All Shook Up Band January 2010

All Shook Up

Ukulele is a revolutionary art form. And, perhaps, no other group represents and approaches that statement more fearlessly than the All Shook Up band from Santa Cruz, California.

Keeping the fabulous songs of the Fifties alive and vital with a fresh and new perspective using ukuleles, kazoos, and blended vocal arrangements, Carolee Burrows (bandleader), Judy Plicka (lead ukulele), Beth Zimmermann (keyboards & harp), Mickey Tomlinson (bass), Pete Campbell (percussion), Vince Comella (guitar), Bill Coombs, Kathleen Middleton, Cherie Fisher, Rudy Leon, Louise Kioski, Barbara Sonnenshine, and Pat Tracy continue to forge ahead into new territories.

Although extremely innovative, All Shook Up are also keen on preserving the essence of the songs themselves while remaining accessible. Their release “We’re All Shook Up!” recorded live by David Egan at the Rio Theatre represents the band’s favorite songs. If you like to dance and sing to the songs of Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, LaVern Baker, Johnny Mathis, Chuck Berry, and all the great artists from the Fifties, All Shook Up shows are not to be missed.
