MEET THE BAND
Our musicians are at the heart of Florida country music. All of us take our jobs seriously and deliver on a professional level both on and off stage.
Drummer & Manager
Ryan has been playing the drums for almost 15 years. After gigging and recording for with a local rock band through college, he took a long break from playing shows. Eventually he rediscovered a love of country music and decided it was time to get back on stage. He helped Shawn form the Easy Posse in 2010.
Lead Vocals & Rhythm Guitar
Shawn has been singing professionally for almost 20 years. His acoustic guitar and unbeatable country vocals add that classic country sound and rhythm to an already amazing band. Shawn is also credited with the idea to form the Easy Posse.
Bass & Backup Vocals
Jon holds a Bachelor’s and Master’s in music from USF, and currently is music director at a local church. He’s played all over the world with grammy nominated acts as well as opened for names such as Lenny Kravitz and Guns N Roses. Jon has been a personal friend of the band for years and was our first choice when the bass position opened up.
Lead Guitar & Backup Vocals
Blake has been playing guitar for over 25 years in bands of all types – jazz, reggae, bluegrass and more. He’s a multi-instrument player but has a reputation as one of the best guitarist in the bay area. He watched the original Easy Posse lineup from the crowd and started to gain an appreciation for the unique guitar style of country music. Like Jon on bass, when a new guitarist was needed, Blake was our first choice.
Greg has been playing country fiddle for decades and, having opened for some of the greats like Charlie Daniels and Wynonna Judd, he’s got some great stories from the road. After having relocated from Nashville, Greg joined up with The Posse in 2012 and helps round off our country style. He can also be seen with other hot local acts as well as on the jumbotron, entertaining crowds at Tampa Bay Lightning home games.
Ron is a multi-instrumentalist, focusing on pedal steel and banjo with Easy Posse. His career includes playing with legends like Chuck Berry and George Jones. He helped produce country music artists for over a decade and was a staff writer for Nashville’s Peer Southern Publishing. Aside from playing with a couple great bands, Ron also owns a recording and teaching studio in the Venice, FL area.
We work with the very best in the industry. We are proud of our sponsors, who help us deliver the best experience possible.
We promise to always arrive on time, play as agreed, and and perform at our absolute best.
