About Shag

Shag is a musical group, a "band of brothers," four guys who exude a magical energy when they perform as a unit. Shag pushes their capabilities as a four-piece outfit to the absolute limit while appealing to the broadest possible spectrum of humanity. Yes, they are primarily a cover band... one of many out there. So what makes Shag so special? What sets them apart from the typical run-of-the-mill, garden-variety, you-see-one-you've-seen-'em-all cover band? Well...

REPERTOIRE: Shag has well over 400 different songs that they can pull off on any given night, and the list continues to grow. Most bands follow a strict regimen of set lists each time they play, with little to no deviation. If you happen to catch Shag on two consecutive nights, it's unlikely that you'll hear them repeat more than a couple songs. It's not uncommon to hear Shag play a selection of oldies from Elvis or Buddy Holly, country chestnuts by Johnny Cash or Eddie Rabbit, mullet-inspired arena rock by Styx or Journey, R&B hits from James Brown or Stevie Wonder, one-hit wonders like "Brandy" or "Black Betty," 80s new-wave late-80s hair/leather metal, early-90s jam-band favorites by Phish or Dave Matthews Band, later-90s rockers, classics by The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Police, The Eagles, David Bowie, Tom Petty, Queen, AC/DC, The Cars, Pink Floyd, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Paul Simon, Led Zeppelin... the list literally goes on and on.

Shag is really doin’ it right!

Shag was an excellent choice from the moment we booked them till their last song at our wedding. We got so many comments on how fun and rockin the music was. They knew just what to play to get ... Read more everyone dancing. If you’re wedding guests love old rock songs, soul and a little bit of blue grass, they’ll have a great time. From James Brown to the Beatles we often forgot it was a cover band playing and not the real thing! Dave was also very responsive via email before the event and was a flexible MC for the speeches, etc. everything went smoothly, even considering the venue’s small band space. Thanks Shag!!

100% Yes, book them.

Dave and the band are an incredibly talented group. Not only do they play their songs note for note, they really know how to work the room and put on a good show. The dance floor was packed the entire ... Read more night of our wedding, and we owe it to Shag for putting on such a solid performance. Music ranged from the 1960s-90s. Guests kept coming up to me asking who the band was and where I found them! I'll also mention that their professionalism is top notch as well. Communication was easy and responsive. They had a couple stage/spot lights that helped with first dances, microphones for speeches, and just made everything such a breeze for the evening. Shag is doin' it right!!! Love these guys.

Exceeded expectations

Shag did not disappoint. Although I've only ever seen them at shows in bars or other gigs, and not at a wedding, I was pleasantly surprised how they adapted to the crowd. It was a different show than ... Read more what I was used to, and it was likely a good thing! Meaning, they knew what would get a wide variety of ages on the dance floor. We got dozens of compliments from guests that said they LOVED the band. We loved them too. They not only provided entertainment, but were able to take on some of the emceeing needed for the big day. I was rest assured that they had it, and they sure did. I would hire them in a heart beat. Don't question it, just DO IT.
