Soul Shake

Soul Shake.

When two coworkers, singer Kenneth Boutelle and drummer Bob Carter, both moved here to work for a local audio/visual provider and discovered that they had each been part of the Hollywood and Detroit Blues scenes, the obvious answer was to start a band. After cruising local blues jams they found harmonica player Rick Zuniga, guitarist David Hurdle and bassist Alan Smith and Soul Shake was born.

Emphasizing the raw, rhythmic sounds of the West Side Chicago blues scene, Soul Shake has been winning local audiences over to the authentic sounds of artists like Magic Sam, Otis Rush, Eddie Boyd and Albert King.
