History

The JETS story begins in 1980 - a young man with the idea of a band playing good rock n and roll set out to shake up West Australia's live music scene. That, they did. In 1979 Peter Dean or “Deany “as everyone calls him, left the band he was in as lead vocalist and bass player and began to plan a trip around Australia in the coaster camper bus he and his girlfriend, Janie (later became his wife) had bought and then come back to Perth and start a band playing good hard rock in the vein of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, AC/DC etc. A hefty tax bill soon put a stop to that idea, so Deany began working for Sounds HQ doing sound for The Gunners, a band from Sydney.Deany and Janie were looking after his parents shop while they were on holidays and one day (in early 1980) Fenton Wilde walked into the shop by chance. Deany had met Fenton before while touring over the east coast and had always admired his guitar playing.

They got talking about the change in music and how Fenton wasn’t enjoying the music of the band he was in at the time. They said their farewells but Deany started thinking why not start the band now instead of waiting until we got back.
