Mississippi Shakedown - Blues Lives Here 2008
Mississippi Shakedown is a Band with a minimum of FUSS and a maximum of EFFECT. A 3-piece unit led by Blues Rock charged SLIDE GUITAR, with a “Don’t Bore Us, Get to the Chorus” attitude!
With influence from the deep south, these guys have heart. This band was not created to play in a restaurant.
Just take a listen to their current CDs, Mississippi Shakedown and Right Here Right Now with their 3rd CD "The Blues Lives Here" - all original songs, with an original attitude. The band takes no prisoners on their journey to Shakedown an audience. Once seen, never forgotten, once heard always loved!!!
Fronted by Mississippi Jeff Cripps, (well known owner of A# Sharp Recording Studio and 2002, 2003 and 2005 Australian Blues Music Awards' Producer Of The Year, with a dozen of his artists also having won Australian Blues Awards) on slide guitar and vocals. The band is driven by John Gannon on bass with Derek Smith on drums in the engine room!!
Together, this trio in the style of Elmore James/Hound Dog Taylor, deliver one of the happiest sets of blues around and are sure to have everyone up on their feet hollering for more.
