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] and the now defunct Jett Pangan Group. He is also an actor, appearing in several TV and films, most notably his role in Tulad ng Dati. He is the half-brother of John Lapus.[citation needed]

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 become one of the most successful rock bands in the Philippines, The Dawn.

After the disbandment of The Dawn in 1995, the band 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, Pangan 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 Pangan continuing to perform with The Dawn.

Other work[edit]

In between touring and recording, Pangan finds time to act in musical theater.[citation needed]

Anime roles[edit]
