Hailed as the newest break out rock and roll band from the musically rich Twin Cities scene, The Shackletons are composing and performing music rooted in the rich influence of the iconic “Minnesota Sound”. Turning heads and garnering new fans with incendiary live performances, the band is built around three Campbell brothers. Their live shows careen seamlessly between Minneapolis punk, slick indie rock and hard driving boogie blues.

“Imagine Conor Oberst with a John Belushi attitude, fronting The Hold Steady.”

“We’ve been following these guys for quite some time now and they seem to be continually pushing themselves to the next level, never staying stagnant in their sound or live show… The Shackletons absolutely commanded the stage with energy and confidence, that felt less like a block party and more like a headlining show down at First Ave.”
