Jetboy Announce New Drummer Doug Hovan


November 14, 2008

Jetboy wishes to announce the recent addition of accomplished drummer Doug Hovan. Doug Hovan will be replacing Jeff Moscone, who will be lending his youthful enthusiasm to a host of new projects.

“It’s never easy losing an accomplished musician like Jeff. That being said, everyone in the band feels really fortunate that a drummer the caliber of Doug Hovan was not only available, but excited at the opportunity to join the Jetboy family” said Rhythm Guitar player and co-founding member Billy Rowe.

“Doug has a wide ranging skill set”, said Fernie Rod (lead guitar, co-founding member). “Not many people realize that Doug is not only a drummer, but also a talented songwriter and lyricist”.

Among Doug’s accomplishments in the area of songwriting include the tune Rosegarden, which appeared in the film The Water Dance, starring Wesley Snipes.

Doug Hovan brings with him a lengthy pedigree that includes a stint in Sway, as well as playing with musicians such as Danny West (Vain), Ron Yokum (Seahags) and John Torres (Laaz Rocket).

Jetboy recently completed a successful summer tour that saw the band play Rocklahoma, Rock The Bayou and The South Texas Rock Fest. Jetboy is playing isolated club dates in California, while preparing to enter the studio to record. Jetboy is also putting the finishing touches on an ambitious tour currently slated to begin in Summer 2009.

Jetboy will be performing Friday, November 14, at The Blue Cafe in Huntington Beach, California, as well as Saturday, November 15 at the Regent Theatre in Los Angeles.
