Shameless….and on the move!
The band Shameless is gaining a reputation….a reputation of bringing the party! With a solid list of regular gigs, Shameless is expanding its performance footprint and looking for venues in new areas to partner with. Formed in late 2011, the band has continued to morph into a performance powerhouse that understands that it takes a combination of key ingredients to be successful; strong set lists, good sound mixing, audience interaction and professionalism, both on the stage and off. “When people go out for the night to have some drinks and see a band, they want to be entertained, they want a good sound and songs that move them” says Andrew Bauer [guitar/vocals] “We understand the importance of having the right sound for each room and being able to adapt to the venue – and most importantly, making sure people have fun, no one wants to see a band that looks like they are at work!”.
Shameless understands the importance of the business dynamic. People want to go out and have fun: bar owners want to drive sales. “We never lose sight of the importance of the business side” Bauer says “Out front we play our hearts out and have fun with the audience – out back we load-in and out efficiently, start on time, play strategic sets geared towards the venue, promote shows and the establishments we play in – if the bars don’t do well, the bands don’t have places to play”. “To be a successful cover band, you have to be a musician, sound engineer, marketing person, PR person, business manager, stage and lighting expert – Shameless brings the full monty!
The success of the band is certainly no surprise when you consider the experience of the players, both musically and in life. “We are seasoned musicians that all shared one extremely important view: relationships and attitudes are the most important ingredient in a band, get that wrong and you are destined to fail before you begin” said Bauer “With 20+ years of experience, we understand how rare and hard it is to find a group of musicians that can connect musically, share vision, and just have fun with each other both on and off the stage – we’ve got that”.
The Band: Shameless is made up of Andrew Bauer [guitar/vocals], Brian Blanchard [percussion], Carrie Drake [vocals/percussion] and Ralph Smith [bass]. The band periodically features guest players.
