Summer Sunset Concert Series features Shawn Brown Band 7/22

The Shawn Brown Band will perform at Sims Park (6431 Bank Street) from 7-8:30pm July 22 in the last of the Summer Concert Series, presented by The City of New Port Richey Parks and Recreation.

“Shawn began playing the piano at the young age of 3 years old and then became the organist, accompanying his mother for their church at 8 years old, which began his musical journey.  Through his Dear Sir or Madam, adolescent years he continued to play at his church until he moved to Tampa Florida.”

Shawn then began a career with multiple national entertainers, such as Percy Sledge, Al Green, Earth Wind and Fire, Clarence Carter, Little Milton, Rudy Raymore (Dolamite) , BB King, Keith Sweat, Roger and Zapp, Stephanie Mills, Alexander O’Neil, Eddy Money, and only to name a few.

Shawn is also known as one of the top Hammond organ players in the jazz community.  He was featured in the 2013 Killer B3 Movie. He is planning his inspirational CD for early next year and until then you can find Shawn still playing with the same passion and humility wherever his is guided!
