Biography:


THE SHOTS are from New Jersey and perform regularly in the New York tri-state area.  Their unique blend of


instrumentation and musical styles come together in an unforgettable versatile show.


THE SHOTS believe in keeping their audiences entertained while providing great party music.  They like to keep true


to the original groove of the covers they play, but are not afraid to add a "twist" to their music by incorporating some


world instruments such as the Australian Didgeradoo into some of their funky tunes, along with bagpipes during


Ramones songs and throwing out Mardi Gras beads to the crowd during a New Orleans medley.  THE SHOTS make


old favorites sound fresh and exciting while involving the audiences. 





Awards:

2006 Billboard Song Contest winner - "The Rasta Piper" 2nd place world music.

 

 


Influences:

THE SHOTS are a high-profile band with a sound of their own.  THE SHOTS' influences are simply great music by great musicians. Everything from James Brown to AC/DC. And they prove it by segueing from "Sex Machine" into "Ocean." THE SHOTS put everything they have into every show. They are entertainers and use props and humor to make their sets exciting and fun for their audiences.  A SHOTS' performance is a high energy, nonstop party!




Releases:

In 2015 THE SHOTS released their CD - "What Do You Mean There's No More Guinness?"  It features a great mix of originals and covers done THE SHOTS way!




Press:

“The Shots are like a 100 proof snort of Scottish and/or Australian instrumentation with a smooth classic rock back taking the edge off. ”
