The Shreds tore it up for newest fans at Jammies Showcase

Jeffrey and
Betsey Severn,
Shred-head Parents

The boys did a great job, putting on their trademark high-energy performance, ripping it up for the sold-out crowd at the Crest Theater at the Sacramento News & Review Jammies Showcase on Feb. 23.

The Crest was an awesome venue for the 10 bands and one soloist that played there and showcased many different styles of contemporary music.

All the performers got to experience playing at a venue with a professional live video display and a rock-concert, blow-your-socks-off sound system.

The showcase included diverse rock music, from a soulful pianist to blues, to Christian rock, to heavy metal and to indie rock. All of the music was original – written and arranged by the performers.

The Shreds played for a theater full of cheering rock music lovers who showed their appreciation for The Shreds’ music by dancing at the foot of the stage, reaching out to touch the boys and taking their pictures. The heavy metal band even dedicated its set to “new hippie friends, The Shreds.”

The Shreds have been asked to appear in the Sacramento/Roseville area with other bands from the Jammies, thus giving them more opportunities to perform their music outside of Nevada County for their newest fans.

In short, the headlines could read “Local Boys Did Good”! The Shreds’ next performance will be at the NU Unplugged & Plugged In at Nevada Union High School’s Don Baggett Theater, Ridge Road in Grass Valley, Friday at 7 p.m.
