Revelstoke is in for a special treat when the Shuffle Demons bring their hot jazz-funk-fusion to Grizzly Plaza for a free show on Aug. 14.

The legend of the Shuffle Demons is well known to Canadians. For more than 25 years, the Canadian jazz-funk-fusion band has been entertaining fans around the world.

The band’s high energy, out-of-the-ordinary live show bills them as folk, jazz and world music festival mainstays, and has taken them on 15 cross-Canada and European tours, as well as through Asia, India and Australia.

Now, the Shuffle Demons return with their first album of new material in close to 20 years, Clusterfunk, an explosion of fusion that will keep crowds shaking to the funky jazz rhythms they’ve become accustomed to over the band’s extraordinary career.

With eight albums to their credit, and winners of five CASBY Awards for their phenomenal Juno-nominated debut album Streetniks – the record that spawned the hit Spadina Bus – the Shuffle Demons are household names on the North American festival circuit.

Released on July 3, Clusterfunk features 12 new original songs (seven vocal and five instrumental).

Bassist George Koller and drummer Stich Wynston lay down a solid groove for saxophonists Richard Underhill, Perry White and Kelly Jefferson.

The result alternates between serious jazz and groovy funk played by seasoned professionals at the top of their game.

They make their return this summer, touring across Canada with more than 20 major jazz and folk festival appearances, including at the Revelstoke Street Fest on Aug. 14. The show starts at 6:30 p.m.
