Shinyribs in concert
A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip-shaking, belly-laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on and kissed on by this world-class band featuring frontman Kevin Russell, keyboardist Winfield Cheek, bassist Jeff Brown, drummer Keith Langford, the Tijuana Trainwreck Horns, and The Shiny Soul Sisters.
Whether on his six-string uke or his electric guitar or singing acappella, Russell entertains like no one else. The freedom with which he moves, coupled with his incredible voice is an experience in and of itself. His original songs laced with magical-realism along with novel interpretations of popular songs old and new are the true art that runs throughout. He’s Burl Ives meets Al Green, Hank Jr. meets Teddy Pendergrass, Wendell Berry meets Chuck Berry.
