Shaun Johnson




“Shaun Johnson splits the difference between the dulcet urbanity of Michael Bublé and the campy yowl of the Stray Cats’ Brian Setzer. He fronts a brassy octet he dubs Shaun Johnson’s Big Band Experience (he’s also the lead singer in Tonic Sol-fa). A retro nerd of Rat Pack vintage, his performances go for the gut in rousing fashion.”

– Star Tribune







“…Shaun leapt in with phenomenal energy and style! […] Every tune was a joy…!”

– Rochester Symphony Orchestra & Chorale







“Shaun’s performance is the highlight of our theatre season!”

– Ames Performing Arts Center






Emmy Award Winner!

Shaun Johnson and his Big Band Experience are a rare newcomer to traditional pop, fusing a big band spirit with an inventive edge that is at once more risky than Buble and more modern than Sinatra. Shaun, an Emmy Award-winning crooner and lead singer of the internationally known vocal group, Tonic Sol-Fa, indelibly stamps vocal jazz and swing with a contemporary punch. Delighting both traditionalists and newcomers, Shaun has emerged as an original voice in the world of American singers.
