2.15 Baked Shrimp at HMAC Stage on Herr

Baked Shrimp

Saturday February 15th, 2020
Doors at 7:00PM

One of Long Island’s Best Kept Secrets

Since forming in January 2017, Baked Shrimp has broken into the jam/funk scene across the Northeast region of the United States. Within two years the high-energy rock trio has performed multiple extensive tours, released an album, and most recently has broken into the festival circuit. Baked Shrimp has billed with artists such as Dweezil Zappa, Lotus, Spafford, Mungion, and Pink Talking Fish on festivals such as Great South Bay Music Festival (NY) and Larrypalooza (PA). Outside of festivals, the band has co-billed with artists including Brandon “Taz” Niederauer, LITZ, Flux Capacitor, Electric Love Machine, and Formula 5. Baked Shrimp is rapidly making new fans on their tours which land them as north as Maine, as west as Ohio, and as south as Washington D.C. The trio keeps it fresh from night to night by never performing the same setlist, and limiting the number of repeated songs in a given run of shows. They are consistently asked back by venues and fans across the region, and have a growing social media presence. Looking into the future, Baked Shrimp plans to continue touring extensively and will stay true to frequently releasing new music.
