STE. GENEVIEVE HERALD

Breakdown Shakedown will be the third feature band of the Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce’s Summer Concert Series, this weekend.

The band will take the stage at about 8 p.m., Friday night at the Orris. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with tickets costing $20.

A Top 40/rock and roll cover band, the group promotes itself as playing music “from Led Zeppelin to Maroon 5 and Chris Stapleton to Eagles,” noting that, “There’s a flavor for every taste.”

The group’s Facebook page lists various musical influences, including Cheap Trick, Bad Company, Hootie and the Blowfish, Backstreet Boys, Journey, Poison, Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Led Zeppelin, Huey Lewis and the News, Third Eye Blind and The Black Crowes.

It was formed in 2014, operating out of St. Louis, and has gradually gained a strong reputation for putting on a good show.

“We’ve been quietly working the St. Louis circuit since then, building our name and following as organically as possible,” a group spokesman told the Herald. “We pride ourselves in a tight, live show that provides everyone in attendance an opportunity to sing along to their favorite songs and dance their week away.”
