To celebrate 25 years of audaciousness, the Shuffle Demons and are embarking on a 2 month cross Canada tour (dates below or at http://www.shuffledemons.com).
To celebrate this momentous event we’re releasing ‘Get on the Bus,’ the long awaited Shuffle Demons DVD featuring all 6 videos, live performances from China, India, Stonehenge and Europe plus amazing photo galleries and interviews with the band.
The DVD will also include footage from our 2004 Guinness World Record breaking event with 900 saxophones. To celebrate this launch and to also regain the record (which was unofficially broken by a Taiwanese group last year) we are Calling all Sax Players to Nathan Phillips Square on Canada Day, July 1 at 4:30pm to help us retake the record! We’ll be playing a slightly demonized version of O Canada and with your help, will break the record with at least 919 saxophones! What the hey, let’s go for a cool 1000!
