The Shineys was born in 2015 during a conversation between two old college friends regarding reclaiming music after life circumstances had dulled our shine. They vowed to reclaim it and be “The Shineys”
They began playing farmer’s market’s in Omaha and eventually connected with the open mic scene and began to play around town. The Shineys have appeared at many venues around Omaha, Lincoln & southwest Iowa. They were nominated in the “Best Singer-Songwriter” category for the 2015-16 Omaha Arts & Entertainment Awards and performed at the ceremony alongside good friends Emily Ward & Aly Peeler. They were nominated “Best Pop” for the 2016-17 season.
