The Shining Dimes bring a fresh take to classic country music, leaving you feeling nostalgic and remembering what real country music is. Influenced by the greats like Patsy, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Dolly, The Everly Brothers, and Waylon Jennings, they’ll bring you back to another time. The Shining Dimes appeal to a wide age range: older generations remembering the music they grew up with, and young generations’ recent re-discovery of the magic of American country.
Bri, the frontwoman on lead vocals and rhythm guitar brings her fun energy to the stage drawing from her second generation country upbringing. You never know where her quirky, charming antics will take you during the show. Her husband Dylan holds down the low end on bass and singing backup with experience after attending Berkeley College of Music in Boston.
KC on lead guitar brings energetic licks and tasty texture to the band. When KC isn’t giving someone an American traditional tattoo, he’s probably writing a new song. Andrew is our man ticklin’ the ivories and resident multi-instrumentalist. When he’s not playing the keys, you can find him rippin’ a horn solo and rounding out the 3 part harmony. Did we mention KC and Andrew are brothers? In true country form, we’re lucky to have pedal steel aka the sad machine. The man behind the steel sits Jason. Don’t let his stoic cowboy demeanor fool you, this man has a heart of gold. His playing will leave you in a puddle on the dance floor. Last but certainly not least is the heartbeat of the band, Dayne, on drums. Owner and operator of the Firing Room recording studio, Dayne pushes the envelope in trying new, creative rhythms that aren’t always synonymous with country — an expert in his craft.
