Pretend Friend, Jeffrey Dallet

Pretend Friend


Pretend Friend is a progressive bluegrass band from Wichita, Kansas that is actively expanding their touring region and audience since 2017. Pretend Friend sounds like the quick-pickin’, supercharged offspring of Robert Plant and the Stanley Brothers, and their performances are marked by exceptional improvisation, entrancing harmonies, and dancing, percussive rhythms. Pretend Friend’s songs are laced with catchy melodic hooks and contemplative lyrics.

Pretend Friend’s songwriting, vocal stylings, and high-energy delivery all hint at their origins in rock and roll. Pretend Friend was forever transformed on the dirt roads of the Pecan Grove during the 2017 Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield, Kansas. The music in the smoky campgrounds among thousands of friends was impactful. The grass took hold, and the roots went deep.

Pretend Friend’s music has since reflected the melding of unlike worlds; the familiar, timeless melodies and sentiments of traditional American music with the raw, powerful delivery of rock and roll. Forever in pursuit of musical excellence, and consistently tight, right, and genre-defying.

Jeffrey Dallet


Jeffrey has won awards for his songwriting, winning an Akedamia best folk song award for his song “Gypsy Jewel”, and winning a best song contest in the Colorado Music Business Award for his songs “Odd Ball Blues” and “Mile High Lament.” Dallet’s myriad life experiences have all contributed to his unique style of songwriting which blends storytelling, social commentary, and lost love.
