Shake a Leg

John Michael Hersey

An anti-fascist rock and roll dance song.

This is song to end a long hot summer with some dancing in the street. This is a rock and roll call to arms and legs for peace and love and shaking your moneymaker. With crunchy rhythm guitar, a sinewy Santana-like lead, in your face vocal and old-fashioned classic rock backbeat this is a challenge to let it all hang out while the hanging is still good.
