The Shuffle Demons Short Info

The Shuffle Demons first broke onto the Canadian music scene with an
electrifying musical fusion that drew in equal measure from Sun Ra,
Charles Mingus, Run DMC and the Beastie Boys. The band was one of the
first indie acts to break out on MuchMusic. This band was genre
bending, highly visually entertaining, funny, and best of all, could
really PLAY. All their eye catching, crowd pleasing stunts were backed
up by incredibly solid musicianship and real ground-breaking playing.
Over the course of their illustrious career The Shuffle Demons have
released eight CDs, two hit videos, won several music awards, done
numerous tv and radio appearances and toured nationally and
internationally including 25 cross Canada tours, 5 US tours, 16
European tours, as well as tours of Mexico, India, China, Japan,
Thailand, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Aruba and Cuba playing
on big festival stages, theatres and clubs.
The band continues the tradition today with a great line-up of players
that includes Juno Award winner Richard Underhill -sax & vox, Perry
White and Kelly Jefferson - saxes, George Koller - bass and Stich
Wynston -drums. Expect the same exciting, no holds barred performances
that feature wild romps in the crowd, free jazz moments, danceable
funk, poetry, killer solos and more. We are a crowd pleasing, full on
musical group that backs up our stage antics with some phenomenal
playing by some of Canada's most talented musicians. We play a mix of
funk jazz, hard bop jazz and jazz rap, wear spectacular hand painted
suits and love to parade through the audience, a perfect festival,
theatre or club act.
