Wilkes, the Shack Shakers are a four-man wrecking crew from the South whose explosive interpretations of the blues, punk, rock and country have made fans, critics and legions of potential converts into true believers.

The 99s

It was the Whit weekend 2007 in Saddleworth, England; two young men in their early 20s dressed in stolen sheep costumes decided to have a wrestle and the outcome - The 99s. The first month was spent writing a set, practicing and recording demos. James and Johnny instantly formed a good songwriting partnership and Adams van had three seats - it was perfect. MUTV hailed the band as their favourite act of 2008 as voted by the public, and the band were soon filmed playing a live session and interview at Manchester’s XFM with the legendary Clint Boon.
