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/vocalist, 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. They were also nominated for Best Rock in the 2013 San Diego Music Awards.
Jet West is in the studio recording their next full length album with Lew Richards at 17th Street Recording Studios in Costa Mesa, CA. They are extremely excited to bring this to fruition and they expect to release their album in the summer of 2014.
Jet West has shared the stage with such big names as Slightly Stoopid, RX Bandits, Authority Zero, The Aggrolites, Tomorrows Bad Seeds, Arden Park Roots, Through the Roots and Seedless. Jet West is also a proud member of NACA.
