Legendary Shack Shakers

Sept. 21, 2017 8:30 p.m.

Extension Cord presents: Legendary Shack Shakers w/Wood Chickens and The Jukebox Romantics Described by guitar legend Jeff Beck as a cross between the Yardbirds and the Sex Pistols, Legendary Shack Shakers has obviously earned quite a name for itself. The bands hell-for-leather roadshow is infamous for its unique brand of Southern Gothic that is all-at-once irreverent, revisionist, soulful, dangerous, and fun. Led by their wildly charismatic, rail-thin frontman/blues-harpist, J.D. Wilkes, the Shack Shakers are a four-man wrecking crew from the South whose explosive interpretations of the blues, punk, rock and country have made fans, critics and legions of potential converts into true believers.

Venue Description:
A remnant of Bay View's northern Italian community, the first such enclave in the city, Club Garibaldi -- named for the great Italian patriot -- is also a reminder of the many mutual aid societies that Italian-American communities founded throughout America. Nowadays, few people make the connection anymore and Club Garibaldi became known as one of the must-hit spots on a south sider's night out, drawing glass tippers from as distant as South Milwaukee. Purchased by a former Points East Pub bartender, Club Garibaldi is becoming better known to East Siders, although many remember the gigs featuring local bands held in the spacious back room more than a decade ago. A friendly place with an honorable history, Club Garibaldi sits just across the Hoan Bridge making it a mere five-minute ride from downtown.
