The Red Jets


We are The Red Jets an independent, alternative rock trio born and raised in Ottawa Canada. As a young band; Amanda 22 (drums, vocals), Dan 19 (Bass) and Renato 19 (guitar, vocals); we have a number of years of experience as performers, opening for acts suchas: Northern Pikes, Trooper & April Wine.


The Red Jets are a young Ottawa pop/rock trio that has been electrifying audiences all over the city for the last 3 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 last years Live 88.5 Big Money Shot; a remarkable achievement for such a young band.

Renato, 19, Dan, 19, and Amanda, 22, are have released their own 6 song EP as independents of the Ottawa music scene, which has already received airplay nationally on CBC Radio 1 . The group has already began writing and performing new material to be featured on their next album.
