On a musical journey together they explore genres like: Smooth Jazz, Funk and Soul. Together with Hip-Hop beats it blends to a style that is best described as ‘lounge’. Cay-T’s unique voice and Chris’ skills as a producer form the base of Shakes + Seven. Live, the band is joined by Dutch top all around musicians as Willem Pluk (trumpet) P.J. Kleevens (keyboards) and Willem Oudijk (drums, percussion). These musicians also contributed on Shakes + Seven’s first album “One World” (2013)
