Join us for the Springstown Shakers – modern sound with an old blues feel.
The Springstown Shakers is a Colorado Springs based band that formed in 2019. Currently performing as a trio, the band consists of Kevin Wright on guitar and lead vocals, Tony Letizia on the drums, and Chris Moulton on the bass.
Before making Colorado his home, Kevin spent 12 years in Nashville, TN developing his craft in songwriting, guitar and vocals while getting to play with some of the best talent in town. Relocating from the state of Nevada, Tony has worked with numerous bands in the local scenes in Reno and Las Vegas ranging from rock, funk, country, R&B, and blues.
Chris has been a resident of Colorado since 2009. Originally from New Hampshire, he brings a groove that was developed from his influences in rock, blues, and funk. Together they bring a certain sound to the blues with twists of swamp, rock, funk and soul.
If southern fried chicken had a sound it would sound like The Springstown Shakers. Greasy with lots of flavor.
The Springstown Shakers will be taking the road to Memphis in January to compete in the International Blues Challenge. In order to compete in the International Blues Challenge a band must be sponsored by a local blues society by competing and winning in a local competition. In October, The Springstown Shakers competed in The Mile High Blues Society challenge in Denver and took home first place, opening the door to represent the blues society in Memphis.
The 37th annual International Blues Challenge will take place on January 18th-22. During this time, talent from across the United States and even other countries will make their way to Beale Street to compete in the challenge. Since it’s beginning, the International Blues Challenge has seen notable talent competing with the likes of Susan Tedeschi, Tommy Castro, Albert Cummings, Danielle Nichole, Sean Costello, Michael Burks, and many more. It continues to be a catalyst in launching careers in the Blues.
