Jetstream, Sturgis, SD

Remember you heard it here first - I'm thinking these kids just might hit it big. Jetstream is three young men from Southern California and they made the long road trip to Sturgis, South Dakota for the Rock'n'Rev Festival on August 10, 2010.

They look like the Jonas Brothers, but their playing is deeply rooted in classic rock. Jetstream is (left to right) 16-year-old Garrett Zeile on lead vocals and guitar, 16-year-old Ben Zelico on drums, and 14-year-old Kevin Grimmett on bass and vocals.

What really impressed me about their performance was Zeile's guitar solo on the Lynryd Skynyrd classic "Free Bird." This kid can play!

Good stuff guys, I'll be watching your progress.

It is good to know that others feel the same way about these young men! We have been watching them grow up in front of our eyes for about three years now here in So. Cal. We went to a Toad The Wet Sprocket concert and came out of it Jetstream fans and have been hooked ever since. Needless to say...I feel the same way that you do...that they will hit it big!

They are well beyond their years in skills and have been recognized by many other professionals as phenomenally talented. Let it be known that JetStream has a bright future!

The only thing I'm disappointed about is that Jetstream made the long trip to Sturgis and did not have a very large audience to play to. Evidently the combination of another up-and-comer Orianthi with veterans Bob Dylan and Kid Rock at the other big concert venue that night was a much bigger draw than Creed, Skillet, Theft and Jetstream.
