June 5th @ Gov’s in Byfield, MA, 8pm

Yes—my childhood dreams come true—I’m singing back up for a ‘60s girl group! I AM A SHAYLETTE!

Shayla Edmonds’ band consists of New York’s finest musicians on keyboard, bass, drums and sax. Two back-up girls (The Shaylettes) join the R & B band providing amazing harmonies fulfilling the soulful sound of the 60’s to contemporary music. Shayla began as a songwriter, co-writing a song for Betty Wright (of Clean-Up Woman fame), soloed with Lionel Hampton, sang back up for Fred Schneider (of B-52’s) opened in Paris for Sydney Youngblood, and toured with a Marvelettes group singing lead and background. If you’re in Boston or feel like a road trip
