Shanestock is an annual music festival that we founded in honor of our very best friend Shane Keppley. After passing away in a tragic accident in 2009, we have dedicated countless hours to a cause we feel is worthy of Shane and his constant impact on our lives.
As the lead guitar of 165 1/2, Shane was not only a beloved friend and extremely talented musician, but more of a family member to all of us and every one he encountered. So it is in his honor that we have officially started The Shane Keppley Foundation. Each year we raise money with our events to contribute to local causes around the area in memory of our lost friend. Peaking at over 750 people in attendance, Shanestock has become the largest event at Fish Head Cantina, raising over $35,000 in donation money since it's first year. Focusing on local and up and coming musical acts, we've been able to provide an exciting and lucrative venue for these groups to perform and be noticed in our area, drawing more and more numbers as the years go on, and building a fan base for otherwise unknown acts as Shane would have wanted.
Our focus on family, friends and the celebration of life of one of the best people we have known has caused Shanestock to become an event to be revered in our town and surrounding areas. It is obviously no secret how proud we are to host this in honor of Shane Keppley, and we hope that you come experience the same sense of community and friendship that we do each year.
