The Paul Shearer Band To Play
The New Martinsville Moose and Miller Light present The Paul Shearer Band Nov. 28 at 8:30 p.m. at the New Martinsville Moose Lodge. Between the cross roads of country and southern rock there stands Paul Shearer. With his high-energy live performances and creative song writing, The Paul Shearer Band is sure to please audiences of all ages.
Shearer’s previous album, Empty Bottles and Broken Hearts, featuring songs such as “Modern Day Life,” “Hard to be a Man,” and “Missing You” ,was recently featured on Eagle 107.5 Loud and Local and WHAW 980, as well as WQBE 97.5 FM Charleston, just to name a few.
Shearer and crew have been working on his latest album, Can You Hear Me Now, which will be the performer’s first live album scheduled to be out later this winter.
Through the years Shearer’s group has worked very closely with Easter Seals located on National Road in Wheeling and is a very proud supporter of the organization. They perform every year for their Easter Seal’s Telethon and many benefit poker runs.
When Shearer was asked why he supports Easter Seals so much he replied, “My heart goes out to the children and their families, and to the Easter Seals staff; they are a hard-working group.” He also went on to say, “I don’t claim to be the world’s best singer or the next Travis Tritt, but if our performing on that stage raises money to help those families and the kids, then I would be honored to do it every year.”
The Paul Shearer Band is diverse with so many different influences that it is hard to say what category they are in. The combination of drummer Seath Bell’s style of funk and jazz, bass player Doug Blair’s style of old school rock ‘n roll; and Paul Shearer’s bluesy southern style are sure to make you a fan. In addition, The Paul Shearer Band is also sponsored by McCain Distributing with Miller Light.
