Fantastic Shakers bring musical stylings to NC Blueberry Festival

Published: Thursday, June 19, 2014 at 01:17 PM.

Q: For your shows, you are known for mixing it up a bit and playing notable songs from other artists like Elvis Presley and The Temptations. Is spanning genres just another way of making your performances entertaining?

A: We are known for our beach music, but the kind of show we put on in Myrtle Beach may not be the same show we put on at the Blueberry Festival because we have a more diverse crowd. There will be people at the festival who like beach music, but there will also be people who want to dance. You have to mix it up when you play the beach festivals.

Q: Although you play a variety of music, does being rooted in beach music make it the favorite genre of the band?

A: I’ll say this. Beach music has been good to us, but we like playing whatever makes people smile and whatever makes people dance. We probably won’t do the chicken dance, but we will hit a little bit of everything else.

The Fantastic Shakers will perform at 6 p.m. June 21 on the Blueberry Festival Main Stage (Courthouse Square)
