Shak Nasti / Bio

Orlando's own eclectic band Shak Nasti has been stirring the pot since their inception back in 2004. The group delves into several genres including funk, rock, reggae, and drum'n'bass, shaping the mix into an original, organic sound that can be felt as well as heard. The band infuses a nasty rhythmic bottom with a melodic sense on top. Dance music with depth!

Their residency at downtown Orlando's Tanquerays has produced several sit ins by well known musicians including Jeff Coffin, the fellas from Soulive, and the pedal steel genius of Roosevelt Collier of the Lee Boys. You never know who is going to stop by.

Playing up and down the east coast, Shak Nasti has shared the stage with great acts like The Lee Boys, The Codetalkers, KDTU, MMW, Dumpstaphunk, Dead Kenny G's, and several big regional acts.

Shak Nasti has become a go to rhythm section for recording and performance. You can hear them with Jim White, Terri Binion, Thomas Wynn and the Believers, and Kaleigh Baker.

The band's 4th cd will be coming out in April and a video/concert dvd is in the works.
