Believe it or not, Shaky Groundz began one fine day on a golf course on the Central Coast of California. A group of retired golfers realized they had not only golf in common, but music as well. They decided to stop talking about it and began to make it real when they all got together to jam. After a few sessions they realized this group should somehow form a band. These guys are the founders of Shaky Groundz:
Richard Olivarez on the lead guitar and vocals, Paul Trevino on rhythm guitar, harmonica and lead vocals and lastly, (but certainly not leastly) the ubiquitous Sal Cruz on bass and vocals. After several trials and mishaps, the band finally jelled into its present configuration. These are the four talented musicians who complete the band's lineup and give them that 'Shaky Groundz Style' signature sound;
Karen Alcazar on lead vocals. She's the newest member of the band and if this band were a piece of cake, she'd definitely be the frosting. Alfred Rasgado, lead vocals & LoKoKat and a front man like no other. Paul Liebert, the hippy of the group, adds color and texture to the band. Sabor! The heartbeat of the band is Larry Gaitán on drums. He's that laid-back vato from Lompoc--Órale ese! They're all dope musicians, and ALL of them have definitely paid some dues!
