MARC LEE SHANNON Akron native and veteran studio and touring guitarist/multi-instrumentalist Marc Lee Shannon left home at 19 to attend the Guitar Institute in Hollywood, at the time when the school featured legendary teachers, clinicians, and the cream of the LA studio scene players. After 11 years of sessions and gigs with many top Alternative Country, Rock, and Soul Artists, he came back home to Ohio. He wound up playing with North East Ohio’s favorite son — Michael Stanley — and has been a member of his band since 1994. 23 years and 22 records later he is still making music on Electric and Acoustic Guitar, 12 String, Mandolin, and the Godin Inuk, with one of Ohio’s top drawing acts.
THE MICHAEL WEBER SHOW is an explosive, rock group centered around 20 year old guitar phenom, Michael Weber.
Michael has played out professionally since he was 7 years old. His love for music is evident in every note he produces. He has performed hundreds of shows with his band, various local bands, and national acts, including the Counting Crows when he was 9 and 12 years old and regularly with garage rock legends, The Shadows of Knight. He is also a student at Kent State University and owner and operator of Silver Swamp Recording Studio. In 2018, Weber won MTV's Amazingness television talent/variety show hosted by Rob Dyrdek.
The band's influences include Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Band, Big Star and many more icons. Their set list consists of original material and standards.
