Who We Are

The RailShakers have been creating original Americana music and bringing it to the good people of Northeast Ohio (and beyond) since 2013. The five-piece outfit blends guitars, violin and keys on top of a solid and creative rhythm section. Three-part harmonies, accordion, harmonica, mandolin and a variety of percussion sounds add to the distinct flavor of the group. Their energy has been shared with crowds at The Brothers Lounge concert hall, The Beachland Tavern, GAR Hall, The Barking Spider (RIP), The Venice Cafe, Jilly's Music Room, numerous music festivals and many other venues. 

The RailShakers are Chris Celleghin on drums and percussion; Adam Dellinger on keys, accordion and mandolin; Ron Gero on bass; Michael Harvan on guitars, harmonica and vocals; Kristine Jares on violin and vocals.
