Amy Lynn & The Gunshow
Amy Lynn & The Gunshow is a seven-piece machine that blows glitter all over the traditional memphis-motown soul/rock style. At the controls is Amy Lynn, a vocal powerhouse whose unique flair of quirky, down-to-earth humor countervails against the serious musicianship of The Gunshow’s team of bari sax, tenor sax, trumpet, keys, bass, and drums. Both together and apart, members of The Gunshow draw on a range of experience playing for acts such as Roberta Flack, Spoon, Bette Midler, Red Baraat, St. Vincent, The National, Yo La Tengo, Loser’s Lounge, Duffy, Antibalas, and the Radio City Orchestra.

Recently, Amy Lynn & The Gunshow has delivered performances all throughout the North-East. Highlights include two sold out shows at the Rochester International Jazz Festival, the Out and About Pride Event at Six Flags, as well as performances New York City venues such as Joe’ s Pub, Rockwood Music Hall, Cutting Room, and the CMJ Music Marathon.
