Meet the band

PhanieRae & the Soul Shakers is a powerhouse of musicians, singers & songwriters based out of central Illinois.

PhanieRae will move you.  She'll melt you down & shake you up with her vocals.

The Soul Shakers come from all different musical backgrounds, interests & influences.

They have a talent for melding it all together with precision and high energy!


An original Soul Shaker, songwriter & guitarist,  Alex Sams, leads the band with his smooth licks & cool kicks.

Levi “Lock Stock and Barrel” Huber is a singer, songwriter & slaps that funky rhythm on the bass. 

The youngest Soul Shaker has her own following! Slingin' sticks, singer, drummer & military veteran Cassie Kibler!

The roots & vision of PhanieRae & the Soul Shakers lie within singer, songwriter & guitarist Stephanie Takata. A bit gypsy. A bit gangster. A bit of everything.  All rock and roll.

Prepare to have your soul shaken!!
