Since the formation of the band in 1978, The Fantastic Shakers have performed over 6,000 engagements including over 400 wedding receptions, 700 conventions, and clubs too numerous to mention. They have performed from New York to Florida and all throughout the Southeast. South Carolina's Grand Strand has become the band's summer home and their hit single "Myrtle Beach Days" catapulted The Fantastic Shakers to the top of the Carolinas musical groups. A combination of experience and longevity has allowed The Fantastic Shakers to possess a level of versatility few groups can match. With five lead vocalists and up to three horns, they can perform almost any style of music from up-tempo dance and rock to the smooth easy listening for the more subdued occasions. The music is great but what sets The Fantastic Shakers apart is the personality of the group. From start to finish every performance becomes party! The fun starts at the first note and does not stop until the last.
Through the years there have been many memorable engagements, including featured performances at the Grand National Dance Championships, the Lincoln Center, and the American Bop Association Convention. They have performed with many national artists including the Beach Boys, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Four Tops, Jan and Dean and many more! The Shakers have won many awards through the various beach music awards associations through the years. This list includes two-time show “Group of the Year”, three time “Album of the Year, and lead singer Bo Schronce has been named “Male Vocalist of the Year” on four different occasions as well as induction into the Beach Music Hall of Fame.
