DSO is proud to announce that Banks & Shane will be the featured artists performing with DSO on the Summer Pops concert July 18, 2014. For forty years now, Banks Burgess, Paul Shane, and their fabulous band have brought folks in Atlanta the best entertainment the town has ever seen. Their high-spirited renditions of old-time rock n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, and country are known for bringing capacity crowds to their feet! It’s high-energy good-time music, spiced with a healthy dose of the good-natured wit and patter that Banks and Paul have fine-tuned on their tours across the U.S. and around the world.
Banks & Shane has performed in almost every venue imaginable. The band is a legend in the ski resorts of Colorado. They have traveled to London, Munich, Frankfurt, and Amsterdam, representing The State of Georgia and The Atlanta Convention & Visitor’s `Bureau. In Atlanta, they have performed as headliners at Chastain Park, Symphony Hall, and the Fox Theater. In the summer of 2006, the band appeared as co-headliners with comedian Jeff Foxworthy in a sold-out concert at Lake Lanier Islands which benefited two of Atlanta’s most-loved children’s charities, Camp Sunshine and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
