The Paper Jets made their unofficial return to the stage on Monday April 11th with a surprise 10-song set at Asbury Park’s famous Wonder Bar. Opening for scene favorites Lowlight, The band rose to the occasion, showcasing set list staples like “Set of Rules” alongside a smattering of songs slated for their forthcoming full-length, Everyday Forever.

In addition to new material, the group introduced its audience to bassist Scott Austin Miller who has replaced sub-60 Hz stalwart Scottie Maloney in the lineup.

All this was of course in preparation for the group’s official Welcome Back show on May 7th at New Brunswick’s Court Tavern.

Our First Show of 2016

This past Monday February 29th, The Paper Jets made an announcement on their Facebook page: they scheduled their first (and thus far only) show of 2016.

In August 2015, the band had announced a break from the road in order to prepare for their new album, Everyday Forever. Thus far no date, time, or supporting acts have been announced, but the band did drop this teaser flyer on its page…

Watch the ‘Full Count’ Pilot (And Listen to the Theme Song)

February 2, 2016 saw the premiere of a new TV pilot called, ‘Full Count,’ for which our own Brian Erickson has written and performed the theme song.

The show, which chronicles the follies of a city restaurant softball team called the Bread Sox is the brainchild of comedian Rob Ryan and 186 Productions.  Erickson was brought on board to pen the theme song back in the Fall.  The late Tim Ryan (Rob’s older brother) contributed incidental music to the program, as well.

Paper Jets manager Bill Greenwood was also on hand at the premiere, along with Brian’s longtime girlfriend (and band photographer) Amanda Guthrie.

The show will tour the festival circuit, be pitched to various networks, and will make its Los Angeles premiere in the coming weeks.

The ‘Full Count’ pilot is now up and available for viewing. Brian’s theme song starts at the 21:56 mark. But don’t skip ahead; watch the show first!
