Guided by the enchanting voice and unleashing energy of the attractive and charismatic riot girl Ciara Thompson, the band remains true to the likes of rhythm'n'blues and soul music, but in the process pushes the Buttshakers typical untamed and wild style on which we love so much. Influences such as Sly and the Family Stone, Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones, Etta James, Marvin Gaye are obvious in their songs and are inspired by the Motown sound of the 60s. Always soulful and full of infectious energy, The Buttshakers are able to catch every audience. They inspire both the jazz connoisseurs as well as the rockers, the mods, or simply any lover of soul music. (Source: copasetic.de)
