Shipley's concert performed Sunday in Minden Park

It's time for the third annual Shipley Concert in Minden Park, today from 6-8:30 p.m. This follows the Douglas County Parks & Recreation Concert in Minden Park on Friday by De-ja-Blues.

Grab your chairs, munchies to share and bring your kids and friends to relax in the cool evening twilight. Lake Tahoe Entertainment presents the duo, Cherie and John Shipley in a benefit for the Unity Church of Today Music Ministry with a pass-the-hat suggested love offering of $10 and multiple CDs available.

John Shipley plays jazz on the piano and does conducting/arranging for Western Nevada Community College, the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra, Harrah's showrooms and other area venues. Cherie Shipley sings smooth sultry vocals in multiple genres of musical favorites.

The Shipleys are local musical artists originally from Reno. John Shipley began his professional pianist career at age 17 in the Sammy Davis Showroom of Harrah's Reno, and went on to be a founding member of the Grammy nominated jazz-fusion group, Hiroshima. He musically directs numerous casino shows in Reno, Tahoe and Las Vegas, as well as WNCC and other performing arts companies in the western U.S. Cherie is also a seasoned performer and feature vocalist, singing backup in hundreds of shows, clubs and benefits in Vegas, California and the Reno-Tahoe-Carson areas.

The Shipleys knew each other and occasionally worked together in the Reno music scene for many years before they reconnected at a Unity Church in Palm Springs. Married 15 years, they operate Shipley Music and Lake Tahoe Entertainment, producing music and other entertainment for concerts, shows, weddings, jingles, CDs, and connecting local and national recording artists with the events. Both have served on the board position and are active with the Music Ministry of Unity Church of Today in Minden.
