You may have already heard of the Shakers, but if you haven’t, here’s a quick rundown of the band.
The group formed in the 1970s in New York City after a friend of the brothers, George and Michael, met with a producer at Columbia Records, who saw a potential hit.
After hearing the songs, the two brothers decided to create their own music and were able to launch their own label, Shakerland Records, in 1984.
The Shakers went on to release more than 1,000 albums and hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, making them the most successful independent rock band in the country.
The group also produced a number of high-profile albums, including 1987’s Shakin’ at the Top and 1991’s Shaker.
In the 1990s, Shakers were active in various creative endeavors, including a number one hit with 1989’s “Dancing with the Stars.”
Their breakthrough hit, “Ain’t Got No Problems,” was also a top seller.
They also released a number two hit, 1991’s “Shaking on a Dime.”
After touring the country for years, Shakes hit the road again in the mid-2000s to help promote their upcoming second album, titled Shakers: The Movie.
The album was a commercial success, selling over 15 million copies in its first week on sale.
The Shakers returned in 2018 with their sixth studio album, Shaking at the Times.
The record was a huge hit and earned Shakers a number-one spot on the US Billboard charts.
The band later released their eighth album, The Shaker’s Guide to Happiness, which was a critical and commercial success.
They released Shakers’ final album, 2017’s Shaking, in 2018.
The final album of the group, titled the Shaker Album, was released in 2018, and was a number four hit.
