03/01/21 It's looking like some dates are inking for SCARAB for 2021. Hopefully they will stick. Keep checking back as I'm sure more will get added and the schedule may change periodically depending on current pandemic situation. Stay safe everyone and hope to see you all soon.

04/10/20 Hey there everyone! Hope you all and your familys are staying safe and healthy during the pandemic. While it's something most of us have never experienced in our lifetime, it is something hopefully we all will get through. Hoping it is over soon and we can all get back to our "normal" lives and continue to rock and hang together. Bravo, many Thanks and prayers to all on the front lines of this! I appreciate you and your familys sacrifices that are made while you support those in need. From doctors & nurses, police, Fire depts & EMTs, to those often forgotten that are pushing carriages, stocking shelves, and ringing us up so we have supplies and food.

Most of our shows for SCARAB from March thru May (and potentially beyond May) have already been rescheduled. If you purchased tickets in advanced they will be honored for the new date. Keep checking the Dates page and I'll update you as I know.

SCARAB will be hitting the road again in 2020 starting in January and celebrate their 10th anniversary tour. Dates are just starting to be added now with many more to come that will go into November of 2020. Keep checking back to the schedule/dates page for a city near you.
10/20/19 The SCARAB tour ended at the end of September. We went all over the US starting in Ohio in Feb. and finishing in Vermont . As usual we met a lot of great people and other bands along the jaunt. Now that I am off for a few months I have a couple other projects going. I have been working with some local musicians on a new original project. We worte eleven songs and have decided to put out an EP with five songs on it. The recording process has started and all my drum tracks are done. We're hoping for an early 2020 release.

I've also teamed up with Eddie from BOTTOMS UP and another great player Vinny Nault to form a fun side tribute to do when SCARAB &/or BOTTOMS UP isn't busy. LIVE GONZO! is a tribute to the music of Ted Nugent. For us it's all about the "MUSIC". We know people either love Ted or hate him because of his opinions on politics, hunting, and general daily topics. Yes.. he's very vocal about his beliefs but know this... We LOVE his music and that of Derek St. Holmes and that's the ONLY reason why we decided to do LIVE GONZO! Our shows will NOT consist of preaching Ted-isms or his stances of what he believes in. It will just be about the music and a high energy fun rock show.

Dates for SCARAB are being booked now for 2020, so we will be back out there across the US again and with some LIVE GONZO! shows woven into the schedule also. 2020 should be busy for me so I'm enjoying some down time with the family and still doing a lot behind the scenes. I can't ever just sit around. All the best to you all always...

3/15/19 SCARAB's 2019 North American Tour has begun and many new dates are being added so keep checking back for areas near you! BOTTOMS UP will also hopefully be doing a couple one off shows this year. Stay tuned!  
9/5/18 I will be performing at this event at around 6:30pm. Come on out, say hi, see all the other great performances, enjoy amazing music and most of all support two suicide awareness charaties.

12/12/15 Hey there everyone!
First off, I'd like to say thank you to you all for another great year and for supporting me as well as the bands and projects I'm involved in. You all are what making music and touring worth while for me and I love rocking for you all.

Here's whats going on right now for me. I am currently recording a Tribute to Peter Criss and KISS CD that is looking to be out in March 2016. All the proceeds will be going to a worthy cancer foundation to help fight against and find a cure for this ongoing horrible disease. BOTTOMS UP is in the studio right now working on our follow up to "Shelter From The Storm". We're hoping to have it out by the summer 2016. I will also be touring around the country again with SCARAB in 2016.

I also want to wish you all a great holiday season and an up coming prosperous, safe and healthy New Year for 2016.

I'll see you all out on the road in 2016.
Much love always and thank you for your ongoing support!



02/08/15 Here's the scoop so far for 2015. It's looking like I will be touring the US & Canada this year with SCARAB. Many shows have been added and many more to come. Keep checking back for updated tour dates. BOTTOMS UP have been hard at work writing new material for a new studio album. We have almost enough for a double album, but we'll demo and decide what will make it. Who knows... maybe if it's all worthy we'll record two seperate albums while we're in the studio. A huge thank you to all the companies, my A/R guys, and their great gear that I've been using recently or for years. You power me and my performances!! I am honored to be on your rosters. As always, I thank you all for the support... You all rock my world which allows me to rock yours! See you on the road!

05/20/13 Boomer has been asked to be involved in a great new cause and help raise awareness of a constant issue ; Bullying. We've all known someone that may have been a bully to someone and the person on the receiving end. In some extreme cases children/teenagers have been put through so much abuse they've unfortunately found no other alternative to stop the constant pain or bullying and take their own life. This action has GOT TO STOP. Rockers Against Bullying is an organization that is raising awareness about this on going problem and helping people that have been bullied, families that have lost a loved one due to bullying, and also getting people the help they need to overcome through music related events.

Please check out this facebook page, like it, and share it. You could help make a difference in some ones life. Thanks in advance!

Headline : J. "Boomer" Grenier  steps down from THE HOUNDS OF HASSELVANDER

New Hampshire/U.S.A 11/18/11

Due to prior commitments, J. Boomer Grenier has left the drummer position in THE HOUNDS OF HASSELVANDER. While all is well in THE HOUNDS camp, and the new CD "The Ninth Hour" scheduled for release on 11/26, a tour must follow and Boomer is unable to participate. The split is amicable and most likely temporary with studio and possibly more live performances almost certain in the future. Brothers bonded in spirit, mind, and music.... Joe Hasselvander and J. Boomer Grenier support each others musical ventures and will continue to do so hoping to work together again when the moon is full and the hounds bay in warning of the impending doom.  Boomer welcomes T.C. Tolliver (formerly of The Plasmatics) to THE HOUNDS. " I wish Joe, T.C. and the band nothing but the best and have the utmost respect for them. I'll always be a part of THE HOUNDS OF HASSELVANDER family and look forward to whatever comes down the road".

Helloooooo there!!!
I hope everyone had a Happy & safe Halloween! It's definitely my favorite
holiday and a fun time of the year for most.  I'd love to see your cool rockin' & scary Halloween costumes.
What were ya??
So...the new BOTTOMS UP CD is done being recorded. We finished it this week and will be heading in to start the mixing process. We're extremely pleased with the way it's turning out. It has some elements of the "Shelter" disc, but leaning more to the heavier and angry side with still keeping our BOTTOMS UP
signature sound. There's plenty of catchy riffs and choruses with melodic harmonies thrown in also. I/We can't wait for you to hear it and hope you will all dig it as much as we do.
I have a few things on the drawing board for next year that I've been working on, as well as some new signature "Boomer" drum gear that I'll hopefully be able to tell you all about soon also. It's cool exciting stuff that I look forward to sharing as soon as I can.
A new music Facebook page is up for me. If you're on facebook, please go to:
and "Like" my new page. I'd be honored to have you on board with me there as well. You can keep up with where I'll be and what I'm doing musically on a daily basis. Please also feel free to share it with all of your friends and anyone you think would be into what I do musically.
Also.. I wanted to thank you all again for checking out what's going on in my world on my new website. Yup..I can see ya.. LOL 
Thanks to my friends and fans in Japan, Sweden, France, Singapore, Thailand, Germany, Ukraine, Slovakia, Mexico, Seychelles, Guatemala, and here in the states for checking in. I sincerely appreciate your constant interest and support
of what I do. Keep on sending me emails. I love hearing from you all and chatting music and answering questions etc. !
I live and breath music and am just as much of a fan as I am a musician. Music is universal and really what makes the world, and "my" world go 'round.
See ya on the road and the web!

8/18/11 I'm blown away by the overwhelming positive responses from around the world on my new website. Those in Russia, Italy, Indonesia, Serbia, and Brazil ...             Thank you and I'm honored to have you aboard.  I sincerely appreciate you all and your constant support!      BOTTOMS UP will be continuing on in the studio finishing up a few vocal tracks. We should be on to mixing and mastering the new CD in September. We're shooting for a release date in time for the holidays. I'll keep you updated on the progress.  

Hey there everyone!  My new website is almost completed and hopefully it will help you all, (and myself too) keep updated on everything I have going on, with who and where I'll be playing, & all new news and happenings with me and any projects I have going on now or in the future.
If you have any cool pictures from any of my shows or appearances you'd like to see in the Galleries section, please feel free to email them to me. I'd love to see them & share them as well. If you have any questions, comments, or just want chat music, please feel free to hit me up anytime.
I'd also like to thank my webmaster (Mike H) for all his hard work & time on this website.
Thank you all for your continued support, and for supporting the bands and projects I'm involved in.
I sincerely appreciate it and look foward to see you at the shows.
All the best!
