A slick quartet of horns toting heavy licks make sure you bring your dancing shoes.
“If there’s one way to prep for a Sal Valentine and the Babyshakes gig – it’s to bring your dancing shoes.”
Widely regarded as one of the finest live acts in the country, Sal Valentine & The Babyshakes have twisted the fabric of musical time and lived to deliver you a curated selection of infectious and original rhythm and blues. Bandleader and songwriter Sal Valentine is framed by a slick quartet of horns toting heavy licks and a polished rhythm section comprised of piano, double bass and drums. Alongside the instrumentalists stand the foils to Sal Valentine: accomplished vocalists Chelsea Prastiti and Siobhan Grace. They are collectively named The Babyshakes, and have been declared by Valentine to be ‘Auckland’s Number 1 Band’.
The Babyshakes include:
Rebecca Mason Melrose
Sir. Benjamin Sinclair
Sir Jonathan Pearce the Great
