The JetBeats are a Rock & Roll trio from Grand Rapids.
The group features Guitarist/Vocalist Morgan May
Moallemian (formerly of The Deans), Drummer Justin
“FatBody” Rutkauskas (formerly of Northern Skies), and
Bassist David Jimenez (formerly of The Boss Mustangs).
The groups’ mission is to bring back the excitement from
the high energy live shows of the early 60’s Beat Music
era, as well as British Invasion classics and a healthy dose
of American rockabilly and rhythm & blues.
Performing songs spanning a period from roughly 1957 to
1965, The JetBeats will belt out high octane, early Rock
& Roll hits from The Beatles, The Kinks, The Who, The
Rolling Stones, The Searchers, The Swinging Blue Jeans,
Gerry & The Pacemakers, Eddie Cochran, Little Richard,
Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Larry Williams,
and a host of other legendary performers from the most
exciting period in rock history.
The JetBeats also perform their own raucous
compositions – a sound that pays homage to that big beat
sound. The JetBeats sound utilizes driving guitars, a solid
backbeat, and rousing vocals that harken to a bygone era.
See what the excitement is all about. Hear the
head-shaking vibe. Feel THE BEAT!
