Gig Time Tonight - Shake Shake Go

I don't normally write off subject posts but I am very happy with this exception. We bumped into the band a couple of years ago whilst shopping in Nottingham. They were touring the country doing gigs at night and busking in the day. Their music is kind of Folk Pop, and very catchy. Their big break was supporting James Blunt on his UK tour last year. They remain fairly underground though have had some airplay on Radio Two and are doing well in Europe, especially France where some of the band comes from.

Tonight they are playing at Rough Trade in Nottingham and it's a free gig. Doors open at six so they will be on stage early enough that we can take the kids who really love the band.

They are releasing their first album early next year but have released two excellent four track CD's so far. Check out some of their U-Tube videos and the Facebook page is here.

Here is one of the new ones, England Skies, enjoy.

    1. Indeed, having heard here sing without a mike I knew it was not worked if you know what I mean

  2. Super fun. And hey, what's wrong with posting, off topic?

    Listening to her now as I type. She sounds good. I'd like to hear here let those pipes loose. I bet she can really jam out.

    1. Nothing wrong at all but I tend to stick on topic most of the time LOL

    2. They were great last night, the kids loved it and yes she can belt it out but most of the time she was getting good results without looking like she was pushing it,

    1. I don't think they fit in any box as it where. Got to chat with them afterwards and the kids had the cd's and a poster signed so everyone very happy and still buzzing
