Soulshake is nothing more that a rock and roll band, plain and simple. With a sound reminicent of ADCD, KISS, GUNS n ROSES and BLACK SABBATH.

Biography

Soulshake is anything but ordinary. Although the band is new, all of the members are no strangers to the music business. Soulshake was formed in 2002 by Warren Von Kruck (Vocals & Guitars), Ray Schneller (Lead Guitar), Joe Higgins (Bass) and Kato Peragine (Drums). Soulshake's music is drawn from the rawness of bands such as ACDC, Guns & Roses and Black Sabbath but at the same time they have created a fresh sound making them anything but what is seen as safe in todays pop culture.
After releasing their independent debut CD "Revolution" they began touring the country building a strong following. Touring constantly not only created a demand for the music but Soulshake had finally stepped into the industry and was now suddenly sparking everyone’s interest. This led to a large number of endorsement offers from some of the largest companies such as; Line 6 Amplifiers, DW Drums, Black Diamond Strings, Sabian Cymbals, Vater Sticks, Sennheiser Microphones and Ultimate Support Stands. The later of which supplied the band with a custom chrome microphone stand in which there are only four others in existence, owned by such multi-platinum recording artists as Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Justin Timberlake, Usher and Michael Jackson. Soulshake then began taking on sponsors such as Guitar Center USA and Jagermeister. Guitar Center took notice of the bands work ethic, sound and most of all their appeal to not only the younger crowd but the seasoned music listener as well, and offered them a spot headlining all of the east coast Guitarmageddon finals and co-headlining with the Smithereens at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.
Not long after that, the radio promotion was already building. After making more than 20 radio appearances they were asked to be Q104.3's house band and began headling every corporately promoted function. This led to Q104.3's comedian Chuck Nice asking the band to open and close his headlining night at Madison Square Garden. Of course they jumped at the opportunity to not only capture hundreds of people at this arena but they were then able to see their name highlighted on the MSG marquee. For an up and coming band trying to break through there is no greater feeling of achievement. Following the completion of the tour they put together a 2 hour DVD concert with footage of their appearances in the US and South America.
Soulshake's music has already been heard on KROQ 102.3, WBAB, Q104.3, 98.5 The Bone, 95.5 KLOS California, KROQ Los Angeles and WMMS Cleveland. This airplay helped their indie release "Revolution" earn a massive 6.8 sanctioned downloads on mp3.com.
Soulshake has spent the last couple of months in the studio with Producer Tomas Costanza (Diffuser) working on their new album "Your Dirty Little Secrets". The album is an eclectic mix of raw retro style rock combined with today’s cutting edge production.

Lyrics

She Likes Girls

Written By: SOULSHAKE

Down at the beach, In the sand
We walked for miles hand in hand
I was so in love, I never felt so alive.

But when I looked into her eyes
you can imagine my suprise
to see her turn, and watch all the young girls walk by.

Well I did thie best I can, She's not with me, cause I'm a man.
She Likes Girls

I never saw through her disguise.
I played the fool to all her lies.
I should have known by the way She laid there paralyzed.
Now all my cafefully laid out plans
Have washed away in the sand.
I still can't believe that she's dining at the Y

Well I did thie best I can, She's not with me, cause I'm a man.
She Likes Girls

I gave my heart to you
and you knew just what to do..
cause then you went and threw my love away.

Well I did thie best I can, She's not with me, cause I'm a man.
She Likes Girls

Don't Blame me

Written By: SOULSHAKE

Your baby's not so innocent
She got her head in the clouds.
She'll leave you tongue tied and ignorant
Your baby's been the talk of the town

She always give me what I need.
I never need to complain..
cause you know she's try anything.
So get out of my way...

Don't Blame Me For What I Did To Your Daughter
I Did To Your Daughter, Don't Blame Me
I Gave Her What She Needs.

She never asks for anything.
She's aiming to please.
She's a pint sized match to my dynomite
and brings me to my knees.
Her face should be in magazines
and I got some pictures to sell.
but it's not something you wanna see
cause your daughter does me well.

Don't Blame Me For What I Did To Your Daughter
I Did To Your Daughter, Don't Blame Me
I Gave Her What She Needs.
