For those of you that don’t know, a Shovelhead is a Harley Davidson style engine, however we don't want to confuse anyone as we do spell our name differently than the infamous motorcycle company.
The meaning of Shuvlhed is about a person that has been beaten down all their life, but even in the end , never gave up hope! It is our goal to instill a little bit of Shuvlhed in everyone that gets the chance to see our show. Our hope is that when you leave a Shuvlhed show , you will have felt like you've been empowered and we hope you leave feeling energized! At that point we feel we've met our goal and you will have been forever Shultized! Lucky You!!
