Rolling Stone:
This alt-country spitfire can break your heart one moment and shank you with her raw honesty the next, thanks to her X-meets-Lucinda sonic mash-ups.

Chicago Reader:
“rockabilly sass, concise power pop, and even a dash of soul”

npr.org :
“influences as far-reaching as Mahalia Jackson, Sid Vicious and Merle Haggard”

from Austin, Texas
Shinyribs

Lafayette Brewing Company
622 Main Street
Lafayette, Indiana

Tickets go on sale October 2nd!

Houston Press:
Incredibly entertaining! A veteran Austin-based musician and co-founder of The Gourds, Kevin Russell did some channeling of his own. His showmanship recalled James Brown, enhancing his super-soulful voice and his band's wicked expertise.

No Depression Magazine:
A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip-shaking, belly-laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on, kissed on by this world-class band.

Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit cooperative that brings great music to Lafayette. Please consider becoming a dues-paying Friend of Bob

2016 dues are $10, though if you 'd like to donate more, that would be great. (Since we are a registered 501 [c][3] organization, donations above the $10 level can be tax-deductible.) Before each show, we e-mail a newsletter giving background information -- membership dues pay for the printing of posters and e-mailing of these newsletters. Plus, our affordable admission prices in small venues sometimes fail to cover expenses, so membership contributions provide us with a safety net for such occasions. Friends of Bob is a not-for-profit all-volunteer organization that works to bring outstanding live music to Lafayette. A membership form can be found by clicking on the How Can You Help button at the top of this page.

Please support this cooperative effort to bring fine music to Lafayette.
Friends of Bob -
bringing great music to small venues, for early shows at affordable prices.
