The Shakedown Band
Imagine this, a great band playing live music at a square dance being called by four great callers. Sound good? Now imagine that the callers are the musicians!
No need to IMAGINE, The Shakedown Band is a REALITY. Featuring Mike Haworth on lead guitar and banjo, Ty Barnes on drums, Vic Kaaria on guitar, Pat Carnathan on keyboard, Charlie Robertson on bass.

Here's an article that orginally appeared in the December 2010 issue of the San Diego Callers' Association's publication, ChoreoNotes.
Live Music (by guest caller Pat Carnathan)
As professional callers most of us call a majority of our dances to prerecorded music. We travel; we’re calling in a variety of places, so lugging around four guys and their instruments just isn’t feasible. Few things can match the excitement of calling with a group of talented musicians providing your music live on stage with you. It’s an experience that stays with you long after you’ve left the stage. To make it a positive event, though, many things have to come together perfectly. In harmony, if you will!
