    Founded in 2012, Camarillo, Ca. based Shaky Feelin’ played SOhO Music Venue, Santa Barbara, Ca. March 28 to a warm welcome and great crowd. Influenced by Phish, Rush, Disco Biscuits and Sublime, they brought their eclectic music styling’s to the live stage in a big way.  
    The show marked the debut of new bass player Jeff Hiller. He did not disappoint dropping chunky bass lines that helped fuel the high energy jams. Franklin Murphy was having a blast flying up and down the keys and filling in on vocals. Normally Shaky Feelin features a percussionist as well as a drummer but Paul Menchaca filled in tight, snappy drum rhythms creating the backbone energy to feed the rest of the band. The evening was highlighted by Mark Masson’s soaring improvisational guitar solos. His unique energetic styling’s with reggae laced rhythms and hyper sonic leads keep everyone in the groove.
Emerging from Ventura County’s fertile music scene, this powerhouse of a quintet is most noticeable for their eye-catching grooves and shredding guitar solos. Shaky Feelin’ is a Southern California jam band mixing the elements of high-energy rock, reggae, bluegrass and funk to create the most memorable live show you’ve yet to see! They draw inspiration from bands like Phish, the Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, the Disco Biscuits, Tea Leaf Green and The Beatles.
The creativity of the band allows for amazing song writing with a “let’s never play it the same way twice” attitude. Being in the moment allows everyone in Shaky Feelin’ to create their own unique role. With no fear of improvisational experimentation on stage, true communication and strong musicianship this band has the ability to create a lasting impression.  Shaky Feelin’ shows lend a positive high-energy journey which quickly gets their fans into the groove! You’ll be sure to leave their shows with that… Shaky Feelin’!
