The original artist is a legendary blue’s singer who scored a number of hits for Duke Records in the 60’s and 70’s, including this 1961 single, which could have been the inspiration behind the catchphrase of a certain mohawked, gold chain wearing tough guy many years later.

The Shadow band are one of the many great acts to have graced the Hot August Music Festival stage over the years. In fact, one of the members has played the festival twice. Once in 2009 with his own band, and again in 2011 alongside his powerhouse vocalist wife in this group.

The 5 O’Clock Shadow is presented by Flying Dog Brewery.
