Bakersfield Sound Tribute at Belly Up >> Aug 2

I'm hosting another Barroom Ball this week at Belly Up Tavern, Solana Beach CA

Join us for a tribute to the Bakersfield sound, 
with songs by Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yoakam, Wynn Stewart and more!

Also included will be original California country by Brawley and Gethen Jenkins.
Special appearance by Graham Nancarrow.

Gethen Jenkins (formerly The Freightshakers)
2015 Ameripolitan Music Award winner "Outlaw Group"

“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

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.

Java Joe's 6/17 Special Show + Alive SD video

This Saturday's Java Joe's show will be a quiet, intimate acoustic night, showcasing vocals, songwriting and the artists/songs that have influenced my music over the last 20 years.  Featuring guitarist, Deane Cote, we will perform a set of my original songs from the first that I wrote to more recent explorations, followed by a set of songs that have provided me endless inspiration. 
I'm really looking forward to sharing them with you!
And, if you didn't know, the NEW Java Joe's has a summery outdoor stage
in the heart of Old Town, San Diego. All Ages.

I was honored to be the first artist featured on Listen Local Radio's 
Alive in San Diego program's new location at San Dieguito Heritage Park in Encinitas, CA.
Watch the interview by Cathryn Beeks below with a live cut of "Kiss You Goodnight."
