Fantastic Shakers

The third week of September, 1978, was marked the beginning of an era, the formation of THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS, known as the “South’s Finest Show Band.” Since the inception of the band, the 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 Shakers to the top of the Carolinas musical groups.

This combination of experience and longevity has allowed THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS to possess a level of versatility few other 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 a PARTY!  The fun starts at the first note and doesn’t stop until the last.  A performance by THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS is not just a party, it is an EVENT!

Through these years, there have been many memorable engagements, including featured performances at the Grand National Dance Championships in Atlanta, GA on three occasions, the Lincoln Center in New York City (Hot Summer Nights Dance Fest), and the American Bop Association Convention in Cincinnati, OH on two occasions. This exhibits their appeal outside the Carolinas. Also, there have been performances with many national artists including the Beach Boys (for WBT Radio’s 50th anniversary), the Kingsport, TN Funfest with KC and the Sunshine Band and appearances also with the Four Tops, Jan and Dean and many more.  WBTV was proud to host Spring Fest with The Shakers three different years with over 70,000 people in attendance. Forty thousand fans have attended the Carolina Beach Blast in Carolina Beach Festival with THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS as headliners. The Shakers were host to the grand opening of the Men’s Apparel Mart in Charlotte with Vice President George Bush as special guest. There have been many other special appearances such as the gubernatorial inauguration with SC Governor Carroll Campbell. The list goes on and on…

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 Hall of Fame.

This Shakers’ carry a state of the art JBL P.A. that is powered by over 16,000 watts of QSC amplifiers. The lighting system features 16,000 watts of power controlled by NEL multiplex controllers. An ultraquartz spotlight is used to highlight the floorshow. This flexibility allows them to accommodate any size event from a small reception to a large outdoor event.

So, you say “what makes The Shakers different?” Personality! Fun! Charisma! From start to finish, an engagement with THE FANTASTIC SHAKERS is one big party. Don’t misunderstand, the music is great, but The Shakers are here for you to have a good time. The boys will keep you entertained from start to finish.

Special attention is given to appearance, with over $80,000 spent on custom-made wardrobing. Tuxedos are always available for the formal occasion.

What really separates The Shakers from other Carolina-based “beach” groups? The “daddy” frontman. Bo Schronce, without a doubt, is recognized as one of the finest singer-entertainers to ever hit the stage. Bo constantly works the crowd with his zany personality and powerful voice.
