SHAKEDOWN + The Remnants
Friday November 20, 2015 @ 8:00 PM
Shakedown is a Connecticut based band that has been performing their unique version of a Grateful Dead Concert since 1987. Although Shakedown features wonderful three part harmonies, varied and interesting jams that reflect the band members special chemistry, they are first & foremost a ‘dance band”. An unbelievably loyal following of fans have blossomed over the years. Shakedown has been performing regularly at Toad’s Place in New Haven since 1995 and at almost every major music venue in Southern New England including yearly main stage performances at The Strange Creek Campout and Wormtown Music Festival. Shakedown fans know that they can always expect a high energy show from the band: from “Truckin” to “Touch of Grey” expect to “dance til ya drop”.
Since 2009, the Remnants have been a growing force in the music industry, each member influenced by a different musical genre and brought together by their continued love of performing. The Remnants are four year Gathering of the Vibes veterans and have also taken the stage at venues such as the 2013 and 2014 Woodstock Reunion at Yasgur’s Farm and the Legendary Toad's Place. In 2014 the band recorded and released their debut album, simply titled “The Remnants”. The band’s mix of original material along with their unique take on cover material provides an unforgettable and exciting experience at every show.
