With a sound as classic as the crackling of a Sun Records vinyl still spinning somewhere in Memphis, yet as fresh as the musical stylings of the 21st century, Jared Petteys & The Headliners are busy making waves with their genre-bending brand of tunes. Reminiscent of the vibrant heyday of rock n roll music, the band finds their origins in the styles of classic country, rockabilly, surf, and blues all the while ushering in a new era of rock-and-roll that is as distinctive as the men who form it. Born in the marshes of coastal South Carolina, Jared Petteys (lead vocals/guitar), Stephen Palmer (upright bass), and Russell Lee (drums/backing vocals), blended their unique individualities and influences together to create a band with a rare sincerity that is not often seen in today’s industry. They have spent the past five years cutting their teeth in the South Eastern music scene while simultaneously running the roads discovering who they are and where they belong in the world as they plant roots in towns big and small across the country by burning down every stage they step on. Their high-energy, emotive stage presence is as lively as their melodies."
Coming hot off the heels of major festival appearances, such as Hot Rod Rock & Rumble, Rockabillaque, and Steel In Motion, where they have quickly become known as a fan favorite, Jared Petteys & The Headliners have found success by sharing stages with iconic acts like Reverend Horton Heat, Lee Rocker of Stray Cats and Wayne "The Train" Hancock as well as booking upcoming dates alongside some admirable company—namely, Southern Culture On The Skids and Hillbilly Casino. Solidifying their status as bona fide road warriors, the band has honed their sound by way of paying their dues in dives and little venues around the United States all the while fostering relationships in the course of wowing audiences, ultimately gaining momentum propelling them towards larger stages in anticipation of releasing their newest EP, Shake A Little, in 2023. Quickly gaining traction after their formation in 2018 after accolades such as Top Finalist in the world wide songwriting competition Rockabilly Rumble, Gretsch Guitar's Spotlight Artist Of The Month in 2021, and Best Local Band 2020 & 2022 nomination by the Charleston City Paper. Furthermore they are a band on a mission, to save American roots rock n roll music and deliver it to the next generation.
