Streetlight Shakers is a piano driven band dedicated to creating an exciting infusion of rock, soul, and blues. Switching effortlessly from rowdy dance grooves to contemplative ballads, Streetlight Shakers delivers sophisticated musicality and thought-provoking lyrics in a unique pop package. Using rich harmony, soaring melody, and a driving rhythm they create songs that tell powerful stories with messages that are universally relatable.
In 2019 the band released their debut EP “A Light In The Dark” and quickly garnered local acclaim, being awarded “Best New Band 2019” by readers of the Hartford Courant and taking home first prize in Infinity Hall’s Big Stage Open Mic Competition. They have brought their music to stages throughout the Northeast region and won critical acclaim from indie music blogs, music curators, and listeners.
The band began 2020 by heading into the studio to work with producers Rob Griffith and Andy Sorenson on a new single called "The Story", now available on all major streaming services.
“Few bands show the combination of skill and passion that Connecticut's Streetlight Shakers do…The elegant vocals of Jeff Boratko lead the way past intricate basslines and finely-crafted drum patterns, telling a story easy to relate to, easy to imagine.” - Rene Cobar, The Deli Magazine
