Thank You from Shake! Magazine.

Hello Music Lovers,

Do you like music made by musicians working together? Do you prefer that to show-biz dance spectacles masquerading as music? Then you’ve come to the right place. Shake! Magazine is the site for Rock music and its rich history.

Thanks for looking in on us. There are many exciting things in store for those who wish to explore. Take a little trip with us. Click on the different stories, pictures and reviews and get transported to a world of jams, grooves and creativity. We’ll keep changing things on a regular basis so remember to return frequently.

After a two year hiatus, Shake! Magazine is back as an online E-zine. We can be found at both and   After more than 10 years of printing Nashville’s Rock magazine and distributing it throughout the metropolitan area, we closed shop to reassess our options. After so many requests to resume what Music City musicians regarded as their favorite rag, we’re back. And the best way to move forward and reach as many readers as possible was to take it to the internet.

Warren Ells (Layout, Design) and I have a new partner in this venture – Dave Carew (Managing Editor). You can follow Dave’s celebrated blog here. We’re excited about the opportunity to continue writing about great rock musicians without having to personally drive all over the Nashville area to distribute printed magazines. And better yet - we now are available at the click of a mouse to anywhere in the world. Remember to “Like” us on Facebook.

We love to get feedback. So please don’t hesitate to let us know your thoughts. We’re always looking forward to hearing from you readers.

Editor in Chief
