Shakes Fear & the Skeleton Gang are South East Queensland’s hottest horror-blues quintet. Immortal, time travelling hobo, Shakes Fear, is joined by his atrocious associates, The Skeleton Gang, to form a combination guaranteed to get your bones rattling. Boasting an inventory of originals about disease, sanity slippage, monsters and murder, as well as a healthy repertoire of blues and rock 'n' roll covers; you’d be a bonehead to miss them.
Keep your eyes peeled, Shakes Fear & the Skeleton Gang are busy preparing their first release...
