At the beginning of the year, my buddies in Shooter Jennings band had an idea. Let’s start an ACDC cover band (Bon Scott Era ONLY). “We’ll have a ball and we’ll make some money and we’ll call it Squealer”. The problem is, they didn’t have a frontman.
So they called me.:)

Since then, I’ve been hit up by a wide range of cover bands with gimmicks galore and rad musicians who, like me, just need an extra buck here and there. I might be gigging with some pals in Valley Gurl (80s) and Girls Girls Girls (a Motley Crue cover band) soon, but I only gig when it doesn’t conflict with The Shakers. …It’s in the fine print of every contract, thanks to my attorney in Texas, whom I still refer to the same as I did on our 7th grade basketball team: Sexy Jessy.
The Shakers (WWW.ILOVETHESHAKERS) are also increasing their roster of cover-songs to continue our growing schedule of corporate events, weddings, and birthdays. Covers include our soul and motown favorites from the likes Martha & The Vandellas, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Ike & Tina Turner, Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Bill Withers, Temptations, The Four Tops, and MORE! (Don’t worry, we’ll still play ACDC and Led Zeppelin http://youtu.be/MDkcXbViR-Y)
