The Shakedown were incredible. The whole night we got questions about how we found them and saying how amazing they were. At least one person got their card to do a wedding all the way up in Cleveland, OH next year. There was never a lull in the energy, people were always on the dance floor and having a great time. Nash, the lead singer and one who handles the logistics was very easy to work with and good at understanding what we wanted. The only thing guests will remember are if the food was good and if the music was good. If you want an amazing experience and an awesome party, make the investment and go with The Shakedown.

The Shakedown were BRILLIANT! We have seen them play many times and enjoy them so much we HAD TO HAVE THEM for our Wedding reception. These guys are Pros! Nash and company bring the energy, good vibes, great music - and they keep the good times going for hours!! The Shakedown nailed our special song requests, and can play anything you can imagine. Not happy to simply play a cover - they clearly spend time and a great deal of effort to make everything as perfect as possible. Throughout our reception, practically everyone complemented the band and we found that every one of our 200+ guests was bouncing around the dancefloor all night long!! Thanks Gents!

We are very happy with our decision to hire The Shakedown for our wedding reception. The dance floor was hoppin' all night long and everyone was having a good time. We really wish they could have played longer but have nothing but positive things to say about experience with them. We look forward to seeing them again!
