Imagine a smorgasbord of Cab Calloway, circus sideshow, cabaret, Hee Haw, and Robert Johnson served up at Andy Kaufman’s bar mitzvah.
A joyous mixture of the absurd and sublime, the six-piece ensemble are “Not unlike a volatile batch of bathtub gin; the music is potent, dynamic, a little dangerous and, once you’re properly acclimated, easy to swallow.
And funny as hell” (Whazup Magazine). Like the great entertainers before them, the band’s true gift is their ability to take their eclectic influences and combine them into something they can call their own.
If the recently retired Asylum Street Spankers were "God's Favorite Band," their fellow Austinites White Ghost Shivers are more like friends of the devil. Or most likely to violate some Blue Law somewhere. They're naughty, but nice.
The seven-piece Shivers can't be onstage without you looking around for some Snidely Whiplash character twirling his handlebar mustache somewhere nearby, but then a seven-foot-tall, eyelash-thin front man (Westin "Shorty" Borghese) and Kewpie-doll flapper diva (Cella Blue) in your band will do that.
The other five Shivers back them up with a hard-driving blend of blues, ragtime, Dixieland and Tin Pan Alley just begging for a captain of industry in top hat and tails to shower the band with $100 bills. - Houston Press
