The writing teams of Shawn & Jesse go as far back as their first band in 1991 (Foster Child).
Mat & Dave Major’s friendship go as far back as 5 year old kiddies.
The band has stuck with their golden rule, to have fun & write music they like. This demo received amazing reviews from around the world & The 2nd Indie single “It’s Alright” was released across the U.S.A. through New York label Rut Records.
Another first for the band was to perform on one of the years biggest tours (Vans Warped Tour) making stops in Montreal Quebec (Park Jon Dropeau), Barrie Ontario (Molson Park) & the biggest stop of the tour was 20,500 people @ the Pontiac Silver Dome in Michigan U.S.A.. The guys were invited to more dates but had prior commitments at the time, (This was their respective hobby, so they had day jobs and family back home to go back to).
Despite all the good fortune, the band continues on as always & is not buying into the hype. The band has become infamous for their party antics on & off the stage. The two Dave’s are the newest additions to the band, joining in 2001.
The Janet Theory disbanded in 2004 but went out finishing there 2nd year of Warped Tour (2004) which included the Canadian & Mid U.S.A. legs of the tour.
The members went on to take it easy for awhile raising their families while still playing a little for fun. Mat & Dave Major went on to form ‘The Sound Of Static’. Dave Richie, Jesse & Shawn went on to form ‘Dead Girls Union’. Shawn also released home demos under his home recording moniker ‘Demo Kid’.
