King Shakey are a six-piece rock/country/bluegrass band. They play songs they love and hope you will too, injecting them with guitars, mandolin and vocal harmony.
At the heart of King Shakey are Paul Nickerson (guitar, harmonica, vocals, Mark R Paynter (mandolin, guitar, vocals and James Martin (guitar, vocals). The vocal sound created by these lads is central to the Shakey sound. Providing the backbone to the sound are Rhys Hotchkies (bass) and Wayne Harrower (drums).
KS covers Neil Young, Cosby Stills Nash, Paul Kelly, The Beatles and also songs from a whole lot more artists. The song selection criteria is that we love the songs and can make them work. They choose songs to please themselves and hope the audience will too. So far so good, on that score
