UK Jazz Funk Legends Shakatak (“Night Birds”, “Down on the Street” and more) Return – Expect Big Grooves And A Sell Out Show!
Shakatak have enjoyed a level of success and career longevity rarely paralleled in contemporary music but then Shakatak is a particularly unusual group. Because of the nature of their music their fan base is one that is far reaching while always retaining an “underground” element. This paradox sees the band, who are known primarily for their musicality, enjoying both high “cult” status and instant recognition as a household name due to their numerous hit recordings. Throughout their 31 year career Shakatak have released over 50 CDs plus 3 DVDs and most of the band’s extensive back catalogue is now available world-wide on iTunes. Along with their successful recording career, Shakatak have firmly established themselves as a vibrant live act, combining astute musicianship with a sense of fun that communicates strongly with world-wide audiences.
Line up: Jill Saward (Vocals, Percussion, Flute), Bill Sharpe (Keyboards), Roger Odell (Drums), George Anderson (Bass)
