“An evening with the Milford St Shakers involves much more than enjoying the music of one of the state’s tightest and most accomplished soul and R&B bands – it’s a whole lot of fun.”
– Peter Hancock | Weekend Notes
Front woman Mia Matthiessen and her upbeat, high energy 11-piece band will feature; James Vinciullo on bass, Dominic D’Leno on drums, Imogen Thompson on percussion, Andy Jarvis on guitar, Austin Salisbury on keyboards, Robert Bresland on trumpet, Mark Sprogowski on tenor sax, Jemima Mills on baritone sax and backing vocalists Taonga Thomson-Lawrence and Roera Mako.
As soon as these dapperly clad cats take to the stage their passion for the 1960s is obvious in every single note. The Milford Street Shakers are more than a typical cover band – this enigmatic 11-piece delivers a soul spectacular of epic proportions!
