The JetBeats fulfill a longtime dream of venturing out to Liverpool to play some select dates. Two highlights are Lathom Hall (Where The Beatles played 12 times in 1960-61) on May 18th and the legendary Cavern Club on May 20th. Barry Sutton (former lead guitarist of The La's) will join us on stage at the Cavern!
A warm JetBeats welcome to our new lead guitarist AJ Dunning and new drummer DJ McCoy! Anybody in the GR area is already probably familiar with AJ, former lead guitarist for area mega group The Verve Pipe. AJ brings the JetBeats sound to whole new level with guitar wizardry! DJ is veteran old school skinsman that was the long time drummer for Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys. Looking forward to rocking the new year! See ya at the gig.
The JetBeats have finished up their new EP, titled Mach'64. 6 scorching tunes of 60's sonic bliss! Available at all major digital music shops right now. The group will also have CDs that you can purchase at all upcoming shows.
Stay tuned for an announcement of a record release party to come this Fall.
If you buy the record, please let us know what you think!
The JetBeats will undergo some changes to our lineup moving forward for 2016. Our lead guitarist, Pete Dunning, has decided to leave the band. You can still catch him when he plays with his long-time band, White Rabbit.
The JetBeats have tapped the young and talented Ben Erhart to join the band moving forward. Ben is a young cat, but he really digs the old rockers and will fit in quite nicely.
Also, come and see the last show with the JetBeats for our old pal and bass player extraordinaire Dave Jimenez at the Park Theatre on June 10th. The group will open an epic night of rock&roll, featuring The Concussions and legendary rockers The Blasters!
Stay tuned to lineup changes moving forward. But don't worry, The JetBeats will continue rock the early 60's into the future.
The JetBeats would like to announce that in May of 2016, the group will take a trip across the pond to play a 2 night stint at the historic Cavern Club in Liverpool, UK. The group will participate in the Liverpool International Pop Overthrow festival, held at The Cavern Club. Details to come in early 2016. While in Liverpool, the band is trying to also book a show at the historic Casbah Coffee Club - former Beatle's drummer Pete Best's home on Haymans Green, where the Beatles played many shows in the early years. Other possible shows could be booked at the historic Lathom Hall in Liverpool and in Manchester. If you're planning a European holiday next May, you may want to come out and visit us in Liverpool!
Also, The JetBeats are included in Volume18 of the International Pop Overthrow compilation, with their rousing track "How You Got The Girl". Get your hands on it, it's ace. Lots of great tracks from the best unsigned bands in the world.
The JetBeats will also participate in the IPO event in Detroit in April of 2016. The group is looking forward to a very exciting year ahead!
