The Shaskeen Presents: Amigo the Devil with Andrew Sheppard
The Dark Hearts Tour - also featuring Mike Frazier and Will Ridge
Amigo The Devil is a labor of love and a genuine art. From humble beginnings and a multitude of influences, Amigo the Devil is the breath of fresh air that many listeners out there can benefit from. It’s only once in a great while that I discover music as refreshing and unique as Amigo the Devil. The triple threat of compelling lyrics, a chilling voice and the usage of a banjo proves to be a deadly combination and the recipe for success.
Andrew Sheppard Music grew up in the high desert plains of Hailey, Idaho. Over the last few years he has gone from the hustle and grind of LA, to the honky tonks of TN, through the heartland of America and back to his roots. Former frontman of the Gypsy River Haunts, Sheppard is making a name for himself as a solo-artist and bandleader. Looking to explore new sounds and develop his own style, Sheppard now finds himself surrounded by a talented backing band of like minded musicians. His music has been described as a cockeyed medley of soulful Country, honest Rock N' Roll, with an outlaw mentality. Sheppard has recently shared the stage with several major artists including: Josh Ritter, Willie Watson of Old Crow Medicine Show, Shooter Jennings, and Jason Isbell among others. Following up on his 2014 release of the EP “Trouble After Midnight”, Sheppard has put the final touches on his first full length release “Far From Here.” The album touches a deep vein of classic country rock spanning back to the days of the Grand ‘Ole Opry. It’s obvious to the listener that not only is Sheppard influenced by predecessors like Johnny Cash and the Tennesse Two, Neil Young, or contemporaries and fellow Idaho natives Mickie and the Motorcars and Reckless Kelly.

Rock + Soul Duo that's chock full of sing along pop melodies, lots of heart, & just the right amount of sass.
Fronted by charistmatic lead singer, Melanie who is also the band's drummer and plays a full kit standing up, bass parts on a keyboard with her drum stick, flute, and melodica too. Rich Libutti plays a road worn and well loved Rickenbacker through a pedal board full of vintage effects. He also pays bass with his feet. SIRSY is known for passionate performances that often include lots of stories from the road, laughs, and dance parties. It's a good time!
