Shag is a musical group, a “band of brothers,” four guys who exude a magical energy when they perform as a unit. Shag pushes their capabilities as a four-piece outfit to the absolute limit while appealing to the broadest possible spectrum of humanity. Yes, they are primarily a cover band… one of many out there. So what makes Shag so special? What sets them apart from the typical run-of-the-mill, garden-variety, you-see-one-you’ve-seen-’em-all cover band? Well…

REPERTOIRE: Shag has well over 400 different songs that they can pull off on any given night, and the list continues to grow. Most bands follow a strict regimen of set lists each time they play, with little to no deviation. If you happen to catch Shag on two consecutive nights, it’s unlikely that you’ll hear them repeat more than a couple songs. It’s not uncommon to hear Shag play a selection of oldies from Elvis or Buddy Holly, country chestnuts by Johnny Cash or Eddie Rabbit, mullet-inspired arena rock by Styx or Journey, R&B hits from James Brown or Stevie Wonder, one-hit wonders like “Brandy” or “Black Betty,” 80s new-wave late-80s hair/leather metal, early-90s jam-band favorites by Phish or Dave Matthews Band, later-90s rockers, classics by The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Police, The Eagles, David Bowie, Tom Petty, Queen, AC/DC, The Cars, Pink Floyd, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Paul Simon, Led Zeppelin… the list literally goes on and on.
