The Flatfoot Shakers are a 4 piece traditional Rockabilly outfit hailing from Melbourne, Australia.
They originally formed around April '97 but soon shuffled the lineup before recording their self titled debut album in September 1999 on Preston records in Melbourne. The album was released on both CD and 10” vinyl format (titled "Chicka Boom").
The Flatfoot Shakers have played and toured extensively across Australia, including festivals in Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and the big one "Wintersun" in Queensland. In July/August 2000 the Shakers toured across Europe playing festivals in Sweden, Belguim, Germany, Switzerland and the Cruise Inn in Holland. Other highlights include the Rockabilly Rave in England (March 2001) and "Viva Las Vegas” in Las Vegas, Nevada (April 2001 and again in 2005).
Their influences stretch across a wide variety of roots music including Country, Western Swing, 50s Rock'n'Roll and most of all that classic 50s Rockabilly sound.
