Moritz Mentzel (Guitar and Vocals) and Leo Birkner (Bass), both living in the suburbs of Munich (Germany) at the time, started playing together occasionally around 2006. After a few sessions they got Hannah Langhagel (Drums) to sit in with them and they founded The Shindigs in January of 2007. In early 2008 they finished their recording for the upcoming EP "Zebra? What Zebra?", featuring different styles ranging from Grunge, Rock 'n' Roll, 90's Pop-Rock to Brit-Pop and Indie.
