Singer/songwriter Jaclyn Dima fuses blues, funk, and rock to create a soulfully unique style of her own. Her influences range from the inspiration of the 1920s, to revolutionaries of the 1960s, to modern day pop, and funk. A resident of New York City, Jaclyn can be seen and heard around town performing at Rockwood Music Hall, Arlene’s Grocery, The Bowery Electric, Pianos, and The Bitter End.
Jaclyn's main project is currently original Funk/Rock/Sexy project, The Shakey Tables, who have just completed her debut album, A Shakey Table Situation. The band shakes up funk and rock with strains of Motown, 50s rock, a splash of rap, and a twist of big band sound, ultimately serving up a style that has a decidedly pop appeal and is undoubtedly fun and sexy. A classy, three-part harmony at the core of every song serves as the perfect excuse for female-fronted, high-energy performances. With steady gigs throughout New York City, Jaclyn Dima and the Shakey Tables deliver on its primary goal . . . to provide a good time to all who listen.
