Shannon Nelson (bass) started his performing life as a 5 year old singing loudly for everyone at a church potluck when he really was supposed to be eating. From there he spent time in several choirs, while also dabbling with piano, violin, and kazoo. He found success with the bass guitar later in life and has been entertaining his family and friends with loud low frequency noises ever since. He has recently been seen in rock&roll groups and blues jams, a couple of swing orchestras and jazz quartets, and a few gigs with a Sinatra impersonator. Shannon supports his artistic habits as a software engineer for AMD, and thanks his ever patient wife for her love and support.
