Mississippi Shakedown is a Band with a minimum of FUSS and a maximum of EFFECT.
A 4-piece unit led by Blues charged SLIDE GUITAR, with a "Don't Bore Us, Get to the Chorus" attitude!
With influence from the deep south, these guys have heart. This band was not created to play in a restaurant.
Fronted by Mississippi Jeff Cripps, three times Australian Blues Music Awards: Producer Of The Year on slide guitar and vocals, with Wayne Leffler on Mandolin, Harp, Guitar and Vocals, the Band is driven by John Gannon on bass with Derek Smith on drums in the engine room!!
With GRAND performances at the Goulburn, Thredbo, Launceston, Newcastle, Forth Valley, Junee, Gosford, Davistown and Sydney Blues Festivals, and hundreds of gigs in Sydney, Perth, Tasmania, Canberra and the East Coast, it has been proven without a shadow of a doubt, Mississippi Shakedown never fails to please an audience, whether it be an audience of Blues Aficionados, or Joe Public…
Mississippi Shakedown is the REAL DEAL!!!
