Who are the Soul Shakers?

Five lost souls in search of a beat.

 A gang of four driven to distraction.

Four guys and a girl joined by their mutual love of soul, R & B, rock, blues and beer. 

Actually, the Soul Shakers are seasoned musicians who hail from such Boston institutions as Memphis Rockabilly, BRMC, the Charms, X-Ray Tango and others. Billy Coover is a founding member of Memphis Rockabilly, who've played around the world. Jim has played harp on stage with Muddy Waters! 

The Soul Shakers are:

Jim Boisclair - bass, vocals

John Maynard - Guitar, vocals                                   

Billy Coover - guitar, vocals

Dennis Burke - drums, vocals

Lianne Schaffer - keys/synth, vocals, 

The Soul Shakers have formed with one common goal: to play the music that will move your soul and your feet! Drawing from a bottomless pit of classic songs from the 50's through today, the Soul Shakers aim to entertain and enthrall, whether at the dive bar at the corner, or at any private event or larger venue.
