SHADY DRIVE is a Northern Ohio (Cleveland area) based Blues/Rock band dedicated to providing quality, live entertainment. Every time these guys hit the stage they bring with them a high level of energy, enthusiasm and excitement that carries over to the enjoyment of their audience and contributes to an ever-growing local popularity. They appeal to a broad range of age groups (from age 3 to 83) and as a result, have developed a very diverse fan base.

SHADY DRIVE prides itself on versatility. They have an enormous song catalog of well known Classic Rock & Blues tunes, and they also have the ability to branch off into various versions of other Dance, Funk, Disco, Motown, Oldies, and Modern Rock hits.

SHADY DRIVE also has several different setup configurations and options with instruments, sound equipment and lighting to accommodate a wide array of budgets and events... From simple, small and intimate gatherings to full-blown, outside, mass audience concerts. They regularly play at rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, graduation parties, anniversaries, block parties, pig roasts, blues festivals, and corporate luncheons and dinners.

SHADY DRIVE frequently plays around town at various clubs, bar & grille's and restaurants. They are currently in a monthly rotation at The Fairview Tavern in Fairview Park, along with other regularly scheduled shows at Vosh in Lakewood, Bullfrog's in North Ridgeville, Park Tavern in North Royalton, and John O's at Clay's Park.

Shady Drive was one of the first to respond with a bid to our Luau Wedding this summer. We went with friends to see them perform locally and were very impressed with their musical talent, and booked them. My wife and I have a very special song and Shady Drive offered to learn it for the wedding. If I didn't personally see Shady Drive performing I'm Yours, I would've thought Jason Mraz was singing it himself. My wife and I, our families, friends, and guests were all very impressed by the enthusiasm, entertainment and talent of the Shady Drive Band. We would HIGHLY recommend Shady Drive to anyone looking to have a rockin' good time for their special event.

FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!!!! We loved this band! We hired Shady Drive to play our wedding reception, and we never could have dreamed they'd be so good! They're a REALLY great band. They are professional, fun, easygoing, nice people who were completely flexible when we ran really late. Rob acted as emcee for toasts and introductions. Even when our guests started making crazy requests, they were completely cool. The band got everyone young and old out on the dance floor, and people absolutely loved them. We would hire them again in a heartbeat. Two HUGE thumbs up, and a glowing recommendation of Shady Drive to anyone looking for a band to play their next event.
