StoorSessions presents | The Shabs (LIVE)

Sat Sep 5, 20:00 - Tue Sep 8, 22:00


Join us on Saturday 18 July LIVE from the underground, where we will be hosting The Shabs!

The Shabs is a Folk Punk band from Cape Town

South Africa.

Having gigged extensively across South Africa and

Europe for the past 6 years they deliver a tight,

captivating set that blends sincere, melodic singa-

long folk with the raw energy and DIY ethos

of punk rock. Drawing influences from artists such

as Frank Turner, Erik Petersen and Against Me!, the

band never ceases to get a crowd to throw their

fists in the air and sing along to their anthemic

tunes which have been described as honest, raw

and easy to relate to.

The band is made up of Jon Shaban on guitar

and vocals, Ryan McArthur on double bass and

backing vocals and Jon Case on drums, as well

as frequent collaborations with female vocalists.

Each musician brings their own flare and flavour

to the music, adding to the uniqueness of their

fresh ‘’High Quality Folk Punk” sound.

Since the release of their debut album “Folk

is Dead” in February 2016 they have toured

relentlessly around South Africa (performing at

festivals like Rocking The Daisies, Mieliepop,

STRAB, Park Acoustics and FORR) as well as four

very successful European tours (UK, Germany,

Austria, Switzerland, Czech Rep, Belgium) where

they were favourites at festivals like Mighty Sounds

(twice), No Borders No Nations, Earthquake and

Ziva Ulice.
