+ Add a Comment


Monday, February 4th 2013- Nashville foursome Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown had their guitars, bass and snare drum stolen after performing in Spokane Valley, Washington. Tyler posted the following on the band’s Facebook – please contact Rachel Cunningham with any information on the missing gear: cunningham(at)thecollective-la(dot)com

We woke up this morning in Spokane Valley, Washington and all but one of our guitars had been stolen. Pinky, my main Fender Stratocaster was stolen along with my 1965 Gibson SG Junior. Graham's VOS 57 Gibson Goldtop Les Paul and his 58 Sunburst Les Paul were stolen as well. The crook also helped himself to Noah's black Gretsch bass guitar & Caleb's Black Beauty snare drum. Can you guys please help us keep an eye on Craigslist & eBay? We gave the police all the serial numbers for our guitars, so hopefully they'll turn up somewhere around here. I'm gonna start calling every pawn shop within a hundred mile radius as soon as we get our bearings. We are super bummed out today and could use some good vibes. I believe with all of my heart that these guitars will turn up. We love you guys. -tyler



Saw him open for Jeff Beck at the Louisville Palace Theater and he put on an awesome acoustic set. I then had to go see him on his opening tour show at Headliners in Louisville with his band the following year. What a SHOW!
Although the crowd was small (and showed their appreciation) he never let on and performed like a Seasoned Veteran, the WHOLE Band did! The energy was magic and the tunes were filled with quality music showmanship of all band-mates!
Check out his home video of SHACKLES and get those same goose bumps i sometime get!
I will go and see them every chance I get!
