The Sound
Whatever the mood strikes. You’ll see Don in different configurations throughout the Festival. You might hear a healthy dose of Django inspired gypsy jazz to New Orleans funk and Wes Montgomery style swinging. When Don takes the stage, you will see a true craftsman and music lover.

Local Cape May County guitarist who embodies the ideals of a serious craftsman, Exit Zero Jazz welcomes Don Shough in his debut Fest appearance. Back in the 80’s, Don traveled to Los Angeles, living out his dream of becoming a rock guitar monster. On his way back to Cape May, Don took a three -year detour in Nashville where he immersed himself in the thriving country scene. After stints touring with country music sensation Doug Stone, Don returned to Cape May County more than a decade ago and has been a stalwart on the music scene since. He’s adept in all guitar styles – jazz, fusion, hints of country – and his performances at Exit Zero will be full of engaging surprises and always swinging.
