Brooklyn Shakers, Saturday 19th August, 100 Wardour St

Playing a mixture of ska, funk, soul and New Orleans jazz and boasting an impressive lineup that has together played with the likes of Simply Red and Grace Kelly, the Brooklyn Shakers are an impressive live act. The band say that they bring the attitude of Amy Winehouse and the energy of James Brown to their shows - an effective combination indeed.
