Port City Shakedown's Mission Statement: 

Play music that 95 percent of the crowd loves. Every song has a purpose and even it’s placement within the setlist matters. Some are slow songs designed to invite everyone onto the dance-floor, (yes, even you can dance to a slow song), others are for getting the evening started or closing the night out, some keep people moving, and others get everyone singing along! Every song has been tested for "dance-ability".  If it doesn’t get people out of their chair or stay on the dance-floor, it's pulled and on to the next one. It’s not about the song per say, it's more about the energy created with the crowd.

This chemistry and excellence in musicianship are one of the many reasons for Port City Shakedown's success!
