We love music festivals and live music.  As the Grateful Dead say, “Don’t tell me this town ain’t got no heart, you just gotta poke around.”  That’s the motto here at Shakedown News.  The heartbeat of every town is the music.  We’ll “poke around” for you and bring you news and reviews from big names as well as up and coming musicians.  Covering everything from small venue local artists to large music festivals Shakedown News wants to keep you in the know from a fans perspective!  We love the music, first!

Now Get Out There And Go Dance!
