About Us:

Wayne Willems - Lead Vocals/Lead Guitar - Born in Little Rock, AR, started performing at talent shows and family festivals with family band formed of two brothers and father. So, after high school Wayne took out on his own performing with some of the most talented acts and musicians: Aubrey Nash (ex Freddy Fender side-man), Nightmare band, Second Nature, Ma Ferguson Band, The Knight Snakes (former members before Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton. Bass player (Curtis Shaw) and drummer (John Shatzer) from Stevie Ray Vaughn & Junior Brown). I believe John still owns Stevie's living room coffee table. Here is a link to one of my most favorite venues I love to perform at, this place is owned by Willie Nelsons (road manager/friend) "Poodies Hilltop Bar and Grill." You just won't believe all the famous artists that come and hang out and sit in at this place on any given night of the week. Well after coming off the road Wayne started a working cover band "Mudd," a 3-piece classic rock band, which became a complete success for many years, performing all over Arkansas and surrounding states. Allan Donahue - Replaced David Willems - Lead Vocals/Bass Guitar - Also born in Little Rock, AR, David started performing with family band and Jr. high and High School band as a bass player and performed at many state competitions receiving many awards as a young striving musician. Soon after high school David worked in many cover bands and original acts such as Gary McAllister Band, John Kilzer, Chuck Miller, Tempted and he also performed with other bands with Allan & Wayne along the way until "The Rythmn Shakers" formed. Sharon Simmons - Lead Vocals/Drums - Sharon began very young as a striving musician playing along with Elvis Presley albums and performing at church and just about any place that would let this young powerhouse drummer play. Sharon has performed on and off the road for many years with acts like "The Pink Flamingos", "Wendell Craig", "Vicki Magee Band" and countless other performers and working bands. Sharon is the piece of the puzzle that completes "The Rythmn Shakers" lineup and we honored to have her.
