Based in Nelson, NZ, Shuffle Shop Band offer quality entertainment throughout the top of the south.
Entertainment is taylored to the client's needs with several packages available from solo to 4 piece band.
Material is Blues, Blues/Rock, Classic Rock, and Rock N Roll.
Shuffle Shop, bringing quality live, good-time, pumping, stomping, rocking Blues to Nelson. You won(TM)t find us (or anyone else at our gigs), crying in our drinks! We(TM)re all about having a good time. So come along, and hear Nelson(TM)s premier blues dance band and party band.
Formed in 2008, the current line up is Shop on lead guitar, rhythm guitar, slide guitar and vocals, Rowan Strickland on bass and backing vocals, Paul Denny on Harmonicas, and our famous expatriate from the UK, Sean Barker on Drums.
Rowan and Paul are avid Golfers, getting out for a game at any opportunity as well as comparing notes nearly every time the band is together. Rowan is also a keen recreational fisherman. Meanwhile, Shop is more interested in Ducatis and his dog Starr. There will be a page dedicated to the bands other interests in the near future.
The emphasis and drive behind our existence is integrity within the Blues genre with a few related songs thrown in including Jimi Hendrix, Cream, and The Rolling Stones covers. We(TM)ve played venues from pubs to wine bars to weddings and motorcycle club functions as well as birthday parties ranging from 30th to 60th. We have our own gear in varying sizes so we are able to comfortably conform to the volume requirements of various age groups.
Some original material is included with songs
Nightbird, written in 1989 and still one of the most credible originals we(TM)ve heard. Nightbird is by no means art, simply a song with a beat and hooks and good phrasing that is fun to play and audiences react well to it.
