Shake, Rattle & Roll, an all female 50's and 60's show group was conceived by Tavie Spivey, fulfilling her life long dream to sing the "girl songs" of the 50's and 60's. She formed the group after retiring from a 27 year career in the US Army. In addition to Spivey, who hails from Gilmer, TX, the group members are Kathy Sutton, from Tyler, TX, Brenda Spencer, from Henderson, TX, and Spivey's sister, LeAnn Bemis, from Longview, TX. All of these talented ladies are in their 50's. Since their inception they have won first place at the largest doo-wop contest ever held in Las Vegas,the Cool Bobby B Doo-Wop Contest, leading to their first CD, released in 2008. Shake, Rattle & Roll entertains crowds with tightly harmonized songs and uniquely synchronized choreographed moves.
In 2010 the group entertained at 87 shows across the South. Their songs can be heard on XM 5 Satellite Radio's "Cool Bobby B Doo Wop Show", and on "The Street Harmony Review" show with Rich Rosen on KLAV Las Vegas.
Shake, Rattle & Roll is a self contained production with portable sound equipment, lighting and full backdrop. They are liability insured for one million dollars.

Shake, Rattle & Roll is a unique, highly differentiated, girl show group featuring music of the 50s and 60s presented with high entertainment value. We produce an entertaining show, presented in a fashion that creates laughter, tears and melancholy for an era when times were simpler and more innocent. Our desire is to leave our audience wanting more and desiring to repeat the experience we offer. We do family entertainment and promise a show that people will think about for days. We present professionalism not evident in other review groups. We perfect a flawless show from the perspective of the audience. We do familiar music, some of which our audience has not heard in years. Our technical production is appropriate and produces a WOW factor. We are not just singers, we are entertainers.
We travel with our own sound equipment (mixing board, power amplifiers, wireless microphones, speakers, monitors, laptop with music programming and music tracks) and sound technician, stage lighting ( two sets of four LED lights each on a light tree, controller and all DMX cables) and light technician, follow spot with operator and a portable backdrop which changes depending on the venue. We transport all of the above equipment including props to perform an entertaining show. Included in the price is all move in, set up, tear down and move out.
We require a performance area of at least 20 feet in width and 12 feet in depth on either a stage or a floow space. We prefer dimmable house lights.
We require access to 110 volt power at the performance area and at, or able to be extended to, a location 30 feet directly in front of the performance area.
