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, mandolin, banjo, and keys on top of a solid and creative rhythm section. Three-part harmonies, accordion, harmonica, and a variety of percussion sounds add to the distinct flavor of the group. Their energy has been shared with crowds at many venues such as The Brothers Lounge concert hall, The Water Street Tavern, The Beachland Tavern, GAR Hall, The Barking Spider (RIP), The Venice Cafe, Jilly's Music Room, Crocker Park Music Series, the Lorain County Metro Parks Summer Concert Series, and numerous festivals including Painesville Party In The Park, Kent Rocks Music Festival, and Akron's PorchRoker festival.  

The RailShakers are Christian Celleghin on drums and percussion; Rich Doncaster on bass and vocals; Alan Douglas on keys and vocals; Michael Harvan on guitars, harmonica, accordion, and vocals; and Al Struck on guitars, banjo, mandolin, and vocals.
