Youve heard of the tail wagging the dog and putting the cart before the horse, but coming up with the band name before assembling the band is kind of a new one.
Still, thats just what Jerry Gordon, founder of the local eight-piece ensemble "Shaken Not Stirred" did.
"The type of music we're playing right now, from the '70s and '80s is the music we
grew up. The generation that's out in the clubs right now is really interested in
hearing this type of music again."
