”The band is worth having in a regular lineup. I had them play at Blase Cafe on Siesta many times.”
”Shell and the Crabs is a great band that can play a variety of music. The full band effect is a sure crowd pleaser. We have had them at our holiday party on a few occasions and everyone dances and sings along and has a great interaction with the band. Very professional and experienced too.”
Shell And The Crabs is comprised of 5 musicians based in Sarasota, Florida and showcases vocalist, Ms. Shelly Maxwell, center stage. This group of players stems from around the United States with roots in New York, Detroit, Chicago, and other snowy places recently settling in Florida’s tropical paradise. What do other musicians and clubhouse guests say..." tight performances and polished harmonies”. The Crabs play the best of best including: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and music you just don't often hear, such as classics from.... "Procol Harum", "Steve Winwood" “Moody Blues “and others...AND nobody can forget their originals!!!!! In addition to playing with musicians ranging from Mitch Ryder, Richie Sambora and opening for such acts as: The Reflections, The Contours and the Original Drifters, these experiences have deepened the group’s desire to be able to play and create music. .
