With the rotating singers, it’s easy to play up the strengths of each singer and to the needs of each event or venue. Shirts and Skins is a modular band. What does that mean to you? It means Shirts and Skins can become as small as a five piece playing smaller clubs, or as big as a ten piece playing to thousands of people at a festival. It means we can swap out utility players to make the ultimate funk band with a full horn section, be a country band with a fiddle player or a pop band with sax and keyboards. It also means we can send the members that fit the event best. So if you need a country band...we send our members that know country best. If you want hard hitting rockers-we can send our members that have experience with metal, rock and punk. But how can we make sure the product stays at the same level of awesomeness? We practice together. We train together. We travel together and we have fun together. Everyone in our organization knows all of our arrangements, all the choreography and all the equipment. There is no need for subs when you have three guitar players (et all) that rehearse together for the same goal! A custom, high energy band for your event with absolutely no subs. Ever. You’ll be thrilled with Shirts and Skins, as this is a band that keeps the crowd singing and dancing all night.
