Their style is most easily described as a hot blend of jazz, swing, blues and boogie.
But that hardly does justice to their raw energy and enthusiasm – the kind of energy that will bring you to your feet and onto the dance floor before you even quite know what is happening.
This four-piece line up of sax, double bass, piano and drums, is not the kind of band to sit back on their laurels – all the performers play a vast array of instruments and are singers as well and whilst they work together to create the kind of musical harmony some bands can only dream of, every solo from any player is also pure delight.
It is not only Melbourne’s audiences that have fallen under their spell. The
Shuffle Club have spread their influence and fan base by successfully touring in
the UK, Europe, Mexico, the Caribbean and Japan. Regulars on the festival
circuit in Edinburgh and Australia, their name on a bill brings everyone from
professional swing dancers and curious old timers to overexcited teenagers.
