About Shuffle Demons:
The Shuffle Demons leaped onto the Canadian music scene in 1984 with an electrifying musical fusion that drew from Sun Ra, Charles Mingus, Run DMC and the Beastie Boys. One of the first indie acts to break out on MuchMusic, this genre bending, visually entertaining, virtuosic jazz funk group 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, 17 European tours, as well as tours of the Caribbean, Central and South America, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, playing on big festival stages, theatres and clubs.
The band continues the demon tradition today with a great line-up of players that includes Juno Award winner Richard Underhill -alto sax & vocals, Matt Lagan and Kelly Jefferson - tenor saxes , Mike Downes - bass and Stich Wynston - drums and vocals. 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. The Shuffle Demons are a crowd pleasing, full on musical group that backs up nutty stage antics with some phenomenal playing by some of Canada's most talented musicians.
