The Shakey Ground band is built on its members having over 200 combined years of musical experience, live performances, touring, recording, song interpreting and writing original material. Each performance is infused with a wide range of musical influences combined with exciting original twists and diversions (as only this band can do) covering the songs of many legendary recording artists we all love.
Founded in Nov 2010 by local Jersey musicians, Shakey Ground features David Goldman/Drums, Boston R+R Hall of Famer, Vern Miller/Bass-Vocals, Matthias Raabe/Keys-Vocals, Steve Gorelick/Lead Vocals-Percussion, Brett Ollerenshaw/Sax-Vocals and Wayne Post/Lead Guitar-Vocals. Winners of the 2012 South Orange/Maplewood Battle of the Bands, Shakey Ground has played several times in Woodstock NY, at Maplewoodstock, and are regulars at McLynn’s, Springfield, NJ, The Gladstone Tavern, Hat City Kitchen and many other New Jersey venues. The band is dedicated to playing music off the beaten path, presenting some very challenging material to excite our followers, some now affectionately known as “The Shakey Ground Dancers.”
Shakey Ground features songs by: Jeff Beck, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, Little Feat, Prince, James Brown, Stevie Wonder, Sly & The Family Stone, Cee Lo Green, Bruno Mars, Steely Dan, Santana, Spencer Davis Group, and much more. We are a band of 6 “brothers” with a common goal to always improve with a shared vision and passion to play. If you love to dance, and love great music, you’ll love Shakey Ground!
