StoorSessions presents | The Shabs (LIVE)
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
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
