I LOVE THE SHAKERS! So goes the catch phrase from devoted fans of The Shakers. So when the four-piece band with roots in Los Angeles and Philadelphia released their highly anticipated full-length debut album, Oh So Loud!, devoted fans showed up in full force at sold-out Viper Room.

The Shakers, consisting of lead-singer Jodie Schell, Chris Lee (guitar), Nick Woods (drums), and newly acquired Blane Barker (bass) are quickly building a reputation for their high energy shows, proving they can go from face-pounding, in-your-face rock to a slow-burning, jazzy flavor and back again, holding your attention while unleashing their volcanic rock.

Oh So Loud, their follow up to their 2010 EP, nods to the soulful sounds of Motown, evoking sultry coos from Schell on "Right Now" and "Real Fast Plane," to the booming, high-octane rawness of pure rock'n'roll in "It's Me" and "Gimme Honey." Oh So Loud is a rousing debut that flourishes with each track. There's no mistaking the talent in the group's rich performance.

The Shakers just wrapped up their East Coast tour and return to play back in Los Angeles on December 9th when they play the Irish Times Pub in Culver City. You can purchase Oh So Loud! on iTunes right HERE.
