Billy Shannon - Vocals and Guitars - 2021 to present

On 1st December 2021, it was announced that Billy Shannon was to join Showaddywaddy as a guitarist and second lead vocalist to Andy Pelos.

On joining the band, Billy said: "It is a dream come true to be joining the Showaddywaddy family. I have been surrounded by their music from a very early age and soon became the youngest teddy boy in town, being carted along to my father's gigs in the pubs and clubs donning a make-shift drape jacket and cardboard guitar. I bought my first proper teddy boy suit at the age of 12 but I still occasionally try to get a tune out of the cardboard guitar (haha). It's obviously a very exciting time for the band, with the 50th anniversary nearly upon us and I'm going to give it my all, along with the lads and the fantastic support of the loyal fans, to keep the Showaddywaddy legacy alive and kicking forever - it is an absolute privilege to be a part of the world's greatest rock 'n' roll band!".
