Legendary Shack Shakers are touring across Europe starting this week


The band Stephen King described as “dynamite” and guitar legend Jeff Beck called “a cross between the Yard Birds and the Sex Pistols"; while former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra has called JD  “the last great Rock and Roll frontman.” The Legendary Shack Shakers’ hell-for-leather roadshow has earned quite a name for itself with its unique brand of Southern Gothic and swampy "hillbilly blues" that is all-at-once irreverent, lyrical, dangerous, and fun.

Led by their charismatic, rail-thin frontman and blues-harpist JD Wilkes, the Shack Shakers are a four-man wrecking crew from the South whose explosive interpretations of swamp blues, rock n' roll and hillbilly music have made fans, critics and legions of potential converts into true believers. Nearly twenty-five years into their worldwide crusade, Legendary Shack Shakers have become the leaders in the underground music scene. Such a wealth of devoted, cult-like fans has only added to the mystique that the Legendary Shack Shakers possess, carrying them down the road toward new creative pursuits and intense new music and ideas.

By the end of the month JD Wilkes will start on his own for a solo show in Dublin then to be joined by his band for a full European tour hitting off at Red Rooster Festival and bringing the Legendary Shack Shakers to the UK, Belgium, The Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Finland for festivals and clubshows:
