Each performance is customized to the nature of the event, your desires, and the response of the audience.

For members of The Headliners, versatility and crowd pleasing are a way of life. Two of the band's members, Bill Baucom and Bob Christian, have performed together for over 27 years and have established a solid reputation for quality, dependability, versatility and professionalism. Bob, certainly one of the most versatile and experienced drummers in the business, keeps the band cooking with everything from swing to rock. Bill provides a wide variety of vocals and also plays guitar and piano.

Jim Baird is the group's bass player and one of its three vocalists. Jim is equally comfortable with jazz, beach, rhythm & blues, rock and classical music and has an extensive and diverse performing background. Hubert Deans is the keyboardist and provides the band with additional lead vocals as well.
