The Red Jets

The Red Jets


We are The Red Jets an independent, alternative rock trio born and raised in Ottawa Canada. We are a young band; Amanda(23) Dan(20) & Renato(20); that have a number of years of experience as performers for some of Ottawa, Ontario’s largest stages, opening for bands suchas: Trooper and April Wine.


The Red Jets are a young Ottawa pop/rock trio that has been electrifying audiences all over the city for the last 4 years. Originally, siblings Renato and Amanda began by rocking the 2004 Super Ex nightly as a “White-Stripesque” duo. Then the addition of bassist Dan Costanzo, injected a thumping rumble to a repertoire of new and classic rock covers from bands like The Killers, The Dandy Warhols and The Beatles to name a few. Although still teenagers, their extremely tight vocal harmonies, synchronized rhythms and superb musical skill made them very popular at a number of Ottawa’s festival and fundraiser venues. Soon after this teen cover band began writing their own material. The Red Jets found themselves opening for some of Canada’s legendary bands, such as Trooper, The Northern Pikes and April Wine . Their original material secured them a spot as round finalists and money winners in the 2007 edition of the Live 88.5 Big Money Shot; a remarkable achievement for such a young band..
Renato, 20, Dan, 20, and Amanda, 23, have released their own 6 song EP as independents of the Ottawa music scene, which has already received airplay nationally on CBC Radio 1 and locally on Live 885. The group has already began writing and performing new material to be featured on their next album.


Don't You Love It?

Written By: Renato Giamberardino (The Red Jets)

Who said that nice girls finish last?
Wake up ‘cause true love travels fast
Why cut a line right through the crowd?
‘Cause what she wants she wants right now

Don’t You Love it

The more we live the more we burn
With each mistake you never learn
She tells exactly what you need
She’s not someone or so it seems

Don’t you love it
Don’t you love it

Her sweet pollution in your veins, Don’t deny it
It tastes so good , yet so insane, You know you want it
Selling you the spinning wheel,
No need to worry
Shiny bracelets, diamond heels

Don’t you love it
Don’t you love it
