About Preston Shannon

A mainstay at B.B. King's Blues Club, the nexus of Memphis' Beale Street entertainment district, Preston Shannon is one of the finest contemporary blues artists in the country. He's won two Premier Player Awards and was named "Entertainer of the Year" for three years in a row by the Beale Street Merchants Association.

With several brilliant blues CDs, Preston is known world-wide as a first-rate urban bluesman. He embodies the sound and spirit of Beale Street, and he's better at connecting with a crowd than almost anyone in town. Whether he's playing a smoky blues club, a local wedding, or an international festival with 50,000 blues fans, Preston Shannon delivers true Memphis every time.

Preston can deliver a tight blues and R&B show with a 4-piece band, or he can add keyboards and horns for a big, soul sound.
