yes, it gets even better!) this is a costume party!  The theme of the night is "Black Lace and White Magic" and there will be a HUGE grand prize presented to the "Baddest Witch."  So get your witchily bad self all dressed up and come party with us 'til the ghosts come home!

This will be our last show for awhile.  After such an amazing year, we're going to catch our breath for a couple months and work on some new material, new members, and a whole new experience.  It's all going to be so amazing!

Looking forward to seeing Saturday!

Newsletter – Autumn 2012

Hello, Everybody!

Before I get into things, I want to say a big thank you to everybody who has signed up for our newsletter from,, our website at and in person at our shows.  You are all so beautiful!  Thank you all so much!  And welcome to the family!

Now on to the good stuff!  It’s been an amazingly busy and wonderful summer for Juana Ghani.  We’ve played some fabulous events and venues and met some incredible people.  And we released our first full-length CD “Shall We Live Forever” in July.  We are so touched and feel so much love from all the wonderful people who have bought the CD and had such incredibly nice things to say about it.  

Along with the release of this CD, Brian published a book – “Kasojeni Bay” – at the same time.  


You can pick up both at any of our shows or buy them on the web from a multitude of online retailers including our own Juana Ghani store –
