The Down Dirty Shake is a rock n roll band based out of San Francisco. Formed in 2006 by the founding four members in their hometown of Merced CA. They've since moved up and down northern California performing anywhere and everywhere. The group is deeply influenced by the soul that was the 60's, and the central valley blues. It's very apparent in the music that they sound nothing like today's bands. The Shake has put out two self produced albums, a self-titled in 2011 and a live album from the Hopmunk Tavern in early 2012. As heard on the album the boys pride themselves on the live shows, incorporating: a didgeridoo, an organ, 2 electric guitars, a bass, drums, shakers, dancers, and a very energetic front man. The shows are guaranteed to be an experience, always unpredictable and tons of fun for everyone. As they say before every show "we're the down dirty shake and we came to get butt naked"
