JetSet Rejects: noun a. Those who refuse to recognize, or give affection to, the rich and
fashionable social set and all those members therein which live by means of hedonistic and
self indulgent pleasure.
With that being established, "JetSet Rejects" is much more than a name, rather more of an
amalgamation of musical styles and backgrounds which has been almost unheard of up
until the current.
Mick Scott, vocalist for JSR is individualistic if he is anything. Never holding to the script
vocally, he brings contrast to what the music is portraying with a style that is hard pressed
for definition. In all he does, he asserts himself to work
against the grain and is much more concerned with creating something fresh onto itself then
to be accepted as just another Rock and Roll singer.
David Portnoy could be defined as a "guitar player's" guitar player”, melding styles of music
from every generation and making it all his own . He brings to JetSet Rejects an unapologetic
sense of individuality that is paramount to the overall appeal of the band.
Henry Higgs, the drummer of JetSet Rejects could for all intensive purposes be the prime
factor behind the cool and quirky uniqueness of this band. He brings to the table an arsenal
of rhythmic styles including everything from Reggae to Death Metal and does so with such
energy and precision. His ability to think far, far outside the box allows the structure
of each JSR song to shed the parameters of it's initial direction then trashes the map and
heading to a whole new environment. He doesn't play drums... he writes drums songs.
Jason Stalk, the founding member of JSR is the primary songwriter,lyricist and guitarist
pulling from his life, stories of social observation which are relevant to most. He is able to
structure his music in such a fashion where you are stepping into a world appearing familiar
to your own and yet the music is unique onto itself creating a dichotomy of
lyric and rhythm. These are the elements in which make up a musical scenario that people
will remember for a long time.
These are new days. These are new ways. These are
