Amy Lynn & the Gunshow / Shayna Steele
Show DescriptionThe vocal gymnastics Amy Lynn Zanetto can pull off in a mini-dress and stilettos would have Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner, and Mariah Carey on their feet by curtain call. As each of these women has done before her, Amy Lynn brings her own unique flair to the diva tradition, adding a quirky, down-to-earth humor to her frontwoman role that lands Amy Lynn and Gunshow in a league of their own.
The Gunshow, lead by lovebirds, Amy & Alex, has a 60's pop and soul sound, marked by powerhouse singers and infectious horn licks as especially fertile ground on which to showcase their combined talents. Together and apart they have played all around the world gracing the stage with Duffy, St. Vincent, Lucy Woodward, Yo La Tengo, Spoon, The Radio City Orchestra and many more. Just recently Amy & Alex's song "Missing You" was on the WE networks show "Big Easy Brides". They have been played on radio stations throughout the US, Canada, and Japan.
Given the Gunshow's standout showmanship and feel-good energy, it's no wonder that their performances at NYC's top venues, including Joe's Pub, Highline Ballroom, The Mercury Lounge, The Canal Room, and The Bell House, have met with glowing reviews. Better stay tuned: theyíll soon be tearing up a stage near you.
