Once upon a time, frontman/vocalist Jim "Cisco" Franciscus
was looking for a new band to play blues and R&B music after more than five years of fronting a successful local blues/rock act called Sonic Blues.
Coincidentally, a group of veteran musicians who met regularly to jam in a Murrysville area church were searching for a singer
to complete their lineup.
It took a Pittsburgh City Paper ad to bring them together
and in January 2008, Shot O' Soul was born!
Today, Shot O' Soul is one of Pittsburgh's most entertaining live bands, performing a wide variety of music from popular and classic rock to blues/R&B, Motown, and even a touch of funk and country.
Fronted by two powerhouse lead vocalists, Jim Franciscus and Jeannie Shook, Shot O' Soul has entertained thousands of people throughout the western
Pennsylvania and is THE band to see and hear live throughout the region!
