SHAKERS SESSION was born from the inspiration of Rob Barteletti.  He was diagnosed in 2002 with early-onset Parkinsons disease and this lead him to open the door to his love of song writing.  He had just written a series of swampy, tongue-in-cheek, sad, hopeful songs.  He brought rough demos to Rob Stroup lead singer of, The Blame, for his opinion.  As they discussed this, they came up with the idea to invite the best singers in Portland and the Northwest to each record one of Rob B's songs.  The album would be sold as a benefit, with all profits earmarked for Parkinson?s research and support organizations.   With vocalists like Storm Large, Pete Droge, Fernando Viciconte, Ian Moore, Mike Coykendall, Casey Neill, Bart Ferguson, Steve Wilkinson, Ken DeRouchie, Nick Peets, Rob Stroup on board, he is pleased and proud to present these songs to you!  Enjoy!

SCOTT POOLE our beloved house poet will make you weep from laughter.  His poems are so deliciously original and full of humor, you will want to run, not walk, but run to find The Sliding Glass Door at a store near you.  He truly is as adorable as he sounds!
