This is local band Jet West's first full length album, hence the title Dropping In, which is simultaneously describes their entry into the music industry as well as their love for dropping in on the San Diego waves. For those music lovers looking for something a bit harder, they offer a balanced mix of reggae and hard rock.

On the September 11 anniversary of the WTC attacks, Jet West debuts their first album, Dropping In, with a release party at SoundWave. “The only venues that would give me a weekend date were 710 Beach Club, Winstons, and SoundWave,” according to singer-guitarist Chris Warner, “and that was the only date offered to us by any venue...it wasn’t planned. It’s crazy, but that’s what fate had in store for my band. I have quite a few friends that have called saying they can’t come to the show, purely based on the date alone. I respect that, for the lost ones and for the memory of the day itself. I always try to celebrate life.”

"Jet West is the epitome of a band heavily influenced by the more beautiful things in life, such as girls, surf and mellow tunes. Hailing from San Diego, this band delivers an upbeat, relaxed sound that is perfect for a day spent outdoors.Sunday and Mexico will take you straight to that laid-back vibe quicker than you can say “shaka.”

Bio

Hailing from sunny San Diego, Jet West launched their live music career in the fall of 2009 as an independent, Rock/Reggae band and hasn’t slowed down since. The band's varied musical style fuses traditional rock with elements of reggae and hard rock, a sound born from the beaches of LA and San Diego.

Jet West is lead vocalist/guitarist Scott Floquet, lead guitarist/vocalist Chris Warner, bassist/vocalist Deren Schneider, drummer, Derek Potter and trumpet/percussion, Jack Taylor. The group as a whole emits the laid back California vibe that demands a beer in the hand and a steady beating head.

In 2010, Jet West released their first full length album, “Dropping In” on their independent label, Hidden Reef Records, and a musical journey around the nation was spawned. Their debut album was nominated in the San Diego Music Awards for best new World Music Album 2011. Jet West was also nominated for BEST ROCK in the 2013 San Diego Music Awards.

Jet West has shared the stage with such big names as Slightly Stoopid, RX Bandits, Authority Zero, The Aggrolites, Tomorrows Bad Seeds and Seedless." Jet West is also an official associate member of NACA! college booking association.
