The String Assassins are an acoustic power trio featuring local guitar gurus “Mangrove” Mark Shubert, Jay Kuchera, and Matt Gill. The group formed in February 2014 when they decided to get together and do something much different than the other projects they were involved with. The result has been a fast growing reputation as one of the area’s most exciting new bands. Every show results in the group continuing to add to their growing fan base – once folks get a listen, they are quickly hooked.
The group draws upon their various influences and styles (Rock, Punk, Funk, Bluegrass, and Flamenco) and seamlessly fuses them into a tasty concoction that one needs to see and hear to believe. In their short existence, the group has already secured several regular, recurring gigs at some of the Treasure Coast’s top entertainment venues, and were recently featured in Jupiter’s The Beacon newspaper. They are looking forward to a very busy schedule in 2016, and can’t wait to continue to push their very unique sound and style in even more directions.
