Peter Shea and Juliet Dunn are the Shea (pronounced 'Shay') D Duo. Together their sound is a cocktail of jazz, pop and soul enriched by various percussive instruments. Their love for music shines through in every performance.


Peter Shea graduated from the University of Toronto with a degree in jazz performance and composition and has been performing as a drummer, pianist and vocalist for over 20 years. He has played many prestigious jazz festivals, Montreal, Toronto etc., as well as playing for musical theatre productions such as The Jersey Boys, Tony and Tina's Wedding and more. He has been performing with his soul mate and musical partner, Juliet Dunn, for 9 years.


Juliet Dunn is both an actress and singer and came to the Niagara Peninsula to perform and sing at the Shaw Festival Theatre. Her background ranges from popular music to jazz and she obtained most of her vocal training in Paris, France where she resided for 13 years. Her self-named Juliet Dunn Quintet has performed at many jazz festivals in Canada and was the winner of the Niagara Music Awards, 2009 Jazz Group of the Year. In 2011 her and Shea’s band:  Le Trio Parisien feat Juliet Dunn brought home the same award.  Juliet hosted her own radio show:  ‘Sunrise’ on Canada’s premier jazz station, Jazz FM91 from 2011 - 2014 and is currently focussing the majority of her time on the jazz festival she co-created with Peter:  The TD Niagara Jazz Festival.  The festival is now going into its 3rd year.


The Shea D Duo have been performing together since 2007 in the Niagara Region, at numerous venues and festivals, as well as all over the globe. Previous contracts include Brazil, Hong Kong, Morocco Asia, the Middle East, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, French Polynesia and the Caribbean.


Dunn and Shea also run a popular jazz series in their home town of St. Catharines called the Twilight Jazz Series.  They started the series back in 2011 with the goal of bringing together jazz musicians in the Niagara community as well as hoping to enhance the current ‘jazz scene’ in the region. The Twilight Jazz Series has become a ‘hang’ and ‘date night’ for many and a great spot to hear phenomenal jazz music. It runs from Oct - July and then makes room for the TD Niagara Jazz Festival.  Dunn and Shea are true believers of the art of jazz and believe that the Niagara Region has a plethora of fine musicians to offer. 


Peter and Juliet also donate their time regularly to Hospice Niagara with afternoon performances, and at other local organizations and charities such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Gillian's Place, the Terry Fox Foundation, Heart Niagara and many more. They are happy to give back to such a wonderful community and are proud to call Niagara their home.
