Getting close! The Shanks summer starts at San Jose Muni on July 30, and ends at the finish line of the Iron Man Triathlon in San Jose del Cabo Mexico on October 25th! COME ON! That's enough notice to get you to Cabo or one of the other shows, no?? See the performance dates section and come see us. We'd love to have you... Lots of new material to play with!
The Shanks are a premier classic rock cover band in the San Francisco Bay Area. We play all sorts of venues from opening act for big concerts, to festivals, private parties, corporate parties, and pajama parties (no kidding, we played one!). We have recently been honored as winners, and for a second time as runners-up, of the KFOX 98.5 "Last Band Standing" competition hosted by Greg Kihn. This competition seeks to identify the best cover bands in the SF Bay area. We play songs from Van Halen, Pat Benetar, Foreigner, ZZ Top, Heart, Fleetwood Mac, Santana, Bad Company, The Pretenders, Queen, Journey, Free, The Rolling Stones, Grace Potter, Clapton, and Elvis (both of them!) just to name a few. Drop us a line and let's get your party started!!
