About this Event
ABOUT THE ACT:
With a career spanning more than four decades and a back catalogue packed with groove classics including ‘Night Birds’ and ‘Down On The Street’, it’s easy to see just why Shakatak have maintained their cult status - not only at home in the UK but with worldwide audiences too.
Band consists of the four original members Bill Sharpe (keys), Jill Saward (lead voc, perc & flt), Roger Odell (drs) & George Anderson (bs gtr), augmented with a guitarist and a backing vocalist/saxophonist, producing a musically dynamic and entertaining show from the 6 piece line-up.
Their latest 2019 release is “In The Blue Zone” which features guest appearances by the UK’s top jazz singer Liane Carroll and Germany’s super-star trumpeter Till Bronner.
“The final act of the evening and of the entire festival was the illustrious Shakatak. Rarely has a group enjoyed so much success in a jazz field but tonight we were given insight into why they are held in such high regard. They are consummate professionals with seemingly unlimited stamina and an instinctive ability to hold an audience...tonight they proved they are timeless”. BUZZ Magazin
"This music still glows as brightly as that first hearing...Shakatak aren't just a band, they were the soundtrack to our lives" RONNIE SCOTT'S House Magazine (UK)
"A wild diversity seldom found anymore... tons of rhythmic and stylistic variety... slamming" JAZZIZ Magazine (USA)
Shakatak aren't just a band, they are the soundtrack for a generation of jazz funk and rare groove aficionados.
