The Shakedown Combo perform with the attitude that Rockabilly can be modern and contemporary, not simply a sound from past decades revived by cover bands whenever retro becomes fashionable. The band favours original material over reworking the old classics,
however they don't dismiss the original rockers, or the 1980s revivalists. Rockabilly artists from both eras play a big part in influencing the sound and style of The Shakedown Combo, giving them a solid bass to move forward from.
Rockabilly fans will love the twanging guitar and slapping double bass that typify the genre, but the catchy upbeat songs and modern production invite wider appeal.
The Shakedown Combo's line-up consists of two girls (Gill on vocals and Kim on upright bass) and one
Guy (Davey Lee on guitar) who together blast out Red Hot Bass Slappin' Beat Whackin' Rockabilly Twang!
The band is Nova Scotia, Canada based but keeps mobile - the band members all have 1000's of touring miles under their belts cut across the entirety of Europe, from the UK to Scandinavia and The Netherlands to the depths of Italy, not to mention festivals and clubs throughout North America.
