Shakedown At The Majestic was formed in New York City by guitarist Chris Vermillion and drummer Taylor Nimtz 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 NYC Emergenza Music Festival at Webster Hall. They were 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 recently relocated to Utah, and have begun playing shows with new guitarist Daniel Lu and bassist Archie Crisanto. They are currently working with legendary producer Steve Fisk (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Low, The Posies, Screaming Trees) to prepare their EP for release, due in early 2015.
