$500 - $2000 per event
Shakedown Street is a classic rock band playing hits from the 60's, and 70's. We are also a Grateful Dead cover band. So, you can hire us to be either a Grateful Dead cover band, a classic rock cover band, or, a combination. We have been together for over 11 years.

Who Hires Us? Typically, we are hired for backyard BBQs, backyard weddings, Grateful Dead birthday parties, college fraternity parties, college graduation parties, etc. Gigmasters has taken us all over New England!! We played for Brown University graduates on the beach in Rhode Island. We also had great fun playing for an MIT fraternity party on their rooftop on Beacon Street in Boston. We have played at THE HOUSE OF BLUES!! We recently played a wedding in the middle of the couple's 90 acre Vermont farm!

How Much? For the backyard events that are within 50 miles or so, we average around $500. The costs increase if the travel requires us to stay overnight. In general, we all have day jobs and play music for lots of fun and a little money to cover costs of equipment, gas, etc.

We have excellent harmony vocals so we can rock out to songs like, "Mustang Sally" and "Hang on Sloopy", "Not Fade Away", Truckin', Franklin's Tower, and of course, Shakedown Street! We have a lead guitarist that rivals the famous guys like Clapton - crowds actually yell for Jim to play on and on as if he were a "guitar hero" (no kidding!). Rounding out the band are a rhythm guitarist, bassist, and drummer. We can play easily for hours and hours, and if you're dancing, we will play the song until you drop! We play the slow ones and good ole rock 'n roll!

We will also learn a song or two for your event!
Lastly, We have fun and so will you! See out reviews!!

Everyone, even the non deadheads, thought they were great. They created a setlist that that was perfect for us.

We hired Shakedown Street for our festival never having heard them before and can't say how happy and impressed we were with their performance, selection of songs and friendly manner. They had us all dancing and singing along. We would certainly recommend them to anyone asking. Thanks for getting us in touch with them!!

Outstanding performance! East to communicate with, yet professional. Everyone at the party was complimenting on how great Shakedown Street sounded...even after the last minute requests, which we greatly appreciate the accommodation! Shakedown Street was here early to set up and ready to play ahead of schedule.They were also asked to start playing a requested song when the birthday girl arrived, it was like I did not have to tell them she was here...they started playing as her car door opened. Could not have been better! The next time I need a band at a party, I will definitely give Shakedown Street the GIG! Thanks again. Gary
