The vocal gymnastics Amy Lynn Zanetto can pull off in a mini-dress and stilettos would have Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and Mariah Carey on their feet by curtain call. As each of these women has done before her, Amy Lynn brings her own unique flair to the diva tradition, adding a quirky, down-to-earth humor to her front-woman role that lands Amy Lynn and Gunshow in a league of their own.
The Gunshow, lead by lovebirds Amy and Alex, has a 60s pop and soul sound marked by powerhouse singers and infectious horn licks. Together and apart, they have played all around the world, gracing the stage with Duffy, St. Vincent, Lucy Woodward, Yo La Tengo, Spoon, The Radio City Orchestra and many more.
