The Shuffle Demons are a crowd-pleasing, full-on musical group that backs up their stage antics with phenomenal playing by some of Canada's most talented musicians.

They 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. 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 extensively nationally and internationally.

The Shuffle Demons are genre bending, highly visually entertaining, funky, funny, and best of all, can really PLAY. Expect an exciting, no holds barred performance that features wild romps in the crowd – maybe into the vineyard – free jazz moments, danceable funk, poetry, killer solos and more.
