The Shack Band is a five-piece roots rock 'n' roll band from Richmond, Virginia. Originating when the guys were still in college, the band has been playing together since the fall of 2007 when founding member Mason Owen moved into a one-bedroom, run down historic Blacksburg landmark known as "The Shack." After packing it with music equipment, The Shack Band was born.

In May 2008, The Shack Band hit the studio for the first time in Charlotte, NC to record their first EP. The following year, the group recorded another eight-song demo in Richmond, Virginia. The group plans to record and release a full length album in 2011.

The Shack Band has developed a major presence on the Richmond music scene that has spread to other universities, colleges, clubs, and bars throughout Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, New York, and Georgia. Generating a faithful fan base, The Shack Band was named the "Best Local Band" of 2008 by Virginia Tech's school newspaper, the Collegiate Times. The following summer, the group was granted the opportunity to play The National Theater, one of the premiere venues in Richmond, Virginia. The guys thank anyone and everyone who has contributed in any way, either directly or by simply listening or catching a show. In the coming months, there will be many more songs, shows, and memorable nights....we'll see ya'll there.

College Event

I was blown away by the Shack Band. Everybody loved them, the music was great, they were fantastic performers. It was a perfect set of long jams, shorter covers that were fun to dance to, and some original work mixed in. Off stage, they were extremely nice, laid back, and very easy to work with. I think we definitely want to have them back next semester (maybe for our bid night party in early January?).  Mathew O.

College Event

Graham - The party literally could not have gone better. They were easily one of the best bands we have ever had in our house and KILLED it on Saturday. The rain and initially tough conditions could have thrown other bands off of their game a little, but they just came in with a great attitude and put on an unreal show for us. The lights and audio were great, covers and originals even better, and everyone at the party told us how much they loved the show. Thanks so much man,
