The Shakies enjoy playing out in public, at community events, farmers markets, festivals, and private events. Since we are a jam session and not a typical band, the following can be expected when we play at an event: almost all instrumental fiddle tunes and waltzes, a variety of changing instrumentation (violin, mandolin, banjo, guitar, bass), and varying headcount of musicians (could be from 3-15). Please contact our events coordinator if you’d like us to play at your event. Many of our members are in gigging bands that play a variety of folk music (old time, Irish, folk songs, gospel, etc) and we would be happy to recommend any of them to be hired for an event as well.
The current events coordinator for the Pretty Shaky String Band is Molly McBride. You can contact the Pretty Shaky String Band (and the coordinator) by submitting a message through the form below.
