Echoes of American Roots Music that inspired the band ring clear, but Shady Street stands on its own; thoughtful songwriting filtered through the showmanship of a traveling circus. Behold the birth of Big Top Soul.
"A cross between The Band with the Toussaint Horns and the late, great keyboard-driven New Orleans groove unit Papa Grows Funk, the Americana soul of the Shady Street Show Band is musically sweet, lyrically rich and rhythmically enthralling." - Bob Makin, mycentraljersey.com
Shady Street is currently working on their new EP, due out sometime in the spring of 2018. Their 2016 debut album release “Revelry” was featured on mycentraljersey.com and The Aquarian. They are also listed on nj.com’s list of “35 N.J. Bands you Must Hear in 2017.”
