Los Shakers

Los Shakers were an Uruguayan beat/pop-psych band of the 1960s. Formed in 1963, the band were among Montevideo’s first proponents of Mersey-style rock. Advancing from their cover-band beginnings, the band embraced album-oriented artistry and delivered the 1968 conceptual classic La Conferencia Secreta del Toto’s Bar. The band was headed by brothers Hugo and Osvaldo Fattoruso, who advanced to jazz-rock mastery in the mid-’70s combo Opa.

Members: Hugo Fattoruso (guitar, vocals, keyboards), Osvaldo Fattoruso (guitar, vocals), Roberto “Pelín” Capobianco (bass), Carlos “Caio” Villa (drums)
