The Silvershakers / Bio

In the true spirit of rockabilly, The Silvershakers were founded upon reckless abandon; taking on a gig as the opener for a local burlesque show before they were even a band. The energy and chemistry unleashed on that fateful night were undeniable, and the foursome quickly realized their unique meld of rip-roarin’ n’ riotous female-led rockabilly, 50’s country, jump blues, and swingy lounge music had left the people wanting more.

Tara Norwood’s smooth howls and lip-quiverin’ growls, backed by Mike Rickard’s fiery guitar, Frankie Cadillac’s chest-thumpin’ bass and Matt Norwood’s hypnotic drums, make it impossible for any cat or kitten out on the town to keep their hind-ends in their seats.

The Silvershakers' debut album, "Barely Scrapin' By", released June 30, 2016, includes 13 original tracks that draw on inspiration from greats like Wanda Jackson, Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, and Ruth Brown.

Little bit o’ twang, a good helpin’ of swing, and several big, round, heapin’ spoonfuls of rock n’ roll. Bring your dancin' shoes.
