Act Profile


Performing together for over 8 years, Shakeout have developed an act that is simply unbeatable. We believe the recordings do all the talking for how good these musicians really are!

Shakeout feature three of the UK’s top session players. Alex has played guitar in the pit on West End shows and with major acts like Fleetwood Bac (who recently headlined at Bestival with Sir Elton John.)

When forming the band, the main aim was to create a high energy act with a wide repertoire across styles and genres that could liven up any event. Shakeout never fail to create a great atmosphere and have certainly lived up to their name.

All three musicians are well accomplished in their own rights and have a wealth of National and International experience that shines through during performances. Most importantly, Shakeout are highly professional and 100% reliable in every way and always work towards giving you the best show possible for the occasion.

Shakeout have an electronic drum kit which they can use upon request. This enables the band to control the sound levels and play at a quieter volume than bands with an acoustic drum kit.

Shakeout can also be booked as a Rockaoke aka Bandeoke band and are one of the most accomplished live karaoke bands in the UK. They can also offer a unique live band pop quiz called Beat The Band which is a fun, interactive pop quiz featuring a live band. They have played over a hundred shows with this act in the last couple of years and it has proved a popular choice for holiday parks and corporate parties.

Thank you Shakeout for making my husband's 50th excellent! Everyone loved you and every song on the money! Not sure about playing mustang Sally and saying 'this is for you Sally'.. I then dance with Nick they all watched... We just made it up and it was so funny.. Lots of footage just made for an impromptu real laugh thank you!! Would recommend you to everyone - come back for his 60th!!

-Sally Powell

Hi Rick, thank you again for recommending shakeout to us, we had a fantastic wedding day and our guests absolutely loved them. Please find below a review for them, I hope it's an ok length for you for your website.
Shakeout were an absolutely perfect band for our wedding day - Will was a pleasure to deal with on the run up to the day and was able to incorporate our first dance request swiftly, as well as making helpful suggestions for how we might like to put the set list together. They were perfect, as we didn't want the band to be 'themed', but we did want a few oldies - they played a set of 50's and 60's classics and a set of 80's and more modern dance tunes, and were totally in tune with the guests and what would be fun to dance to, while operating a bespoke playlist we put together on spotify between sets. They were polite, punctual and talented, and seemed totally invested in our day as a special occasion. We would recommend them to anyone keen for a wide ranging set list, great musicianship, and command of a crowd. Thanks again.

-Max Dorey August 2018

Shakeout were absolutely amazing at my wedding on 19/11/16.
They performed our first dance which was just awesome and played a large repertoire catering for pretty much all music tastes.
All the guests commented on how great the band were and how much they enjoyed the music, there was much dancing.
Thank you so much for your effort.
Would recommend to anyone for any event.

-Sarah and John Bryning

Alex and the Band played at my Husbands 50th party on Saturday night. The playlist was tight and seamlessly performed. They learnt a couple of very tricky ELO tunes which we had requested and they were Ggggreat! The dance floor was mobbed the whole time they played and we have had loads of great feedback on the quality of the music. Thank you all so much for BRAMFEST rock!

-Jo and Tim Childs

Alex, just a quick note to say thank you so much for making our day even more memorable and enjoyable than it already was! You and the guys were brilliant and provided the perfect entertainment. Just wanted to let you know how happy with your performance Michelle and I were.

-Neal Hogkinson July 2016

Shake Out recently played at our wedding and they were excellent - everyone really enjoyed their music and they made it a fun night for all. The quality of their sound was exceptional. Thanks guys!

-Nigel and Kerry

I booked Shakeout for my garden party, brilliant, glad I did. Really nice guys, great music, everyone had a great time and got up and sang. They even learned some more Green Day for me (they do all styles of music, don't let Green Day put you off) which was great. I would strongly recommend them to anyone and will definitely book them again for my next big do.

-Peter Thatcher

Shakeout were absolutely brilliant at our 40th. The party TOTALLY kicked off and this was largely due to them. Would highly recommend!

Thank you for an excellent hassle free service as well, I will recommend you to my friends.

-Peter Thatcher Jan 2015

We just wanted to write to say a huge thank you for Saturday. Sadly Punam and I were so busy being whisked away for photos that we didn't have as much time as we would have liked to stop and listen to you but what we did hear was fantastic. More importantly though all of our guests have commented on just how brilliant you were-apparently people kept thinking that it was a cd being played you were that good. I also heard from someone that you re-tuned your guitar just so that you could play their request! People also commented on your sense of humour (apparently the Simpsons theme tune made it in somewhere!) and how much you seemed to enjoy what you were doing which in turn made everyone else enjoy it. Punam and I were trying to think of the next thing we could do to get you to play at so that we could actually sit and watch you this time!

Anyway, a huge thanks once again-you were fantastic and really added a lot to the day. We would have no hesitations in recommending you.

-Jonathan and Punam October 2013

Shakeout played at our birthday party last week and were absolutely brilliant. They put together a very suitable set and added a few ska numbers which we had talked about in advance.
Very accommodating, very pleasant and very talented. They were the perfect group for our occasion.
Thanks lads

-Brian & Caroline

Alex. Thanks to yourself and the lads for setting up a great evening.. Brilliant set, everyone shouting about how good you were. Really appreciated the effort on the new songs.
Good luck to you all

-Brian and Carol Oct 2013

Alex performed solo and with Shakeout for our wedding and both performances were absolutely fantastic! All of or guests loved the band's evening set and we were so impressed with their talents and they were also the nicest of guys.
