Reaction Jacket is the culmination of the many years of hard work and experiences of four young musicians. In a somewhat classic tale of “returning to your roots,” guitarist Ross Drivdahl and bassist Suzy Drivdahl reunited with Suzy’s brother, and guitarist, Jake Mittelstaed, years after having broken up their previous band, Cypher. After many failed attempts to find a compatible drummer, Jake contacted a childhood friend, Jacob Dietz, and Reaction Jacket was born.
With their playful banter, and dynamic onstage presence, it’s not hard to tell the members of Reaction Jacket have been performing together (in one way or another) for most of their lives.
Pairing powerful vocals with strong, hooky guitar riffs; driving bass lines, commanding drum beats, and screaming guitar solos; Reaction Jacket creates a sound very much their own. Whether its one of their wide range of covers, or hard hitting originals.
Reaction Jacket is where hard rock meets post grunge. Classic rock and roll roots, with a metal attitude.
