The Shakes are a party band playing funk, rock and reggae, comprised of bar-seasoned players like Tim Sullivan, Tyler Card and Joshua Robbins (whose eclectic 2013 solo release, The Staggering Man, is worth bugging him to get a copy out of his trunk). They’re on the patio of Portland Lobster Company (180 Commercial St., Portland) at 6 p.m. Free (all ages). 775-2112. portlandlobstercompany.com.
