“This distinguished man & his band is a bit unique on first listen. Eccentric in appearance & they take the basics from a varied musical crop of genres & shape it into an entertaining figure.” John Apice, Americana Highways on Shiyribs' Transit Damage, 2023
Shinyribs defies genres as a sonic melting pot of Texas blues, New Orleans R&B funk, horn-driven Memphis soul, country twang, border music, big band swing, and roots-rock. The Austin-based nine-piece supergroup is led by Kevin Russell, the charismatic frontman with colorful suits and extravagant shoes who continuously swaps out an electric guitar for a ukulele and never falls short of creating a cinematic experience with on-stage antics that often include him donning a light-up cloak or leading a conga line through the crowd.
They stop at The Shedd Tuesday, July 25 on tour in support of their new album, Transit Damage.
