Story Behind Shoemaker Brothers "Sunshine Song," written by Dan Shoemaker, on House Blend TV Show with host Stephen K. Peeples. From the album On the Road, literally inspired from touring around the United States, the song is based on positive energy, hope, love and seeking the best from life. Dan wanted to inspire people to look towards the light and not the darkness.

Sam Shoemaker commented on filming the music video with a really good crew out at a the Calamigos Ranch in the Santa Monica Mountains and on the beaches of Malibu with some local girls from U.S. Santa Barbara. Stephen Peeoples noted that the video suited the song and got the message across.

During the interview segments yet to be turned into videos the subjects discussed were the Shoemaker's style of writing lyrics, a typical Shoemaker Brothers' concert experience and the story behind the song 5 am Birdcall, written by Sam Shoemaker. On their latest album, Reflections, each brother contributed three songs and those tunes, after their initial introduction, are then put through a kind of evolutionary Shoemaker band evolution that usually improves the tune. During concerts the boys switch instruments and duties for every song, with each one singing their own original songs as the other pick their respective instruments.

Loyal fans and musicians love the band and their gigs are well attended throughout Southern California. The Brothers draw large crowds at all the major venues and are booked and re-booked constantly. They have played Whiskey A Go Go, The Roxy, Canyon Club, World Fest, Camarillo Festival, Oak's Music Nights. They have also opened for major acts like Little Feet, Loggins and Messina, Los Lobos, Canned Heat, all this in one short year. For an unknown band just arrived in Los Angeles this kind of progress in such a short time is phenomenal.
