Rochester, MN-based roots rock band Thomas and the Shakes are known for their authentic blend of Rock, R&B, Folk, and Reggae sound. Formed in 2013 by Thomas Wescott (guitar and vocals) and Garrett Kolb (drums), the duo recorded and self-released their acoustic EP, All My Favorite Things Are Free, before recruiting Mark Walsh (Sax/Flute) to complete the lineup. The expansion resulted in the bigger, more energetic sound heard on their debut album, Mind Your Time. Dynamic rhythms, laid back melodies, rich vocal harmonies and emotionally charged lyrics make up the 2017 ten-song release. As they continue to expand their catalog of original music, the group works to cultivate their mid-west following and bring their music to a wider audience.
