"Shannon Brown pursues her career as a country singer and does it well, but as a dead-pan comedienne she could hold her own with most stand-ups in town. A West Virginia charmer, Brown's singing "Junk Food Junkie" and "Jolene" left one hungry for more."
~ Peter Leavy, Cabaret Scenes


"Shannon delivered the songs with charm, vivacity, and a warm, clear voice that was perfectly suited to the material! Moonshine Martinis is a breath of fresh air in the cabaret world and makes for a great night out!"
~ Jenna Esposito, BroadwayWorld



ABOUT MOONSHINE MARTINIS:

HI FOLKS:

My new band, TRAILER RADIO, is ready-n-raring to go and we've got performances scheduled around the city. Trailer Radio is quite different from "Moonshine Martinis" as we're not limiting ourselves to only country music, but rather we include some rock and blues tunes, too. Also, we're doing some original songs as well as select covers. The group is made up of some truly amazing musicians (far fancier than I) and we're having a big ol' blast!

So, "Moonshine Martinis" is on hiatus while I focus my efforts on Trailer Radio. Visit us at www.trailerradio.com for performance dates, song clips and other details. I look forward to seeing you at a gig soon!

Shannon
