Shank to perform at The Perfect Pig in Gulf Place on Oct. 19th from 6 til 9:00pm. Come out for a fun night with dinner, cocktails and live music in the heart of South Walton, Fl.
Originally hailing from the classic city streets of Athens, GA, here SHANK cut his teeth in her many hallowed halls and dingy beer joints. “For years i’ve written, performed and lived this life… it’s what I love to do.” Creating a brand of acoustic-soul with a little gonzo honky-tonk and early psych elements thrown in for exploratory purposes, SHANK brings his unique nylon-string guitar style and pours his soul out to all who listen. Calling Santa Rosa Beach, FL home for the better part of 10 years, he currently also plays bucket and percussion for the self branded ‘Beach Punk’ power 3 piece “The Courtyard Saints” with Mike Whitty (Thompson Twins, Pale Blue Dot) and John Mark Turner (Blues Old Stand, Wildlife Specials). SHANK’s self-titled debut was released in 1999 and his single “Bourbon Jim” was featured on Ghostmeat Records “Athfest 2002” compilation. 2013 saw The Courtyard Saints in the studio with grammy nominated producer Andrija Tokic at the helm for their unabashedly lo-fi debut album “Sunshine State.”
