Review: The Natchez Shakers

The Natchez Shakers
“Shaker Hymns:  Sacred Songs No. 2”
(Thorp Records)

The nine-piece Natchez Shakers orchestrate an album along the lines of a multi-musical sing along type of rock and roll.  Some bands have been able to have success doing this and The Natchez Shakers may not be too different from those bands.  Many, if not all, of the common elements seem to be there.  Not all of the songs have the same exact feel either, granted there is somewhat of a pigeonholing present that they have not escaped, but there are parts of each track that stand alone on the album which is great, that diversity can keep the average listener interested.
