This polished performer and her band were busy battling jetlag as they traveled halfway around the world not once, but twice to entertain the U.S. Armed Forces stationed in Japan. In addition to those successful international tours, was an eye opening and suspense-filled journey to the Balkans Region where the band was officially transported to various U.S. military camps in Kosovo and Macedonia for special concert performances at these locations, boosting the morale and spirits of the troops stationed in this dangerous and troubled part of the world.

Closer to home, SIMPLY SHANIA has had the honor of opening for such Country Music Greats as GEORGE JONES, TANYA TUCKER, ALABAMA, and TRISHA YEARWOOD. Additional past performances include the Grand Reopening Celebration at the Grand Central Terminal in New York City, the Fernwood Resort in Bushkill, PA, and countless outdoor concerts throughout the state of NJ at fairs and various local summer concert series.
Lead vocalist Valerie, does an excellent representation of Shania Twain vocally as well as visually; not only by capturing the vocal style of the country mega-star, but also by the meticulous duplicating of her stage costumes. Fans of all ages adore the SIMPLY SHANIA show and admire the talent and energy put forth by Valerie and her fellow band members. In true Shania style, the music is uniquely pop-country with a whole lot of attitude and a kickin’ rock edge. The band covers songs from all three of Shania’s platinum CDs (“Shania Twain”, “The Woman In Me”, and “Come on Over”). With such hits including the crowd favorites “You're Still the One”, “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” and “That Don't Impress Me Much” just to name a few. With the recent release of Shania’s new CD titled "UP!", debuting at #1 on the album charts, SIMPLY SHANIA has increased their repertoire and are ready to pay tribute once again to the leader of the current “Country Crossover” phenomenon — SHANIA TWAIN!
