Shakatak – Live In Lockdown

178011807_10161154682159012_5002368578132032228_nOn Sept 20th 2020 the band Shakatak performed a virtual gig from the Hideaway in Streatham. A venue they’ve played many times with so many good memories. It was the first time they have seen each other for 6 months so that alone was great but it was such a treat to be able to play together again albeit with no audience which was a strange vibe.

As it turned out the house engineer Cliff Scott recorded the show and was kind enough to send to Bill Sharpe the audio files and from that they have created a live album from that night. The CD is called “Live in Lockdown” and accompanying this recording are 8 reworked versions of Shakatak songs that Jill and Bill have done over the last year and featured on Facebook.

It will be released on Secret Records June 25th as a CD and also on all digital platforms.
