History

#1 Booked Band in Tri-Cities

The original SHADES were formed in Seattle, WA in 1982 by guitarist Bobby Nelsen.  Members
included singer Mark Levick from “The Machine,” guitarist Glen Eagleson from “No Cheese Please,”
bassist Dan  Stoican from “Baby Knockers,”  and drummer Carl Palmer.
The SHADES signed with  the WSA and FarWest booking agencies,  primarily playing road dates
throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Alaska. The SHADES have also played  shows
with various artists such as The Lou Gramm Band,  The Fran Cosmo Band,  TKO,  Doucette, The Charlie
Bird Trio, The Coasters, The Classic Rock All-Stars (featuring members of Rare Earth, Sugarloaf, Iron
Butterfly, The Blues Image),  Hell’s  Belles, &  Elvin Bishop.   In the early years  you may have seen
them locally at AK’s and Dominiks while they  traveled through the Tri-Cities between 1980-1990.
In 1994, Bobby Nelsen relocated to the Tri-Cities and reformed  The SHADES with new players,
influencing the style of  music, stage show, and energy The SHADES have become known for. One
thing has always remained true.  We love music.  Always have, always will.
