The Shakers - A Whole Lotta Shakers!

These Shakers are not be confused with the '60s band from Uruguay. These Shakers (TONY SHAKER - Drums; EDDIE SHAKER- Guitar/vocals; MARTIN SHAKER - Bass guitar/vocals) come from Liverpool and are the true heirs of the Star Club-Era Beatles. 

Formed in 2005 by drummer Tony, these lads authentically recreate the look and the sound of those Liverpool days and Hamburg nights, when the original Mersey Sound was born.

The group’s musical repertoire is based around the early 60s British Merseybeat sound, as they believe that this is when beat music was at its most exciting so don’t expect anything past 1965! Their full-length vinyl LP/ CD ’A WHOLE LOTTA SHAKERS!’,  recorded at the famous Britannia Row studios in London is available on Soundflat Records and includes covers of classics like 'Soldier Of Love', 'Rock 'N' Roll Music' and 'Love Potion #9', as well as great self penned tunes. 

’A WHOLE LOTTA SHAKERS!’ is quite an enjoyable debut full length album and should definitely belong to your records collection if you dig bands like THE KAISERS or PETER BERRY and THE SHAKE SET. Maximum MerseyBeat, indeed!
