WHY WE LIKE EM': The fresh, Southern Americana Rock sounds of Big Mama Shakes, is likable and fun, and it makes us feel nostalgic. Their commanding stage presence and originality is a reminder of the Rock Stars of yore, and that Rock Stars still exist in 2017. Influenced by Springsteen, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison and CCR, these boys have carved out a unique niche in the modern Rock n' Roll genre.
