The Shake Ups

Meet The Shake Ups, an award-winning, Indianapolis-based power-pop music collective! Since 2005, the band has been blending co-ed vocals, bouncy melodies and infectious energy into a refreshingly charming sound.

For the past half-decade, The Shake Ups have been wowing audiences across the U.S. with their power-pop stylings, performing songs from and about cartoons for children of all ages. The Shake Ups have appeared at pop culture conventions such as Comic Con, Wizard World, and Gen Con, among others.

The Shake Ups have released three full-length albums of music inspired by the series My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, which have been acclaimed not only by young followers of MLP, but also by parents, teachers, and even musicians and voice talent from the series itself. In 2016, Nuvo Newsweekly's annual reader's poll awarded The Shake Ups with the title of 'Best Local Pop' for the band's latest MLP-based album, 'Rock Candy.' The band's latest project, 'The Shake Ups In Beach City,' pays tribute to Steven Universe, a critically lauded Cartoon Network series and Emmy-nominated pop culture phenomenon. The Shake Ups have been awarded the title of 'Best Local Pop' in Nuvo Newsweekly annual reader's poll for the past two years running.

The band continues to build on its reputation as a primary force in the independent art community, bringing joy to children of all ages, as well as pop culture enthusiasts and the indie music echelon. The Shake Ups are professional crowd pleasers whose performances are fun for the whole family.
