What to Expect
SHADES OF GRAY is a musical group of mature women who can offer a full band sound or an acoustic style music platform with a sweet blend of vocal harmonies. We can be interactive with the audience with the style of music that makes the audience feel comfortable and want to sing along to the memories of the tunes from their past. Most of our music is from the 60’s and 70’s with a mix of our originals that are tastefully performed. We are a fun group!
