Feeling a bit camera shy


Formed in the Spring of 2004, JGET began making music with no intention of taking it outside the rehearsal room. "I had pretty much had it with trying to be in a band," exclaims JGET guitarist and vocalist Greg Lockwood. "I went through the process so many times - getting a band started only to be disappointed when it fell apart."

The same was true for guitarist Josh Mikrut and drummer Todd Hoek. The three found they enjoyed the same styles of music and had been through a lot of the same experiences. The first few jam sessions proved rewarding and they started talking about the possibility of making it more than just a jam night. To be a complete band, however, they needed a bass player.

"I was also hesitant to try the band thing again," notes bassist/vocalist Ethan Day. "When Josh invited me to sit in at their next rehearsal, I thought I would oblige him, but I didn't expect the attitudes and musicianship that I found."

With a complete lineup by the end of May 2004, the band continued writing songs and trying to sort out their musical direction.

The Summer of 2004 proved to be a time of transition for the band. "We started getting the feeling that what we were doing musically, and how we were relating to each other on a personal level, was unique and worth continuing and improving upon," Greg relates. "By the end of the summer we had a consistent practice schedule and we began making goals for the band."

With a constantly growing repertoire of contagious melodies and monstrous grooves, JGET looks at 2005 as a proving ground. "If what we, and those around us are experiencing is a testament to the unique nature of our music and our sound, this summer will be an unforgettable one." states Ethan. "We're so excited about the future," adds Todd. "We have no idea what it's going to look like, but we're at the point now where we just have to be patient and let it happen."

Drawing from diverse influences including: David Bowie, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Foo Fighters, the Rolling Stones, U2, Wilson Pickett and countless other bands, JGET fuses funk, soul and rock into music and lyrics that are introspective and heart-felt.
