Playing in bands. Playing not in bands.
Jay Tea (a.k.a. J.T. Turret) began making his mark on the New York punk-ska scene in 1999 as a member of The Arrogant Sons of Bitches (A.S.O.B.). He played keyboard and sang on 4 albums including their final masterpiece "Three Cheers For Disappointment". The record gained the band an international cult following.
After A.S.O.B., Jay Tea concocted a solo act incorporating crowd interaction, stand-up, impressions, and his own brand of edgy acoustic musical comedy. He's known for playing on-the-spot requests for any song ever written. Jay Tea brought his act on the road as the only solo artist on the VANS WARPED TOUR 2006. On Warped he would often collaborate with legendary FISHBONE front man Angelo Moore. He self released the album "Demo(n)" in 2009. He also fronted the bands Sprout (1997-2003), Hello Nurse (2010-2011), and the cover band cover band Me Next and the Gimme Mores (2011-present). He's performed (musically and acrobatically) on keyboard with
The Fad, High School Football Heroes, I Voted For Kodos, and The Nix 86.
On memorial day weekend 2012 Jay Tea reunited with A.S.O.B. for a run of shows that drew fans from all over the world. After years of solitary touring by plane, train, and car he created the Ska Goes Solo tour (Winter 2014). Mr. Tea is beyond ecstatic about hitting the road & stage with his brothers in ska-punk Ryan Eldred of CATCH 22 and Chris DeMakes of LESS THAN JAKE.
