Jet Black Motorcade
Jet Black Motorcade is Loud Power Punk Pop Rock from Boston.
The Band officially formed in 2012, but their history goes way back.....
Jim Gray, Jon Rutkowski & Ken Berardinangelo were in the band Coppertree together, and as Guitarist Matt Hallahan recalls
"I actually started out playing bass back in High School when Jim said they were looking for a bass player for their band.
I had never played bass guitar, but I wasn't going to let that get in the way."
The band's infectious melodies meld with crunching guitars to make Jet Black Motorcade's signature sound.
Check out for yourself what the buzz is about...
JEALOUS DOGS, a high-octane mix of groove-laden hooks and ferocious guitar riffs was formed in Boston, MA in 1991 from a diverse cast of successful Boston bands including Egypt, Jetblack Delilah, Bad Bones and 7th Heaven. Drawing from their collective musical influences, the band members combined their love of Aerosmith grooves, AC|DC riffs and Queen-esq harmonies to create their unique 'Dog' sound, with
songs like "Senorita", "Shotgun Sally", "Heaven Only Knows" and their 'acoustic' re-working of the AC/DC classic "Shoot To Thrill" quickly becoming fan favorites.
In addition to the bands musical approach, the Jealous Dogs were known by audiences and fellow Boston bands alike for their over the top live performances. "We always had a very KISS-like mentality when it came to the live show. We wanted the audience to feel like they were seeing us at the Boston Garden, regardless the size of the club" remarked lead singer Michael Bourque. From laser lighting, video projection and stage ramps to guitar-smashing and rotating drum-risers, the Jealous Dogs did not disappoint. Between 1991 and 1993, the Dogs rapidly became one of the highest drawing bands on the New England club circuit, performing consistently to packed houses along with other great Boston bands of the era Flesh, Tin Pan Alley and Sweet Cheater, as well as national acts including Ace Frehley and Extreme.
After an almost 15 year break, the band reformed in the summer of 2007 to perform at the Boston Rocks Reunion Bash to benefit the Doug Flutie Foundation for Autism. The concert, held at Boston's famed Paradise rock club, was an instant sell-out and featured the Jealous Dogs on the cover of the Boston Globe. "We had such a good time playing together again and felt so welcomed by our friends that it just felt 'right' to keep moving forward" stated drummer David Christensen. The band has performed consistently since 2007, including the ‘Music For Monica’ benefit with FLESH and the 'Narcissus Reunion' show at Showcase Live.
Sweet Cheater was very popular in the late 1980's, and played to many packed houses at some now defunct rock clubs like The Channel, Narcissus, Bunratty's, the Infinity, Katina's and Bridges. The band was featured in many national and local magazines during that time. Sweet Cheater was managed by Dee Anthony (Peter Frampton, J. Geils, Joe Cocker, and Tony Bennett).
The band members went their separate ways in 1990, and had no contact with one another until 2006. Sweet Cheater is back and rocking harder then ever, playing some live shows. Over the past few years the band has opened for Judas Priest, Whitesnake, Cinderella and Slaughter. On what is now the 25th anniversary of Sweet Cheater being formed by Tom Flaherty, they are in the studio recording a follow up album to Eatin' Ain't Cheatin', which is still listened to by fans everywhere.
