Shannon Gunn is hailed by the Washington City Paper  as “D.C.’s Best Trombonist 2015” and the DistrictNow Blog as “Best  Trombonist 2017,”  DC based Shannon Gunn is known for her exceptional  tone and her grandiose project-du-jour. She released “Gunn’s Ablazin,”  her freshman solo project, in August 2019 to critical acclaim.

Her  organ trio, Firebird, was named “DC’s Best Small Ensemble 2016” by the  Washington City Paper. She has performed at the DC Jazz Festival, the  Kennedy Center, Castleton Theatre House, Washington Women in Jazz  Festival, Takoma Park Jazz Festival, National Jazz Workshop, Bohemian  Caverns, Mid Atlantic Jazz Fest, Levine Jazz Fest, and many other venues  across DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Shannon plays a vintage Bach 16M New  York model with lightweight slide.

Shannon actively uses her  music for social justice causes. In 2015 she co-founded, with local  non-profit CapitalBop, the Jazz and Freedom Festival, which has in turn  raised funds and support for non-profits such as Empower DC, Black Lives  Matter DMV, WPFW-FM, the Capitol Hill Jazz Foundation, and ICE Out of  DC.

She is volunteer Program Manager of non-profit Jazz4Justice,  which creates collaborative partnerships between the legal community and  music community to raise funds for Legal Aid and jazz studies. In 2019,  she started Jazz Girls Day DC to empower young women to pursue jazz  without boundaries from gender. She is currently the Director of the  Jazz Ensemble at Northern Virginia Community College and is endorsed by  Conn-Selmer.
