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, and as part of an acoustic duo (The HappyGoLuckys) with my wife, Mj.

We're grateful for long-term regular gigs at a couple venues in Sarasota:

• Solo – every Monday, 6p–10p at Gilligan’s Island Bar on Siesta Key

• HappyGoLuckys – 2 Fridays/mth, 6p–10p at Cha Cha Coconuts on St. Armands Cir

• Solo – most Sundays (not all), 1p-5p or 5:30p-9:30p at The Parrot Patio Bar and Grill on Webber & Beneva.

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.
