Jane Bassett

lead vocals

Born and raised in Muskegon, Michigan, my involvement in music began when I was just a child. My father was a member of the Barbershoppers chorus (S.P.E.B.S.Q.S.A.) and my mother belonged to the Sweet Adelines chorus. As a teenager I participated for three years with the Sweet Adelines and with a barbershop quartet. It was the influence of my parents and being always surrounded by singing that helped develop my passion as a vocalist.

I joined my first rock band, Maarx, at the age of 18. We were a contemporary lite rock band and performed mostly in lounge type settings around Muskegon. At 21, I formed a band called Fallen Angel along with my friend Joe Locke, a guitar player. We played top 40 style rock n roll in local area clubs, as well as serving as the opening act for the Romantics at the Galaxy Arena in Muskegon.

JaneI was the lead vocalist for Tight Fit from its birth in 1987 until the band took a needed break in 1993. In addition to lead and backing vocals, I played keyboards and wrote original songs which we performed live and recorded in the studio. Other bands I have been involved with include Septre, Kyks and Power Play from Muskegon, and Sweet Revenge, a Grand Rapids based 80's hard rock band. For the past few years I have been playing bass and leading a worship team at New Heart Community Church in Fruitport, Michigan.

The rebirth of Tight Fit is something I've anticipated for a long time, and I look forward to once again being part of a band that provides West Michigan with high energy rock n roll and a lot of great times!
