The Shake-‘Ems really are trying their best. They’re giving it a red hot Kiwi hot go, bless them. They’ve got great energy, and it looks like they’re having fun. Some of them learned to play their instruments before joining this band, and it shows. Performing energetic interpretations of standards from the New Orleans tradition and and American songbook, as well as original compositions inspired by the era, they promise to serve up a spicy jambalaya full of mystery meat as part of Winter Deco at Hawke's Bay Jazz Club.
