GREG SHINN

Bass guitar and  harmony vocals


Greg is the most recent addition to HEAD RUSH. He has come a long way since he cut his teeth in a hair band in the 80’s (in more ways than one!) After playing in Paper Tiger and Elixir in his home state of Pennsylvania, Greg’s work life (most recently away from home half of every month aboard boats) made band membership a challenge – but SHINNBAD (the sailor) has come ashore, and is thrilled to get back into making people happy with music. Greg uses a variety of gear, but mainly likes to experiment to create his own sound. He’ll use his fingers, a pick, funk style, or just banging his bass with his hands to drive a groove that will get everybody out of their seats. His musical influences include John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), John Entwistle (The Who), and Geddy Lee (RUSH), and dreams of playing like Victor Wooten (Béla Fleck and the Flecktones). You gotta hear this guy!
