Shaguar plays danceable mash-ups of radio favorites, a bit of the obscure and some favorite rock tunes with a rockabilly/swing style that makes folks want to get up and shake it. Add cool TV and movie themes and you could be served up anything from Prince to The Cars, maybe a dash of Frampton backed by the Stray Cats for extra flavor.
