"The Shaker Pegs"

It’s New York’s finest unsigned band: The Shaker Pegs. They describe their sound modestly as “Three guys playing rock 'n' roll music” – but there’s a whole generation more to it than that. Think Kinks, Monkees and early Beatles plus the punk-pop punctuation of a 3-minute Ramones song. You’re sad when it ends, the party’s over, and it’s encore or nothin’. Original members Mark Piro and Chris Memoli, with the addition of Steve Memoli on guitar and vocals, channel Zombies and Beach Boys harmony into this upbeat brand of Oasis-type addiction. That’s their hook, you know; these singsong melodies take the best part of old-school charm and rock ‘n’ roll to make the Greatest Hits you’ve never heard. Take a risk and open your heart to The Valentinos:

"Shaker Pegs Blue Moon Review"

I can honestly say that I have not heard an album this upbeat in a very long time. It is impossible to keep from dancing around while Blue Moon is playing. Tracks like "Hey Natalie" and "Sabrina" will be in your head long after listening. The Shaker Pegs are a welcomed addition to the Pop world, and I am looking forward to hearing much more from them. - Pop Garden Radio

"Blue Moon Review"

By fusing ‘60s-esque rock-and-roll with their own individual style, the band has an excitement that encourages listeners to tap their toes and snap their fingers. The vocal harmonies sometimes strain to keep up with the wonderful songwriting, but these guys have the right idea - Powerpopaholic


2009-Blue Moon
2010-Forthcoming 7" release



The Shaker Pegs are a three-piece rock-and-roll band looking to take the world by storm by playing their infectious music to everyone and anyone willing to listen. Originally formed by longtime friends Mark Piro and Chris Memoli, The Shaker Pegs have always insisted on creating a sound that harkens back to the magic of their favorite records of the 1950s and 1960s but with their own unique spin. This fusion has created an exciting sound that encourages listeners to tap their toes and snap their fingers. Simply put, The Shaker Pegs make music fun again and make people dance.
The band's debut album, Blue Moon, displayed the raw and melodic sound that was always present at their live shows, just now put to tape for listeners to enjoy over and over again. Blue Moon enjoyed positive reviews from Powerpopaholic and Pop Garden radio as well as constant airplay on New York radio station WFMU.
The Shaker Pegs are now focusing their attention on a forthcoming 7" single release as well as a extensive tour in the spring.
