TUESDAY 8TH MAY 2018

£12.00

Over 18s Only

The Legendary Shack Shakers’ hell-for-leather roadshow has earned quite a name for itself with its unique brand of Southern Gothic and swampy "hillbilly blues" that is all-at-once irreverent, lyrical, dangerous, and fun. Led by their charismatic, rail-thin frontman and blues-harpist JD Wilkes, the Shack Shakers are a four-man wrecking crew from the South whose explosive interpretations of swamp blues, rock n' roll and hillbilly music have made fans, critics and legions of potential converts into true believers.



On stage, JD has been compared to the likes of Iggy Pop, David Byrne, and Jerry Lee Lewis. Jello Biafra called JD “the last great Rock and Roll frontman.”



News of the World [so you just know it must be true] called the Shack Shakers "The maddest, baddest, most outrageous band in America.. a rockabilly version of the Sex Pistols."
