Nothing better than playing and singing our music....
ABOUT US AND OUR MUSIC
A Short Introduction to The Long Shakes
In 2017, three local musicians had a chance meeting in the streets of Riverdale when Dave and Deborah saw Eli walking his dog, Pepper. They began talking (the humans, not the dog) and decided then and there to form The Long Shakes, a band best known for its shimmering vocals and jangly electric guitars. They feature Deborah and Dave sharing lead vocals and harmonies, punctuated by the Eli’s signature clean lead guitar lines (with Deborah’s percussion and Dave’s rhythm guitar). The band plays an eclectic mix of singer-songwriter originals and Roots Americana from modern tunes through the past 50 years. The Long Shakes (named after Deborah’s tambourine technique) can be seen and heard performing in Manhattan and the Bronx from the coolest downtown venues to local farmer’s markets.
