The bandshell in Chemainus was quaking and shaking August 7, 2021 when the Soul Shakers launched into their particular brand of Rhythm & Blues. The group has been performing on Vancouver Island for twelve years, with powerhouse singer Joyce “The Voyce” Allensen front and centre on lead vocals and four seasoned players backing her up. Ten years after releasing their first CD, Live at The Yale, and four years after Love is Love, the band has released their third compilation Ready for You, an album of eight original songs which debuted to a sold-out house at Oak Bay’s Upper Lounge on Nov 29, 2019.
