Since 1978 the "South's Finest Show Band" has performed at more than 6,000 engagements including over 400 wedding receptions, 700 conventions, and clubs too numerous to mention.
They have performed from New York to Florida and all throughout the Southeast.
The Grand Strand has long been the band's summer home and their best-known hit "Myrtle Beach Days" is proof of the band’s lasting appeal locally.
This versatile and experienced group is led by Beach Music Hall of Famer Bo Schronce and features up to five vocalists and three horns, and performs almost any style of music from up-tempo dance and rock to the smooth easy listening for the more subdued occasions.
Over the years they have performed alongside such acts as the Beach Boys, KC and the Sunshine Band, the Four Tops, Jan and Dean and many more.
The Shakers have won many awards including two-time show group of the year, three time album of the year, and Schronce has been named male vocalist of the year on four different occasions.
With state-of-the-art equipment, a custom-made wardrobe and endless amounts of personality and charisma, the Shakers focus on bringing a top-notch live show full of fun every time out.
