DETROIT PROUD: Jet Rodriguez

“The fact that it’s got such a great history makes me want to be a part of it, in some small way. It may never ever work out that way, but when it’s all said and done, I would like to have in some way made a fingerprint on the culture of this city, and the attitude toward it. It also holds us to a certain standard musically.” Those are the words of Cameron Navetta, acoustic guitar and vocals for the Detroit band Jet Rodriguez, speaking of Detroit’s renowned music scene.
