The Shake Ups In Beach City!

For those who may be wondering what the band has been up to, The Shake Ups are working on TWO new musical projects for release in 2017! One will be a My Little Pony-inspired album to follow up last year's popular Rock Candy. Prior to that venture, the band will realize a project inspired by another fandom that has received similar pop culture accolades to MLP: Steven Universe! The Shake Ups In Beach City will fuse the band's signature power-pop stylings with elements from the Steven Universe series to create a brand new collection of family-friendly musical gems. The Shake Ups In Beach City will debut in the spring of 2017. Check out a teaser trailer HERE!


The Shake Ups Play The Beatles!

For one night only, on Friday, October 7th, The Shake Ups will perform live as THE BEATLES! 'Flashback Friday,' as the event is being billed, is an evening of sixties music at Indianapolis nightclub Radio Radio, also featuring Sugar Moon Rabbit (as The Doors) and The Vallures (as a 60's R&B revue).
