The third week of September, 1978, was marked the beginning of an era, the formation of THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS, known as the “South’s Finest Show Band.” Since the inception of the band, the have performed over 6,000 engagements including over 400 wedding receptions, 700 conventions, and clubs too numerous to mention.  The band’s summer home and their hit single “Myrtle Beach Days” catapulted The Shakers to the top of the Carolinas musical groups.

This combination of experience and longevity has allowed THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS to possess a level of versatility few other groups can match. With five lead vocalists and up to three horns, they can perform almost any style of music from up-tempo dance and rock to the smooth easy listening for the more subdued occasions.  The music is GREAT but what sets THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS apart is the personality of the group.  From start to finish every performance becomes a PARTY!  The fun starts at the first note and doesn’t stop until the last.  A performance by THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS is not just a party, it is an EVENT!

Special attention is given to appearance, with over $80,000 spent on custom-made wardrobing. Tuxedos are always available for the formal occasion.  This Shakers’ carry a state of the art JBL P.A. that is powered by over 16,000 watts of QSC amplifiers. The lighting system features 16,000 watts of power controlled by NEL multiplex controllers. An ultraquartz spotlight is used to highlight the floorshow. This flexibility allows them to accommodate any size event from a small reception to a large outdoor event.

So, you say “what makes The Shakers different?” Personality! Fun! Charisma! From start to finish, an engagement with THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS is one big party. Don’t misunderstand, the music is great, but The Shakers are here for you to have a good time. The boys will keep you entertained from start to finish.
