Lyn Shepard is Country Strong

The Lyn Shepard Band plays top 40 country hits and some old-time classics of well known artists that represents the best story-telling music in the world. It is our purpose to perform this great music "Live and Local", in the tradition of all the great artists that created it and to whom we are all indebted.  Whether it be dining entertainment, line dancing, two stepping, cowboy cha cha, waltz, or swing dancing, we'll keep the audience on their feet.

For more than a decade, The Lyn Shepard Band has been playing in Southern California at festivals, fund raisers, military events, fairgrounds, horse races, as well as private and corporate events.  Lyn started out as a 90 percent military band providing entertainment for organizations such as  Fleet Week San Diego , Toys For Tots and various military functions.  Lyn has always been focused on making our music bigger than just the songs.  Throughout Lyn's musical career, she supports, honors and respects our military and veterans while bringing joy to both them and  their families, especially while their loved ones are away on tour of duty, right down to the love and respect for those that gave their lives and our Wounded Warriors and their families who are trying to rebuild their lives! 

Lyn always has a great time with the crowd, delivering crowd-pleasing performances.  When performing, she likes to engage the audience, so they feel part of the show, too!  Lyn grew up in Kettle Kentucky and sings with a natural country accent, incredible range, and southern charm – teamed with amazingly talented musicians - have quickly made the Lyn Shepard Band one of the most sought after country bands in Southern Cal.  The group creates a landscape of story-driven country, with a touch of bluegrass and echoing tones of fueled southern rock guitars.  Lyn offers a graceful blend of new and old country representing the Nashville sound!
