About Us

Who We Are

The Shaun Murphy Band is comprised of a team of music professionals who have been playing for more decades than we care to count.

Each of us has taken our our journey but we all share one common trait – our passion for music. For us, it’s not about fame or fortune – it’s about the experiences. Not just our past experiences, but also the new experiences we share each time we get on stage.

The traveling, meeting fans and playing with other music legends is all part of these experiences. We wouldn’t trade any of it for anything. We always said that we’d keep playing as long we find the experiences to be fun and fulfilling.

Please come out to one of our performances. Each show has its own vibe, much of which comes from the audiences.

We hope to see you soon.

John Marcus


I knew I wanted to play music for a living when I saw the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show in 1964 and I began playing guitar in elementary school.

My love affair with bass started at age 14.

I played R&R for years with Miami-based band Fantasy. I then joined the Hotgrass band , Heartbreak Mountain, in 1980.

Moved to Nashville in early ‘84. Wound up touring with Tanya Tucker, The Remingtons and was a Dancehall Doctor with Tim McGraw for 21 years. Started freelancing in 2011 and eventually became a proud member of the Shaun Murphy Band.


Tommy Stillwell


With credits on over thirty CD releases -including in Film and Television -Tommy has been entertaining audiences in the U.S. and abroad for more than forty years with the electrifying presence that can only come from his passion and dedication to the art.

“His guitar can sweep you up and make you feel as though you have been set down in the deep South on a hot Summer night, where the air hangs heavy and the sweat rolls freely. Then, like a breath of fresh air, he will squeeze notes out of his guitar that are so soft and sweet, they seem to shimmer like a full moon on the Gulf Of Mexico”.

Touring dates opening for: B.B. King, Johnny Winter, Buddy Guy, Fabulous Thunderbirds, & many more.
Touring Guitarist with:
* The Shaun Murphy Band
* The Beat Daddys
* Tommy Stillwell's “Serious Business”
* Bobby Clark

Anthony Saddic


Having played with the likes of Johnny Neel, Wayne Newton, and Riders in the Sky, a songwriter in his own right, classically-trained but rock-and-roll-brained keyboardist, Anthony Saddic, brings his vivacious playing style, love of music, big smile, and dancing head of curly hair to every performance.

With a diverse menagerie of influences like Ray Charles, Floyd Kramer, Stevie Wonder, and Herbie Hancock, Anthony’s style of playing is hard to pigeonhole, but he has found a fitting home rocking out onstage with the Shaun Murphy Band.

Maybe you’ve seen him on the Grand Ole Opry or Good Morning America? Or maybe you’ve seen him as the newest member of Shaun’s Band at your favorite blues festival! Or maybe you haven’t seen them yet… What are you waiting for??
