SHENK MUSIC, LLC
My name is Rodney Shenk. My wife, Mj, and I have been professional musicians for better than 30 years.
Just a brief history: In the late 80s and the 90s, I co-founded two regionally successful alternative pop bands, The Sharks and 606. We released three CDs of original material and drew record crowds in the greater Sarasota and Tampa areas.
We eventually said goodbye to a consistent full-band schedule, but I still play several nights a week as an acoustic solo act, and as part of two duo acts — one with my wife (TheHappyGoLuckys), and one with Myron Miller (The Retro Duo).
I’m grateful for long-term regular gigs at a couple venues:
• Mondays, 6p–10p at Gilligan’s Island Bar on Siesta Key
• Thursdays, 6p–10p at Cha Cha Coconuts on St. Armands Cir
• 1st Friday of the month, 6:30p-10:30p at Irish 31 on US41 & Bee Ridge
I also play frequent Sundays at The Parrot Patio Bar and Grill on Webber & Beneva in Sarasota.
Check my personal Facebook page for updated weekly gig schedules, or email me and ask. And do me a favor — if you come out, and you know me from Shenk Seamless Gutters, let me know where I know you from. I’m sure I’ll recognize you, but I probably won’t be able to figure out why.
