Hailing from Kokomo, Indiana, SHINY PENNY is an alternative rock/pop quad, who has shared the stage with acts such as Jane’s Addiction, Jon McLaughlin, Bon Jovi, Switchfoot, NEEDTOBREATHE, and Colony House, to name a few.
The band consists of Brad DiCarlo (guitar/bgv), Dean Schimmelpfennig (vocals/keys), Eric Hyman (bass), and Scott “Stix” Ayers (drums). Musically, the band successfully taps the power pop and alternative rock elements and gives us a sound that is unique, quirky and stands out from the crowd, recently being awarded “Best Local Pop Band” by Nuvo.net. The pop melodies combine with unrelenting rock energy and lyrics that fans can relate to. SHINY PENNY creates timeless music and unforgettable live shows, steadily expanding their audience across North America, and the entire world.
