Steeped in the tradition of the masters but forging ahead with a style all its own, “Shannon Gunn and the Bullettes” is an all-women jazz ensemble based out of the DC area. Laid back but hard swinging, the Bullettes bring all generations together to enjoy a dynamite performance.

The Bullettes began as a dream of Shannon Gunn, trombone player and graduate of the George Mason University Masters in Jazz Studies program. Their first CD release, a five song EP, was the product of a successful Kickstarter campaign. Since then, the Bullettes have released three additional albums and continue to wow audiences and perform both swing, originals, and straight ahead jazz charts for audiences young and old.

The Bullettes are a musical organization that uplifts women in jazz, creates networking opportunities, and provides a positive role model for aspiring jazz musicians in the DC area.
