Finish Line Festival

Festival

Shinyribs defies genres as a sonic melting pot of Texas Blues, New Orleans R&B funk, horn- driven Memphis Soul, country twang, border music, big band swing, and roots-rock. The Austin-based nine-piece (sometimes 10-piece) supergroup is led by Kevin Russell, the charismatic frontman with colorful suits and extravagant shoes who continuously swaps out an electric guitar for a ukulele and never falls short of creating a cinematic experience with on- stage antics that often include him donning a light-up cloak or leading a conga line through the crowd.

 

Shinyribs was named Best Austin Band at the Austin Chronicle’s Austin Music Awards in both 2017 and 2018. They have also been awarded Album of the Year for I Got Your Medicine (2017) and Best 2020- Themed Song for “Stay Home” (2020).
