Sal Valentine & The Babyshakes are an ensemble steeped in the tradition and timbre of rhythm ‘n’ blues, who perform their lead singer’s heart-on-sleeve, singular, aggressive and entirely original material. Widely regarded as one of the nest acts in the country, Sal Valentine & The Babyshakes is made up of ten accomplished musicians from as diverse a selection of backgrounds as one could hope for: pop, hip-hop, jazz, punk, classical and hard rock.

The band format is modeled on the early ensembles fronted by Ray Charles: two female singers and Valentine sharing lead duties and lush harmonies, with support from a roaring quartet of horns and an aggressive, organic rhythm section featuring double bass, piano/organ and drums.

The Babyshakes are: Ivan Luketina- Johnston, Chelsea Prastiti, Siobhan Grace, Graham Stoddard, Benjamin Sinclair, Elizabeth Stokes, Callum Passells, Jonathan Pearce, Cameron Sangster, Cameron McArthur.
