“High Octane Rockabilly.” Those are the words that best describe the music and showmanship of The Headers. The Headers stage show includes a fun, danceable mix of originals, select covers and on stage antics that hearken back to the days of the sock hops but propels the style into the future by adding infusions of jazz, country, chicken pickin’, and rock. With nominations in the last 6 Buffalo Music Awards, 3 well received CDs (and a 4th in the works), local, regional, and national airplay, and countless well attended shows at venues that seat as many as 20,000 enthusiastic patrons, these cats are a party looking for a place to happen. They tore it up in Tampa as one of the headliners for the Feb. 2010 WMNF Rockabilly Ruckus, and the band was asked back for a 2nd year at Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA, this time as a headliner.

Guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, Bobby Lebel fronts the Headers. Gretsch endorsee, former “Road” alumni and an inductee in the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, Bobby’s numerous album projects have earned him notoriety and a record deal in Italy. He has jammed on stage with such greats as Edgar Winter and band members of Ted Nugent, Chick Corea and Robben Ford. He has backed up stars like Kathie Lee Guifford and opened shows for Rare Earth, America, Three Dog Night, Head East, Twisted Sister and James Cotton. Lebel’s songwriting for this project is heavily influenced by Sun-Records-Era Elvis, Eddie Cochran’s rockabilly, Bobby Darin’s swing style, Dick Dale’s surf wave and the picking of Les Paul and Merle Travis.


Award winning musician, Buffalo Music Hall of Famer, and Gretsch endorsee Bobby Lebel has openings for a limited number of motivated students in the Buffalo, Amherst, Williamsville, Cheeektowaga, and Clarence.
