Pepper Shakers - Great Band! - An Eventective User from Mississauga, ON

What a band! I am a musician myself, attended a wedding reception these guys played. They had the dance floor packed. The song selection was excellent, the volume was perfect, the energy high, the vocals and harmonies were fabulous. You would swear it was a larger band by the fullness of the sound. They catered to the crowd which was older, but even the younger set was boppin' to the classics the Pepper Shakers cranked out. Highly recommend for any type of function but especially if the crowd digs, oldies, variety, party hits, classic country - these guys seem to know it all. I chatted with them afterward, they say their song list pushes 400 tunes! Highly recommended!

Great (Little) Band! - An Eventective User from Toronto

You would never know this is a 3-piece band (guitar-bass-drums) from their large sound. I've seen them twice - a large venue and one quite small, and they deliver on each end; great at adjusting to suit the needs of the gig! The large repertoire is no joke; they shift gears effortlessly it seems, from style to style; the times I saw them, once was almost strictly old country, the other time, all the classic rock covers you could name... Great tight band, highly recommend.
