Shakey Graves Announces Tour To South Africa

Shakey Graves South African Tour

Shakey Graves heads to Cape Town and Joburg for the first time this Easter Weekend!

Austin-based Shakey Graves first garnered attention with his one-man-band set up, which originated after he grew tired of having to borrow kick drums and high hats in order to perform. His solution consisted of a modified suitcase that functions as both a kick drum and a tambourine stand built by a close friend. Most of his 2011 self-released debut album Roll the Bones features him playing solo.

His unique style of performance led to him being asked to be the official “busker” for the Edward Sharpe and Mumford & Sons Railroad Revival Tour in 2011, where he played music for patrons entering each venue.

By 2014 Graves had his trio band set up and made their TV debut on “Conan”, along with performances on the “Late Show with David Letterman” and “Late Night with Seth Meyers”.
