First Look: The Soul Shakers – Here to Have a Good Time
The Soul Shakers have crafted a rough-house master-stroke with their new retro-esque video for the song titled “Here to Have a Good Time”. Calling on the spirits of classic and neo-classic stomp rockers like the best in rock n’ roll can muster, The Soul Shakers create an anthemic party and stadium-ready future classic fit for everything from an iPod to the turntable while showing you in exactly 4:28 why they are a must to see live. Bravo!
Some photos I found from the trip. Pro photos from the gig coming soon!!
About The Soul Shakers
When Elias Paul Reidy (formerly of The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus) and Brett Hellings formed The Soul Shakers after a chance meeting outside of a club on the Sunset Strip, they had one single goal in mind – to bring good old-fashioned, ass-shaking rock ‘n’ roll back into the forefront.
After two years of writing in Los Angeles and then a move to Nashville, Hellings and Reidy were ready to lay down the tracks for their forthcoming full-length LP. The two flew to Philadelphia to record at Soundmine Recording Studios with producer Dan Malsch (Motionless in White, Tantric, Framing Hanley), featuring Chuck Treece from Bad Brains on drums. The result is a culmination of the diverse lives they’ve led and experiences they’ve had along the way.
The Soul Shakers are one of those bands that seemingly have come out of nowhere. In an age, where the lines of music are blurred and everything is automatically defined by genre/sub-genre, comparison or cornered into a media-contrived box, make no mistake – The Souls Shakers personify what true Rock ‘N’ Roll is. Their repertoire and live shows are guaranteed to shake your very soul and strike a nerve, regardless of your musical tastes.
The band chose the track “Here To Have A Good Time” as their debut video, which was shot in and about their old Los Angeles stomping grounds with director Shane Drake (The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Taylor Swift, Panic! At the Disco).
