What is 'Shine ?


...or better yet, who is 'SHINE?

One of Wilmington’s most popular party bands, Shine, plays anything and everything from classic covers to snappy originals. Featuring Billy Barwick (lead singer, guitar, harmonica), Davis Canady (vocals, bass, mandolin), Bryan Harrell (lead guitar), and Jeff Hunnicutt (drums/percussion), this quartet played the main stage during the ‘09 and '10 Riverfest, Wilmington Oktoberfest 2010, along with other local and regional acts. Shine was also a featured artist on WHQR’s Soup To Nuts Live. They were the May 2009 cover story in Wilmington’s own BEAT Magazine and they were also the featured band  at the 2010 Azalea Festival Garden Party After Party.
