As it comes to pass in the lifespan of any band, change has come upon The Shakes.
Founding member, guitar player, Scott Oppenheimer, has bowed out of the band life and will be missed on stage but still around town.
Casi Baker(Singer) and Jim Hirsbrunner(Bassist) are moving onto a new project, while Wayne Rouse(Guitarist) and Todd Van Lierop(Drummer) do the same. Though the members of The Shakes! will be in separate bands, we part as friends.
Thanks to all of you for being the rowdy-fun-fan gang that you are and have been for the last 8 years. We really do appreciate getting to party with you, play music for you and generally entertain you. It's a privilege.
