Los Shimmy Shakers / Bio

Makin' super slinky sexy shimmy shakin' good tunes to shake, bump and grind your rump to. Instrumental little dittys to titillate and arouse you. Caution may cause clothing to mysteriously loosen, fall off or instigate warm fuzzy feelings all over.

Here is what Mike LaVella Editor of Gearhead Magazine says about Los Shimmy Shakers.

"From back in the days of jump blues greats packin’ the nightclubs of Harlem, to the long hot nights of Sam Butera wailin’ sax at Prima’s 500 Club in ol’ New Orleans, these performers -–and every other hard working combo that ever lit up a juke joint from the Borscht Belt to the Chitlin Circuit– provided patrons one very important service: They got their rumps shakin’! Fast forward to this yet unnamed decade of decadence and meet Los Shimmy Shakers, the harmonious Bay Area quartet hell-bent on delivering that same quatilty of ass quiverin’ and quakin’ that only a band of brave (and/or intoxicated) souls living on a fault line can!

With riffs that can only be described as “intoxicating,” these top-notch, tuxedoed troubadours are truly the champagne of bands. Ah, but that’s only half the story! Remembering that “show business” is all about “The Show,” the Los Shimmy Shakers experience is as easy on the eyes as it is on your ears. Shortly into their performance, a throng of tempestuous, torrid and terrific burlesque dancers take the stage! With their arrival, a sort of perfumed ether spreads throughout the crowd, enchanting even those that have been dead from the waist down for decades. Just how steamy does it get? One recent survivor was quoted as saying, “You want to whistle but you can’t, cause they take your breath away!” The young ladies exquisite architecture provides the perfect addendum to the saucy, provocative sounds Los Shimmy Shakers are laying down. They invite you to visit a time when a knowing wink and a jungle beat went hand in hand, miss them at your own risk!"
