Steeped in the tradition of the masters but forging ahead with a style all its own, “Shannon Gunn and the Bullettes” is the new all-star, all-women jazz ensemble based out of the D.C. area. Laid back but hard swinging, the Bullettes bring all generations together to enjoy a dynamite performance.
The Bullettes began as a “dream” of Shannon Gunn, trombone player and graduate of the George Mason University Masters in Jazz Studies program. Their first CD release, a five song EP, was the product of a successful Kickstarter campaign. Since then, the Bullettes have released three additional EPs and continue to wow audiences and perform both swing, originals, and straight ahead jazz charts for audiences young and old.
The Bullettes are a musical organization that uplifts women in jazz, creates networking opportunities, and provides a positive role model for aspiring jazz musicians in the DC area. They are available as a full sixteen piece big band, an octet, a septet including singer, quintet, or duo/trio for smaller venues. The Bullettes are available for concerts, master classes, and educational performances.
