"I have a longtime friend who's a phenomenal guitar player and an incredible singer, and he plays with a remarkable Canadian band called The Soul Shakers. Too many adjectives, you say? Oh no. There aren't enough fabulous adjectives to describe the band and their new CD - Ready for You. I've got pages of notes I could share to describe the unique qualities of every song on the CD. What I'll say here is that it doesn't matter what kind of music you like -- blues, jazz, rock, country -- there's something for you on this CD. Every song is different. Every song is incredibly arranged and precisely executed. The musicians are among the most talented I've heard. The singers are mind-blowing. Here's a link to get it for yourself, and you don't even have to leave your house. 😊🎶"

Hi guys - Just wanted to send a note saying how impressed I am with the new Soul Shakers album. It's a really strong collection. All the vocals, harmonies, playing is a great standard - and the song-writing seems really strong. And the production is good, too! As Siskel and Ebert used to say, "Two thumbs up!"


Congrats on your CD and the awesome party you gave last night.

We had big fun!

Best, K.

The NBS also is going to hold a fundraiser to help defray some of the operating costs.  The show will be at The Queens on Saturday and will feature the Soul Shakers.  They are out of Victoria and are one of the best dance bands on the Island.  They will be doing a CD release party in conjunction with the NBS fundraiser.  You can dance til ya drop, support the Blues Society and pick up a CD to support a great Island band all at the same time!  NBS
