The Rhythm Shakers / Bio

The founding members of the Rhythm Shakers sat down in a Los Angeles apartment one day and listened to the demo’s they had just recorded and knew they had started something special: All the viciousness and savagery of a hardnosed 50’s Rock and Roll band fronted by a charismatic lead singer. Except something was different this time; the lead singer was female. Marlene Perez is not the typical female lead singer, she trades sweet for savage and kind for killer. Having toured all over Europe with notable appearances at High Rockabilly, Viva Las Vegas, Screaming festival, and The Rockabilly Rave the bands full length album “Flipsville” (2008), their two 45 RPMs, and now a new full length LP and CD “Voodoo” (2014) have projected their power on many rock and roll dance floors. It is the Rhythm Shakers goal to keep things interesting by recording Rockabilly, Rock and Roll, and Blues oriented tracks with Marlene’s growling vocals ever present on top. The Rhythm Shakers continue to embark on multi-date European tours and frequent Rockin’ festivals all over the world as they continue on their world wide rock and roll expedition.
