The Pebble Shakers is a Cape Town-based group of jazz musicians specialising in swing-era tunes that will have your feet tapping and your booty shaking like it’s 1937!

To celebrate the history of swing in South Africa, the band also plays a selection of swinging South African tunes that haven’t been played live in over 70 years. The early marabi and swing tunes were played in the dance halls and shebeens of Sophiatown, Alexandra and District 6, and were sometimes accompanied by the shaking of tin cans filled with pebbles. The Pebble Shakers play regularly for the swing dance community in Cape Town.
