Formation and original line-up
Be Quiet. Shout Loud! formed around February 2008 from the ashes of Teesside Band 'Secret Signal'. The original line-up was Jake Radio (vocals), Macca (guitar), Big Dave (bass), Chris Burton (keyboards) and Paul Morton (drums).
Around June 2008 Michael Snowden joined on drums with Paul moving over to Synth and second drummer duties. Since then the band has seen a few minor changes with current guitarist Jamie Donnelly taking over from Paul Macca McCullagh in 2017.
With over 100 gigs under their belts, the band has supported such acts as Iglu & Hartly, Electric 6, The Chapman Family, One Night Only, Team Waterpolo, and Kaizers Orchestra while playing at Middlesbrough Music Live, Beached Festival, and Olgas Rock festivals.
The band has released numerous singles and a live album since their formation. Their first single was “Disco Beat” in 2009 with their upcoming single “Superheroes” set to be released in November 2017. All of the bands back catalogue of singles are available on iTunes.
In early 2008 a video appeared on YouTube of Middlesbrough F.C. defender David Wheater dancing to 'You'll never know how to dance (Unless you're dancin' with us)' which was later named as the number-three dancing-footballer video by The Daily Mirror.
