The Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience will be performing at the Mabel Tainter on Friday, October 8, 2021, at 7:30 pm.
Shaun Johnson is an Emmy-winning singer/songwriter who's sold nearly two million albums as part of the nationally known vocal group, Tonic Sol-fa. Members of the band have toured with Aretha Franklin, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and New Kids on the Block.
They are heavily influenced by the big band era but never feel as if they live anywhere but the present, covering the likes of Rihanna. Shaun and the band are introducing what they call the new evolution of big band music.
Few acts can channel Sinatra as he softly croons about lost love, inhabit Citizen Cope as he belts one out, and then segue into the theme from Spiderman without any indication that these musicians, these eras, and these styles were ever anything but destined to go together.
Their sound is centered on innovation to ensure that while each performance is an experience, no two experiences are exactly the same. Being relatively new to the game not only means the Big Band Experience has a fresh sound, but that the audience can hear that sound.
Tickets are on sale now.
