Jovert

When people hear Jovert, they will hear familiar songs…they just won’t hear them in a familiar way. Far from the typical steel drum band, when Jovert plays, listeners can expect to be surprised, enlightened, and above all, entertained. Students from Tucson High Magnet School in Tucson, Arizona, make up Jovert. Originally started in 1991 as the Tucson High Steel Band, the program developed over its first few years, but remained small until its present director, Khris Dodge, arrived on the scene in 1999. Today, the program boasts four bands and over 110 students.
