Shannon and the Clams

Quirky bay area band comes to St. Augustine

Shannon and the Clams is not a ‘run-of-the-mill’ band. They are out of this world, distinctive and gifted characters. Shannon Shaw works her magic on bass and vocals, Cody Blanchard gives us his all on guitar and vocals and Ian Amberson keeps the beat going on drums and back-up vocals.

This band from Oakland, Calif. wants their fans to be inspired to let go of trying to be cool and, as Blanchard said, “have as much stupid, wild and embarrassing fun as we do.”

Blanchard considers their genre to be mutant mummy oldies, while Shannon sees it as weird oldies and mischief music. Either way, this band rocks the house all over the country.
