Who is Shagnasty?
You might have noticed us talking about the "old
times" and our fans from "way back" and wondered what was up with that.
Well, Shagnasty has a history, and for now we'll just include a brief outline.
Shagnasty first formed back in the 1975 and played locally in the Salina area. With
a strong following, Shagnasty played together (with varying lineups) for over 15 years.
In recent years, they have been somewhat of a legend
around Salina, with every new musician in town being asked if they've ever heard of
"those Shagnasty guys." As a result, the last lineup of Shagnasty returned to
the stage together for a one-time reunion gig that took place July 1, 2000 at the Crow's
Nest in Salina.
Due to the success of that gig, two of the original
members (Steve & Maddog) decided to reform the band. That's where the Ripper came in,
a popular local musician. So now we're Shagnasty, the Millienium version.
