GETHEN JENKINS & THE FREIGHTSHAKERS
GETHEN JENKINS & THE FREIGHTSHAKERS
Modern day honkytonk heroes, Gethen Jenkins and The Freightshakers, deliver high octane classic country music with an outlaw stance. With David Gilliard on upright bass, Gary Brandin on pedal steel, Dale Daniel on drums and Jeremy Long on everything else, you're already havin' a good night, add the unparalleled baritone of lead singer Gethen Jenkins and they will have to kick you out at closin time! These boys take the myth making and truth telling that is outlaw country music to a higher level in a good ole honkytonk kinda way.

Born on the banks of the Ohio River, in the Tri-state area, where Kentucky, Ohio, and West "By God" Virginia come together, Gethen Jenkins was born and bred 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. His teenage years were spent in Galena, a rural indian village on the Yukon River, deep in the Alaskan tundra. Thankfully for the ladies, Alaska didn't take away that southern charm, or West Virginia accent. After 8 years in the U.S.Marines, Gethen landed in Southern California. Returning from Iraq, and determined to sing his own song, he found his home in honkytonk. Over the next several years Gethen immersed himself in his music, emerging as the larger than life frontman of The Freightshakers. His first love is music and it shows!
