The Shake
Keeping music real

Based in South Florida this trio burst onto the scene with a reckless abandon. Borrowing from many sides of the genre spectrum The Shake take Reggae and Pop Punk and cram it together with elements of prog rock and metal to satisfy ears of all. Compared to such bands as Alkaline Trio and Rx Bandits, The Shake take influence from artists all the way from Stick figure to Slipknot.

With hard hitting drums to mellow soulful basslines and rounded out with thought provoking lyrics and vocal melodies, The Shake is a one stop shop. The boys are dedicated to the refusal of contouring their sound to anyone but themselves. The songs are not for everyone, but every song is for someone. And the band prides themselves on running gambit of emotions in their music.
