The Fifth Band of IMAF



For the fifth band of IMAF, the advisory committee brought to you a band called Shivering Timbers. In the beginning, Timbers founders Jason and Sarah Benns started making up songs to entertain their infant daughter, Suzi. Over time they evolved into a band, one that received an invitation to play at the birthday party of Dan Auerbach. Perhaps you’ve heard of Auerbach and his little band, The Black Keys? Based in Akron, Ohio, Shivering Timbers combine blues, Indie, gospel and folk influences with Sarah Benns’ clear, sharp vocals and create a unique sound that ought to be big here in Indy. With luck, look for little Suzi on toy piano and tambourine.
