WOW! We don't know what else to say. Last night at the Liberty Theatre was an incredible show. A HUGE thanks to all the kids for coming out in force and making the night one of our most memorable as a band. The show was sold out and hundreds of kids got turned away at the door. We were cleaned out of nearly all our merchandise - which means we'll have to come up with some new cool stuff for the Impact show next Friday. Special thanks to the organizers, KGRG for sending reps to the show and playing us so much and to all the other great bands - Instant Winner, The Geeks, Go Ahead, Ruckus and Inner Self. Definitely a great way to start out the summer!

Our first show was off the hook last night. We played with a local Detroit band called the Cyril Lords and of course Link Wray. Our set was well received and the stage and sound were top notch. Justin and Dana slammed some rock with the legendary Link Wray for nearly 2 hours. They ran through classics like Rumble, Jack The Ripper, Ace Of Spades, Run Chicken Run, Tornado Rock, Hot Sauce, Batman, Spiderman, Shawnee, and Branded and the partisan crowd was eating it up. A big shout out to Dave Alford in Detroit - thanks for making our 3 days in town rock so very hard! We're off to Milwaukee.....

February 6, 2003
Hey Folks!

THE JET CITY FIX are hitting the road.....

Get ready to rumble! When it comes to innovation in the vocabulary of electric rock guitar, few can hold their own against the legendary Link Wray. With heaps of rawness and distortion, Wray rewrote the book on rock guitar in the Fifties. And he continues to crank his amp and bend those strings around such signature tunes of his as "Rumble," "Ramble," "Ace of Spades," and "Jack the Ripper." Heck, this guy's so bad, and such a primeval rock and roller, that the authorities banned an INSTRUMENTAL track of his because of the juvenile delinquent vibes it radiated. Give the guy some bonus points for STILL not being in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. THE JET CITY FIX will not only be opening for Link Wray on this entire 4 week tour but the powerhouse rhythm section of Justin McDonald and Dana Sims will be pulling double duty as members of Link Wray's band!
The confirmed dates as of today are as follows:

2/12 - Detroit, MI - The Magic Stick
2/14 - Milwaukee, WI - Vnuks Lounge
2/15 - Dekalb, IL - Otto's
2/16 - Madison, WI - Luthers Blues
2/17 - Minneapolis, MN - Fine Line Music Cafe
2/19 - Chicago, IL - Abbey Pub
2/21 - Cleveland, OH - Beachland Ballroom
2/22 - Pittsburgh, PA - Moondogs
2/23 - Rochester, NY - Montage Grill
2/25 - Buffalo, NY - Mohawk Place
2/27 - New Haven, CT - Toad's Place
2/28 - Farmingdale, NY - The Downtown

3/1 - Philadelphia, PA - North By Northwest
3/2 - Piermont, NY - Turning Point
3/3 - Northampton, MA - Iron Horse Music Hall
3/7 - Asbury Park, NJ - Stone Pony
3/8 - New York, NY - Village Underground
