Gethen Jenkins

With his powerful, gut wrenching, baritone sound, Gethen Jenkins is on a fast train to stardom. Gethen is an award winning singer and songwriter from Huntington, West Virginia. His songs are of considerable depth and meaning, driven by passion, and full of heart and spirit which are sure to run the gamut of human emotions.

“The relationship between the listeners and music is what I feed on.”

Gethen’s journey began surrounded by American music, from the purest of Bluegrass to whiskey soaked Honkytonk. Music took hold at the age of eight, beating on his dad’s Gibson guitar. His teenage years were spent in Galena, a rural indian village on the Yukon River, deep in the Alaskan tundra. After 8 years in the U.S. Marines, Gethen landed in Southern California. Returning from Iraq, determined to sing his own song, he found a home in Country Music with his five piece band The Freightshakers (since revamped as Gethen Jenkins). Over the next several years Gethen immersed himself in his music, working hard to create a unique sound keeping true to his roots.

“This hard-driving, honky-tonk group lead by Gethen Jenkins is a perfect way to spend any night, wherever it may take you.” – National Country Review

Sharing the stage with a range of artists from Marshall Tucker Band, David Allan Coe, Billy Joe Shaver, Red Simpson, Dale Watson, Junior Brown, Shooter Jennings, Wanda Jackson, and Asleep at the Wheel, this band is just getting started.

The Sickstring Outlaws

The Sickstring Outlaws are a rugged, outlaw country band based in the San Diego area. “We have an aggressive sound,” says the band, “with story-telling vocals about real life, hard-working men, the day-to-day struggle with substance abuse, and some of our most favorite honky-tonk heroes…we don’t try to sugar-coat anything.”

Their album Johnny Drank Jack was nominated Best Local Recording at the 2013 San Diego Music Awards. Their second full-length album, Electric Moonshine, was released in Autumn 2014.

The band has had the good fortune, through hard work, to open for the likes of David Allan Coe, The Marshall Tucker Band and Merle Jagger, as-well-as many local acts; such as the popular tribute band Cash’d Out, Married by Elvis, Three Bad Jacks, and many more. They have performed at many venues, such as Brick by Brick, Adams Ave. Street Fair, San Diego Fair, Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego Sports Arena and The Knitting Factory in Hollywood, The Ramona Mainstage (sold out show w/ David Allan Coe), Winstons, Dream Street Live, and Gallagher’s to name just a few. The Sickstring Outlaws have taken the hard road by playing original songs, staying true to what they believe in and working hard to keep outlaw country music alive. By sheer determination, they are starting to gain a large and strong fan base everywhere they play. If you happen to catch their live show… you will not be disappointed.
