JD Wilkes, best known as frontman of the Legendary Shack Shakers, is hitting the road with fellow rockabilly and garage rock titan Dex Romweber

In addition to continued work with Legendary Shack Shakers, Wilkes funnels his electric performance style into a solo project that hearkens back to traditional old-time and bluegrass material, featuring acoustic banjo, vocals and his signature harmonica playing.
