Port City Shakedown are a stylish, high-energy male & female fronted 6-piece party/dance band based in beautiful Wilmington, NC. Their success stems from being one of the most “In-Demand” party/dance bands in Southeastern NC!

Their refreshing mix of the best dance music… Motown, Soul, Rock, 80’s / 90’s / 2000's, through today’s Top 40, is guaranteed to get everyone on the dance-floor!

Port City Shakedown not only sound great musically, but also have the charisma on stage to make any event a memorable one! Every performance is filled with creative song medleys, back to back dance hits, and fun audience interaction.  Their philosophy is to play many styles of music with excellence and to engage the crowd with a show-stopping, energetic performance.

I would highly recommend Port City Shakedown as a fresh high energy band that is appropriate for any venue.  They played at Boogie in the Park on Father's Day to a large enthusiastic crowd.  The band members are very skilled and the male and female lead singers are excellent!  They play a great variety of songs that really get the audience outdancing.  I had more compliments about this band than any other andmany people said Port City Shakedown was their favorite of any of the Boogies.  Joan-

We wanted a fun wedding reception and Port City Shakedown delivered! PCS was the perfect choice for our wedding reception. We wanted something unique, personal and FUN and we were not disappointed with our choice. The communication leading up to the event was professional and organized. They listened to ALL my concerns and made all my requests a reality. The band's talent is deep and diverse which comes out in their performance. The band members were kind, personable and interacted well with the guests. They had the reception rocking for hours and we didn't want to leave! It's been two months and our friends and family are still talking about what a blast they had dancing the night away with Port City Shakedown! Hiring PCS for your wedding reception will ensure it is a night to remember! Thanks for everything - Jenn & Matthew

"We used Port City Shakedown for our wedding in October and could not have been happier with them!  Not only did the band completely impress all of our guests and keep everyone grooving for the entire reception, but the band was also very professional to work with.  Tim came to view the venue ahead of time to make sure he had all the necessary equipment and hook ups for the sound and kept in contact with the wedding coordinator to make sure that everyone detail was taken care of.  

Tim was very organized with asking for song choices and the band even learned one of my favorite songs in preparation for the day.  The band's sound appeals to all ages.  We are still getting comments from guests about how awesome the band was.  I highly recommend them if you want a stress free band that keeps the party rocking and the event memorable!"    Thanks,  Lauren 

"Our guest are still talking about Port City Shakedown, they were fabulous!

We first heard them at an event in Wilmington for our son's fraternity. It was parents weekend, all at the event were comfortable with the music. This was a key factor for us choosing a band for our daughter's wedding. We could not have chosen a better group, they played music that was for young adults through my aunts and uncles, age 80,
The dance floor never cleared!
Best wishes on your wedding planning - Judy
