A new generation of big band music, born of rebellion, continues to honor the style and evolution of the genre that Sinatra immortalized. The Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience is led by Emmy-winning singer/ songwriter Shaun Johnson, who has sold nearly two million albums as part of the nationally- known vocal group, Tonic Sol-fa. The group has toured with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, and New Kids on the Block. Few acts can channel Sinatra as Shaun Johnson softly croons about lost love, inhabits Citizen Cope (Clarence Greenwood) as he belts one out, and then segues into the theme from “Spiderman” without any indication that these musicians, these eras, and these styles were ever anything but destined to go together. The sound of the Shaun Johnson Big Band Experience is centered on innovation to ensure that, while each performance is an experience their audiences won’t soon forget, no two experiences are the same.
