The Shuffle Demons first broke onto the Canadian music scene in 1984
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 a twenty eight year span 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 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.
