Shoot Down the Sun is playing on March 30th!

Meet The Band! 

Shoot Down the Sun was originally formed by Christopher Golab and Marisa Jenkins, who met at Ball State University. SDS was conceived for a music production class so that Chris and Marisa could release an EP as a project.  Michael and Chris grew up together, meeting at Holy Spirit Catholic School in Indianapolis. They also played together for five years in a band that they started in eighth grade called Secret Weapon. Marisa and Chris met Sam at Ball State through a mutual friend. The final addition to the band was Michael Shirley, whom Chris attended high school with. Marisa and Chris ran into him on their way from a band practice and asked him to play with them. You are now up to speed!

  • Electric Bass: Chris Golab

What are we up to?

Shoot Down the Sun is currently practicing every week and looking for new places to share our music. SDS makes an effort to keep up with social media on Facebook, Instagram, and Bandsintown. We released our first ever Christmas single in 2018 and we would love to make it a yearly tradition. We are also looking for ways to record our music so that we can release our first major work to all of the popular streaming platforms! Finally, we are always looking for new ways to enhance our sound and have fun! For more continuous updates, see our blog!
