R&B/Soul and Funk are what’s on the menu and folks don’t take well to a seated position when this 8-piece band hits the stage.
June 28 - Shakedown Combo & Tartan Terrors
Shakedown Combo – with the attitude that Rockabilly can be modern and contemporary, not simply a sound from past decades revived by cover bands whenever retro becomes fashionable. The band favours original material over reworking the old classics, however they don’t dismiss the original rockers, or the 1980s revivalists. Rockabilly fans will love the twanging guitar and slapping double bass that typify the genre, but the catchy upbeat songs and modern production invite wider appeal.
Tartan Terrors – are their own Celtic Invasion, mixing rock’s energy with traditional folklore, dance, and humor. With an arsenal featuring classic pipes and fiddle, driving drum tones, and signature guitar styles.
