deep basement shakers

Sunday, May 12th – 4:30-6:30 pm
Mother’s Day!
with the Deep Basement Shakers
which way west?
Sunday concert series   

Aaron Hammerman and Dave Eagle are the Deep Basement Shakers, delivering primal, joint-rockin’, steady-rollin’ barrelhouse blues n’ boogie from the deep musical traditions of places like St. Louis, Texas, Chicago and New Orleans.

Instrumental stuff from the 20’s, 30’s through to the early days of R&B, Jimmy Yancey to Clarence Lofton, Professor Longhair to Cow Cow Davenport & Meade Lux Lewis, Maxwell Street to Frenchman Street, they dig into the ancient styles of the new century… the 20th century, that is…

“But this ain’t no history museum where you can’t touch the glass,” say the Shakers…

Aaron Hammerman, piano, kazoo and vocals
Dave Eagle, washboard, suitcase, spoons, bones, bells & whistles
