Shawn Eiferman

Shawn has been performing and writing music for almost 30 years! He has spent his whole life surrounded by entertainment including an opera singer for a mother and a father who was a fitness pioneer (former Mr. America/Mr. Universe/Body Building Hall of Famer) who later did shows with Mae West and Debbie Reynolds. His father also preached health and nutrition in nationwide school assemblies and made television and film appearances for more than thirty years.

Shawn began playing guitar at the early age of nine growing up in Bellingham, Washington before he relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada where he currently resides and performs regularly as the house entertainment at Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo, The Park on Fremont, Boulevard Cocktail Company, several Stations Casino properties, the Commonwealth and numerous other Vegas hot spots. He recently returned from an unbelievable Winter in Vail, Colorado 

He has won a couple world-wide songwriting contests, had numerous songs placed in TV and Film, and won UNLV’s College Entertainer of the Year award two years in a row. In 1994, he won a Battle of the Bands competition by himself against eleven full-piece bands, been voted the Best Acoustic Guitar Player by Las Vegas CityLife Magazine, and nominated for Father of the Year 20 years in a row at Casa de Eiferman. 

Shawn currently rotates three Atlas Series Breedlove guitars. A beautiful black Revival, a big bold burst Revival, and a sexy Solo C350 with an amazing custom paint job by Tommy Vinici.

Shawn says repeatedly that his "Breedloves are the most reliable, best sounding, consistent, best playing guitars he's ever owned in a collection of over 35 from all different companies! Every time I put new strings on them...I fall in love all over again."
