Biography

Shake has been in the Kansas City music scene for a couple years now, and has been making it’s mark. The group formed three years ago, and has since grown to prove to many that they are here to stay. The line-up of the band has changed a bit over the years, with the addition of two new guitar players recently to strengthen the sound. Playing to audiences in the KC area and touring regionally, the band is all about connecting with the audience at each show and playing without a net.

Shake can site many influences and is determined to develop their own original music, while keeping crowds on their toes covering their favorite bands. The music is a mix of jazz, funk, blues and rock; with strong vocal harmonies and the chance for pure improvisational moments that leave audiences applauding for more.

Lyrics

Rise

Written By: j.cooper

whisper hints of lullabies blinkin' risin' for the day
illusion seperating
clarity wandering in

i get my first smoke on
the lights are coming faded
running in slow motion
inside the motors in my head

indecision flutters through & the rambling of the thread
wiff the scent of the familiar
the nostalgic revelry

bringing something to the table
for delight & nothing else
simples pleasures often linger
simple times and memories

Chorus: Sleep never helped my eyes(8X)
