In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the recording of their debut album Feel the Shake, the 4 original members of JETBOY (Mickey Finn, Billy
Rowe, Fernie Rod and Ron Tostenson) will be reuniting for one night only, June 1, 2012 at the legendary Whisky-a-Go-Go in Los Angeles, California.
This lineup will include bass player Charles Norman who joined the band after the departure of Sam Yaffa in 1990. “This is as close to an original lineup the band has done since then” say’s Mickey Finn.
This will also be the 25 year mark that their original bass player Todd Crew passed away. “We as his friends thought that it would be a fitting tribute to not only celebrate the anniversary of ‘Feel the Shake’, but also our friend Todd Crew…a life taken way too soon” say’s JETBOY.
JETBOY in recent years has continued to play major festivals in the United States such as Rocklahoma, Rock on the Range, The M3 Festival and Rock the Bayou with a rejuvenated lineup. “When the Whisky called us with the idea, we never thought we could make it happen, but everyone was up for it” say’s Fernie Rod. “It’s just flat out exciting to think that after all this time, the original members can get back in the saddle for one more ride and help Los Angeles to Feel the Shake!”

There has been a small earthquake (5.4) in Illinois today, and an aftershock (4.5). People all over the midwest have been a little shook up today.
For those of you that felt the tremors this morning, I dedicate the following live video, Jetboy’s Feel the Shake! Enjoy!!
