Shakedown At The Majestic formed in New York City with the goal of bringing catchy, danceable, stick-in-your head songs and fun, energetic performances to NYC's music scene. SATM's influences include early rock n' roll, doo-wop, the Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Zombies, Weezer, The Hives, and the Pixies. Their signature style involves tightly woven harmonies and interweaving vocal melodies, drawing from rock and pop's early years but delivering something altogether fresh. At once nostalgic and fiercely original. In their short time as a band, SATM has played shows in some of the best venues in NYC, developed a devoted following, and played the finals of the 2009 NYC Emergenza Music Festival at Webster Hall. They recorded a demo in early 2010, engineered by Luke Rathborne. Recently, they have been a mainstay of the monthly "Hipster Demolition Night" held at Public Assembly in Williamsburg, a showcase for NYC's best up-and-coming powerpop bands. They also headlined Liahonaroo, a music festival in Nashiville, Tennessee in 2012. They will be releasing their upcoming EP "Run For Your Life" in August of 2014.
