The Cheeksters + Steven Brett

March 22 @ 7:00 pm

Asheville’s Britpop faves The Cheeksters debut on the Citizen Vinyl stage! Join us for the March 22 show, starting at 7 p.m. Doors at 6 p.m. Steven Brett opens. $12 advance / $15 at the door.


The Cheeksters were formed in 1990 soon after Mark and Shannon Casson met by chance on a train in London, England. Mark hails from the UK, while Shannon was born and raised in Tennessee.
They started performing music together as a duo with Mark on guitar and vocals and Shannon playing bass guitar. They soon released their debut album “ Stranger Things Have Happened “ in 1992, followed by “ Hey, What’s Your Style ? “ in 1994. The couple relocated to Nashville in 1996 and began working with producer Brent Little at his all- analog studio Cream Puff Recorders. So far they have recorded four critically acclaimed albums at Cream Puff – “Skating On The Cusp“ (1999) , “Nineteen Sixty Five” (2005) , “Movers and Shakers“ (2007) , “The Golden Birds“ (2011).
The Cheeksters combine the best of what made music great in the 1960’s with a winning, fresh pop approach that delights audiences. In the studio the group has produced six albums of timeless, tuneful, terrific pop that has real staying power. Onstage the versatile five-piece band turns out its straightforward catchy pop confections, bringing to mind a swirling variety of influences : Memphis soul, Carnaby Street pop, swampy rhythm and blues, and more. They somehow manage to channel Burt Bacharach / Hal David pop, Dusty Springfield’s diva soul, T-Rex’s manic boogie and the pomp of David Bowie often in the same song without sounding derivative. Mark and Shannon have called Asheville home for the past twenty years. The Cheeksters current line-up has performed live together for the past 12 years and is made up of Mark Casson (vocals, guitar, piano), Shannon Hines Casson (vocals, bass guitar), Jay Moye (piano, guitar), Mike Baker (drums), and Jerome Widenhouse (trumpet).
Steven Brett is originally from Nottingham, England, and has lived in Asheville for the past 12 years. He’s a member of the band Camp David and also performs solo shows. His most recent release is the single “There’s a Fairy In My Backpack.”
