Jett Pangan (born Reginald Pangan on June 21, 1968) is a Filipino singer and guitarist best known for fronting the Filipino rock bands The Dawn,[1] formed in 1985-1995 and 1999-present and still active to date, and the defunct Jett Pangan Group from 1995-2001. He is also an actor, appearing in several TV and films, most notably his role in Tulad ng Dati and also does stage work and hosting Myx Live. He is the half-brother of John Lapus.

The Dawn (1985-1995, 1999-present)[edit]

Pangan's love for singing was already evident during his grade school and high school years in San Beda College. While attending college at De La Salle University-Manila, he was approached to audition for a band that would later etch its name in the annals of Philippine music history

The Dawn would later on hold a sold-out reunion concert at the ULTRA basketball stadium in 1997, an event that didn't prove to be the spark that would ignite a re-grouping. However, in 1999, the band members were unanimous in taking The Dawn back on the road.

Solo work and Jett Pangan Group (1995-2001)[edit]

When The Dawn disbanded in 1995, Jett moved on to work as a recording company executive and was later persuaded to release the solo album "Spell". Not long after, The Jett Pangan Group was formed and successfully released two albums.

They disbanded in 2001 with Jett continues to perform with The Dawn.

In between a heavy touring and recording schedule, Jett finds time to act in musical theater, yet another field that earns him critical acclaim.
