Your event deserves the best music – hire Shakedown Austin’s best variety cover band!

Your event deserves no less than the best!

Shakedown can play low volume, background music for networking events and dinner and then bring up the energy and volume for the rest of the party!

Shakedown is a dynamic band of talented musicians with decades of performing experience – clubs, theaters, community events, corporate functions, weddings, and other private celebrations.

By working closely with our clients, customizing our performance to meet their needs, we capture the essence of what a great party band should be! Whether the occasion calls for a high-energy performance or a laid-back vibe appropriate for a cocktail hour, dinner, or networking event, we have it covered.

When you book with Shakedown, not only do you get great music, you get a dedicated event manager who will walk you through the booking and planning steps and be your on-site go-to person during our performance.

During the planning and discovery stage, we gather vital information to make your vision a reality. We offer tips to optimize our performance and can handle most special song requests. If we can’t play it, we can add it to our recorded music playlist (recorded music is offered during band breaks).

During your event, you can expect our band to take the stage on time, appropriately attired, and ready to deliver a stellar performance. We provide a modern lighting and PA system that, in addition to powering the band, can be used for announcements, toasts, and recorded music on breaks. Our lead vocalists can take on the role of Master of Ceremonies if needed to ensure smooth transitions throughout your event.
