Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers: Southern by the Grace of Goth!
Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers started their hell-for-leather, Penta-caustic roadshow a few years back and in a short time have earned quite a name for themselves with their unique brand of American Gothic that is all-at-once irreverent, revisionist, dangerous, and fun. Led by their wildly charismatic rail thin frontman, the blues-harpist J.D. Wilkes, th Shack*Shakers are a four-man wrecking crew from the South whose explosive interpretations of the blues, punk, rock and country have made fans, critics and legions of potential converts into true believers.
Described as "...the last great Rock & Roll frontman" by Jello Biafra (of the Dead Kennedys), Shack*Shakers front man J.D. Wilkes began yelpin the blues through a ham radio microphone at his boyhood home of Paducah, Kentuckya short farmer's blow away from where his future bassist Mark Robertson was cutting his teeth on punk rock and gospel in Nashville, Tennessee. When their paths crossed a few years later in the lawless honky tonks of music citys lower broadway scene, they found their individuated styles and common interests meshed and thats when the like-minded, red-headed musical misfits began their crusade. With the recent addition of guitarist extraordinaire David Lee (South Carolina's preeminent bad-ass and "Illustrated Man") th' Legendary Shack*Shakers have quickly become know for providing some of the best entertainmentlive or otherwisethat you can get for your hard-earned money.
