Shakedown Street
Shakedown Street
One of the longest running Grateful Dead tribute bands in the world, Shakedown Street, makes its home in and around the Rocky Mountain region of North America. Spawned from jam sessions at the Ancient Mariner bar in Manitou Springs, Colorado in 1987, Shakedown Street quickly grew in popularity, and garnered a legion of loyal fans who refer to themselves as "Shakeheads". In a few short years, throngs of "Shakeheads" could be found on the highways and byways of the Rocky Mountains, making their way to another Shakedown Street show.

In the live music venues of the Rocky Mountains, there are only a few bands that are able to consistantly draw large audiences. Shakedown Street accomplishes this year after year by embodying the Grateful Dead ethos of improvisation and discovery, while maintaining an intimacy and open repoire with its audience. A whole new generation of "Shakeheads" has discovered the positive and collaborative energy found at a Shakedown Street concert. Longtime fans are thrilled to find the band sounding hotter than ever, and having the time of their lives!

Throughout the years, Shakedown Street has had the privilege of sharing the stage with many iconic musicians. Some of these include former Grateful Dead members Vince Welnick and Tom Constanten, as well as Melvin Seals of the Jerry Garcia Band. Others include Los Lobos' David Hidalgo, The JGB Band, Hot Tuna, New Riders Of The Purple Sage, Merl Saunders, Jerry Jeff Walker, Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon, and many others.

With a working repertoire of over two hundred songs, Shakedown Street is able to perform multi night runs without repetition, drawing equally from early and modern Grateful Dead songs, and weave together unique and unforgettable performances. Believing that it is good to give back to the planet, Shakedown Street performs charity and benefit engagements on an ongoing basis to help their local and global communities.
Wake Up and Live - A Bob Marley Tribute
Wake Up and Live - A Bob Marley Tribute
"Don't bury your thoughts; put your dream to reality!"
-Bob Marley, "Wake Up & Live"

Denver guitarist and vocalist Dave Halchak decided to put together a group of musicians to celebrate the music of Bob Marley, and pay tribute to the songs by creating some exciting jams, and throwing one fine party. The result was a show in February of 2013 on Marley's Birthday. The chemistry of this newfound group in rehearsal plus the success of the show inspired this new concept for a tribute band: Wake Up & Live.
Wake Up & Live pushes the boundaries of your normal "tribute" band by taking the music of Bob Marley into uncharted improvisational moments. This and the stellar arrangements create a unique and powerful twist on the Marley catalog. After just a year, the Denver based band has already made their mark on the premier stages of Colorado.

Check them out on Facebook, ReverbNation, Soundcloud or LIVE!
The band features Dave Halchak on guitar and lead vocals, Keith Hicks on lead guitar, Andrew Martin on keyboards, Jay Are Ranck on drums, Neil Ross Hebbert on bass, LaSha Waldroup & Jamie Jay on vocals. There are sometimes featured percussionists, horn players and additional sounds as well so be sure to check them out in your town soon!
