A CITY COUNTRY BAND
…Featuring musicians/vocalists who have toured with Billy Joel, Queen, Chaka Khan and other music greats!
Like sippin’ a moonshine martini at the end of a long hard day, New York City-based Shotgun Wedding blends urban sophistication with homegrown intoxication.
Perhaps the world’s first city-country band, Shotgun Wedding pays homage to classic country music, without cowboy hats or western wear. Raw, honest and from the heart, Shotgun Wedding takes a unique approach to a time-honored genre: firing off original songs that are at once down-home and downtown, including tunes about bartenders, broken hearts – even a Brooklyn Rag.
Shotgun Wedding infuses Dennis DelGaudio’s vocals and guitar pickin’ and Catherine Porter’s gorgeous voice with three other great musicians on boogie/stride piano, bass and drums. These music veterans have extraordinary industry credentials. Dennis has toured with Billy Joel and was in the Broadway smash hit musical Movin’ Out for its entire Broadway run and Catherine was the featured lead in Broadway’s “Next to Normal”, appeared with Michael Crawford in the London production of “The Music of Andrew Lloyd Weber”, starred in “Sunset Boulevard” with Hugh Jackman in Australia and toured with Queen, Chaka Khan and others.
Shotgun Wedding. It’s two-parts twang, an ounce of rock-n-roll and a dash of swing, all shook up with some of the best musicians and vocalists in the business to create a unique sound that mixes the best of small town and big city.
