The Band

Formed in 2013, Shotguns and Violins has quickly become Michigan's number one country band.

Mark and Ryan first met while recording their albums in the same studio. "I would stick around after my session just to hear what else was being done. I heard Ryan and thought....we could melt faces!" (Mark). The electric connection soon developed in to an unbreakable relationship.

"I just want to play music that nobody else plays and that gets people dancing"


An idea that Mark and Ryan have taken to a whole new level. Constantly updating their song list, Shotguns and Violins cannot be touched when it comes to staying current. If you're looking for a band that makes the party, look no further.
