About thechantrelles

Is Muscle Shoals a place or a feeling? Is Victoria, BC an itty bitty city or the land of a thousand dances? We wanna get 'em shaking, get 'em quaking, bring 'em up and knock 'em out. Have you ever danced until you just couldn't dance no more? The Chantrelles were formed a couple years ago. After plying their trade in the cover-tune trenches they started writing their own Sweet Soul Music, pressed a single, toured the highways and byways of their dearly beloved Canada, and are currently hard at work preparing the songs for their first full-length release. There's seven of them and they all know how to get down.
