Shiftless Shuffle Dance floor Jazz event
Shiftless Shuffle legendary Dancefloor Jazz session is back on Sunday 21st January, and we’ll be featuring one of the DJ legends of the Music Scene, Dr Bob Jones! Bob needs no introduction to anyone who has followed the Soul, Dance and Jazz scene or attended a Caister, Southport, Bournemouth, Margate Weekender and many more we could mention. Having had a phenomenal 2017 celebrating 50 years in the Music business, Bob returns to Shiftless Shuffle for an exclusive two hour Dancefloor Jazz set which will take us through an amazing musical journey spanning over 50 years of music.
Bob is sharing the decks with Mark Blee in his Shiftless Shuffle DJ debut. Mark got into Jazz by coming to Shiftless and has been a hardened collector ever since! He now runs his own promotion, Ease your Mind, and has his own regular radio show on Monday nights. Joining them both will be JazzCotech's own Glen McLean. There’s no doubt such a diverse trio of DJs will keep the Dance floor busy with music spanning all genres of danceable Jazz and JazzFunk, from Fusion to Latin, Afro, BeBop and beyond!
We’ll start Shiftless Shuffle with a 1 hour long class in the specialist Street-Fusion Jazz Dance style which is open to Novices and experienced Dancers alike and will be tailored to all needs on the day, providing the opportunity to learn the rhythmical, intricate footwork and so-called drop moves that are iconic and exclusive to this style. Teaching it are the hosts of the day – JazzCotech Dancers who have danced with all the greats from Incognito to James Brown and Roy Ayers and who are currently the only Dance group teaching this style.
Shiftless Shuffle is now in its 18th year and each month, we bring people together by sharing the music and the passion with the dancers, music lovers and clubbers. Shiftless has people flocking to it from all corners of the UK, welcoming new people to the club each month who quickly become regulars. Billed as “the coolest thing to do in London on a Sunday” by Time Out, Shiftless Shuffle is the place to hang out, enjoy the good vibes spread by great people, be inspired to strut your stuff to some incredible music, or simply kick back with a drink and enjoy watching the many Dancers do their thing.
Expect a full-on Dancefloor Jazz party with great music and great people: Dancers, Collectors and Party Persons alike!
Government Warning: This will be a session filled with explosive music and dancing!
