Hunter J and the Jets are a Vancouver Band that has been performing locally since 2016. They play roots rock and blues, covering songs from the 1950’s to the 21st century. The band is led by Hunter J, who started playing guitar at five years old, and then started performing live to audiences when he was nine years old. Hunter is twelve and a seasoned performer having done more than 70 shows. The band started out as a duo in 2016 with Tyler J on bass and backing and expanded to a trio in 2017 with the addition of Paul Davis on percussion and backing vocals. Shortly thereafter Roger Salloum joined the band on lead guitar/keyboard and backing vocals.
Hunter J and the Jets can be found at local farmers markets and community events as well as many summer festivals such as the 2019 Khatsahlano Street Party. They were a regular feature at the famous Libra Room on Commercial Drive (which sadly closed in December 2019). With hundreds of overseas fans following them on Instagram, the band have their sights set on a tour of Japan in the coming years!
