Throughout their long career Shakatak have released over 50 CDs plus 3 DVDs and most of the band’s extensive back catalogue is available world-wide on iTunes, Amazon and most outlets.
“The final act of the evening and of the entire festival was the illustrious Shakatak. Rarely has a group enjoyed so much success in a jazz field but tonight we were given insight into why they are held in such high regard. They are consummate professionals with seemingly unlimited stamina and an instinctive ability to hold an audience…tonight they proved they are timeless”. – BUZZ Magazine
“This music still glows as brightly as that first hearing…Shakatak aren’t just a band, they were the soundtrack to our lives” – RONNIE SCOTT’S House Magazine (UK)
