Let the good times roll with the Milford Street Shakers, Western Australia’s spectacular 11-piece soul band.
 
These charismatic cats live and breathe the 1960s, when big bands ruled the dance halls and gospel, rhythm and blues and jazz music converged to inspire some of the most soulful tunes of all time.
 
‘An 11-piece band is not just a trio playing in the corner, it’s a whole wall of sound.’
 
Frontwoman Mia Matthiessen and her world-class band deliver epic renditions of beloved soul and Motown classics that make it impossible to stand still, infusing joy into sophisticated celebrations.
 
Elegant like Mad Men, exuberant like Palm Springs and with trademark camaraderie, the Milford Street Shakers never miss a beat, pumping out hit after hit with stunning vocals, pulsating rhythms and howling horns.
 
‘From the moment the band members walk onto the stage, you know you’re in for a good time. They are cool, charismatic and play with high energy and joy. In fact, it’s hard to say who is having more fun – the band or audience?’
 
Make no mistake, this isn’t background music – it’s get-up-and-dance music. Enquire now to make your next celebration unforgettable.
 
‘Wow! These guys are a bunch of crazy talented and entertaining musicians. The enjoyment they find in the making of music is contagious.’
