Bio

The Stone Sugar Shakedown, a 5-piece Funk, Rock, Jam band from Saint Louis, Missouri, was united by a love of musical exploration, improvisation, & getting soulfully nasty.

The group’s sound involves consistent interplay between instruments and the musical chemistry of its members. There is a constant balance of form and flow, structure and spontaneity, stone and sugar.

Each show is a unique experience, catered to the atmosphere, and fueled by the music of Ryan Benthall (bass), Nick Elwood (guitar/vocals), Tracy Gladden (vocals/percussion), Keith Vinyard (guitar), and Ben Walters (drums).

Since Fall 2009, The Shakedown has played a great deal of shows and festivals around the Midwest including Camp Zoe’s Schwagstock, and the 10th anniversary Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, Illinois, and has shared the ticket with bands like: Dumpstaphunk, Victor Wooten, Cornmeal, Whitewater Ramble, moe., Umphrey’s McGee, Steel Pulse, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Yonder Mountain String Band, Papadosio, The Avett Brothers, The Schwag, Melvin Seals & JGB, and Zappa Plays Zappa.

Everyone could enjoy The Shakedown’s music. It welcomes people of all ages, genders, types, and backgrounds. Thus, the audience is ever expanding. At the shows, the group wants its fans to let their minds wander, and feel free to become just as much a part of the collective vibe as the musicians onstage.

This wave’s getting bigger and bigger, and there’s no slowing the momentum.

Their future looks bright and funky.
