“An evening with the Milford St Shakers involves much more than enjoying the music of one of the state’s tightest and most accomplished soul and R&B bands – it’s a whole lot of fun.”
– Peter Hancock | Weekend Notes

Front woman Mia Matthiessen and her upbeat, high energy 11-piece band feature; James Vinciullo on bass, Dominic D’Leno on drums, Andy Jarvis on guitar, Austin Salisbury on keyboards, Robert Bresland on trumpet, Mark Sprogowski on tenor sax, Jemima Mills on baritone sax and backing vocalists Taonga Thomson-Lawrence and Roera Mako.
