Shaun Munday | Alex Rossi (Soul/Funk) $7
Monday, April 15 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Shaun Munday is a one-of-a kind talent. He blends soul-drenched vocals with show-stopping bass guitar technique. Shaun captures audiences with a full band sound and plays the bass better than most people play a guitar. He is a graduate of the Berklee School of Music in Boston, MA where he studied and performed with some of the greatest artists and educators in the industry including John Mayer, Esperanza Spalding, Matthew Garrison (Herbie Hancock), Antonio Sanchez (Pat Metheny) and Jetro Da Silva (Whitney Houston).
Shaun has shared the stage with Lalah Hathaway, Corinne Bailey Rae, Andra Day, Mary Wilson of The Supremes, blues legend Robert Cray, reggae royalty Aston Barrett and The Wailers (Bob Marley’s band), country music star Collin Raye, Devon Allman and Yonrico Scott of the Royal Southern Brotherhood. His overall music style is inspired by Donny Hathaway, Al Green and Marvin Gaye.
Shaun released his self-titled debut album in March 2017 to rave reviews. Bass Player Magazine said, “Munday proves that he’s going to be a bass heavyweight, as his flawless slap work and his melodically challenging lines are only ever outshined by his buttery crooning.”
Alex Rossi is known for his high-energy performance teasing the ears with a mash-up of blues and rock inspired guitar licks. He combines the soul of Motown, the lyrical play of Hip Hop, and the psychedelic rock of Jimi Hendrix, into an original sound that defies genres.
A true product of the Minneapolis Sound, Alex was born and raised in the Twin Cities of Minnesota. Although a nationally recognized songwriter, and accomplished guitar player, its his soulful vocals that people seem to identify with him the most. He is also an original cast member and co-creator of the Rhythmic Circus, an award-winning musical production with Broadway and international acclaim.
He has shared the stage with notable artists including George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Chicago, Steve Miller Band, Johnny Lang, Eric Hutchinson, Jimmie Vaughan, Blues Traveler, The Funk Brothers, Susan Tedeschi, Los Lonely Boys, Trombone Shorty & New Orleans Ave and many others. He has been honored to perform for the troops on multiple occasions, across the globe. Recently featured on Dana White’s show ‘Looking for a Fight’
