River City Beats | The Shaeyln Band
The Shaelyn Band is a Florida based band capable of shifting from classic soul blues and funk to rock. They are fronted by Shaelyn (aka Shae) Mulberry, a singer and poet who can wail like Joyce Kennedy, charm like Aretha Franklin, and soliloquize like Erykah Badu. With their highly energized live show, The Shaelyn Band is poised to take on the music industry. The band took shape in 2020, after meeting lead guitar player Erik Guess at an open-mic showcase in Jacksonville, Florida. The lineup that year featured musical director and drummer, Tim Mulberry, and bassist Greg Mullins. Within a couple of years, they knew they had something special. The band recently added Keys/Organist Roy Handy, Saxophonist Kip Maranto and Background Vocalists, Mark Barner and Riole Muziq.
