MEET THE BANDRhythm and blues to rattle the bones. Sweet soul music to set you free. Grin wider. Groove harder. So goes the mantra of The Shady Street Show Band.
Shady Street has risen to become one of the Jersey Shore’s top shows to see, often including up to a 9 piece band on stage with a full horn section. Among their achievements include winning the Asbury Park Music Award for best soul act in 2014 and 2015 as well as a stint as the house band for the Stone Pony, one of New Jersey’s premier music venues.
The Shady Street Show Band’s original EP, An Almighty Noise, was released in July 2013. Their second album, Together at Last, a split with good friends and punk rockers Hot Blood, was released in August of 2015. Shady Street’s first LP, Revelry, was released at the House of Independents in Asbury Park on May 27th, 2016.

(The Shady Street Show Band) follows the traditional pathway of bands such as Supertramp, Tower Of Power, Joe Cocker, Randy Newman, The Band and many, many more. (They are a) group that understands the restrained elegance of a respectful nod to the past while stopping short of mimeographing those monstrous pioneers. Instead, they embrace influential, razor sharp basics and use them to plough their very own roads to glory. Cut straight out of a complex and commune-styled imagination, Ryan Gregg and Zac Silva forge ahead into the wonderful worlds of R&B, soul, and Americana muscle. - The Aquarian
