Shack is an eclectic group of veteran musicians who don't remember the 60's because they were there.
If you’re looking for a party, head on down to the Love Shack!
Love Shack features members from Soul Express, Fleetwood Dreams and the late, great White Rabbit. The band plays classic hits from the 1960s, ‘70s , ‘80s and beyond that are guaranteed to have you dancing and singing along, originally recorded by such diverse artists as the Beatles, Steely Dan, Linda Ronstadt, David Bowie, Huey Lewis and, of course, the B-52s.
It’s music that appeals to a wide audience and is the perfect fit for nightclubs, private parties, weddings, fairs and festivals. Love Shack’s members have appeared repeatedly at some of the region’s finest venues, including the Fraze Pavilion for the Performing Arts, Stubbs Park Amphitheatre, Kettering Holiday at Home, Centerville’s Americana Festival, local country clubs and the legendary Gilly’s nightclub.
The members all are seasoned musicians who bring top-notch musicianship and professionalism to the table.
Mike Baumann is the electrifying guitarist in the popular White Rabbit, which disbanded in early 2018.
He is joined in Love Shack by the dynamic singer Toni Vest, another White Rabbit alum who also performs with Spill the Wine.
Keyboardist and spellbinding vocalist Kathy Simpson has been entertaining local audiences since the 1970s. She also plays with the Fleetwood Mac tribute band Fleetwood Dreams and, with Toni Vest, in the duo The Marthas.
Love Shack also includes three members of Dayton’s hot ‘60s and ‘70s soul revue, Soul Express: Ken McCall on wailin’ sax, guitar and vocals, and the swingin’ rhythm section of Tom Beyerlein (bass and vocals) and drummer Phil Fleming. Ken was a professional musician in California for a dozen years before joining Soul Express, which was founded by Tom. Phil’s lengthy resume includes a stint with Clarence “Satch” Satchell of The Ohio Players.
