Jetset Getset to Make Hollywood Debut at Young Artist Awards, 5/5
Teenage musical group Jetset Getset, recently named by the Country Music Association in Nashville among "Who New to Watch in 2013," will perform in Los Angeles for the first time at the 34th Young Artist Awards (YAA) on Sunday, May 5. The annual event honors child and teen actors and actresses in movies and television.
Later that evening, the group will perform at The Ranch country music nightclub in Anaheim, with special guest Ben Babylon, an award-winning, teenage musician who is gaining popularity in Southern California.
Jetset Getset, which has performed primarily in the South and the Midwest, is currently on a radio tour to promote their album, "Saturday Night" (Playback Records). Fronted by three female singers-Tori Little (16), Sadie Loveland (16) and Avery Eliason (15)-the group has been compared by some critics to a younger version of the Dixie Chicks. Music News Nashville wrote that Jetset Getset has "the potential to be country music's next powerhouse female trio." Music Connection Magazine described their style as "sprightly country twang."
"We are excited to be invited to take part in the Young Artist Awards," said Kelli Jette, manager of Jetset Getset. "The Young Artist Foundation does a wonderful job of helping kids who want to pursue the performing arts, and that is something Jetset Getset is passionate about."
Other members of Jetset Getset are guitarists Jason Owens and Justen Jette, bass player Paul Kelley, drummer Gillian Bowman and keyboardist Terry Ranck.
