The Shack*Shakers play fried country rock and roll my friends, and they take the stage with an energy and passion that runs circles around all but the most earnest of hardcore bands. They dip into the darker reaches of American music only to further sully songs of murder and mayhem with a brush dipped in poison...or blood.
The Shack*Shakers eschew stale platitudes. Instead, they combine all that is scary and fun about the South (sideshows, folklore and murder ballads) and combine them in an adrenaline-fueled, super-human display of rock and roll heroism.
"The Shack Shakers were [SXSW's]single scariest band with an X-rated set fueled by whiskey, repressed memories of schoolyard beatings and rockabilly." - Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune
