Crew Profile: Jason Hees

November 12, 2008

Crew member Jason Hees is Darius Goes West’s resident strong man. He’s really good at lifting stuff.

You’ll find him behind Darius in a lot of pictures…

or just along the corners of the frame.

Jason also owns an iPhone. So, until our wonderful friends at Syracuse got us a GPS system for the RV, Jason was our de facto navigator. Now, he uses the iPhone to settle bets.

However, Jason also has tremendous musical talent. He’s a major force behind Darius’s aspiring rap career, and D looks to him as a producer and a role model.

As a musician, Jason felt he could explain himself best in rhyme-form.

At first it was all about music, drumming, /
and a melody you would be humming.

I went to Middle Tennessee State University /
where I learned the music business and a lil diversity.

After that it was a band called The Hot Rocks, /
we played everywhere–even a few sock hops.

Opened for some bands like Blessid Union of Souls, Family Force Five, and Switchfoot, /
but we have since been on break cause we can’t stay put.

‘Twas off to Berklee College of Music in Boston /
where I learned some new grooves, but think I have lost em.’

Now I stay confined to the sweet studio sound /
and I got a few kids running around.

Got to pay for two SUVs /
but that can wait until we sell 1 million DVDs!!!

    Jason, you are one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met. Thanks for making the Toledo tour stop a fun time. I wish I could take a couple weeks off and just travel with the crew. You guys are a blast.

    okay, all the crew is awsome(Darius is awsomest), but Jason has gotta be the wackiest. So, therefor, Jason wins my award for craziest DGW crew member. Yay!
