JazzCotech are starting 2016 in style! DJ Steve Gibson will play his first ever DJ set at Shiftless Shuffle in this New Year special! Steve his best known for his “Jazz Room” radio show every Sunday evening on 106.9sfm, and of course his triumphant Jazz Room at the Stage 3 Reunion! Steve has been an integral part of the UK Funk, Soul and Jazz Dance scene for some years, and it is great to see the part that Shiftless has played in him turning from collector, Punter to DJ. 

So who better to partner him behind the decks than Shiftless Shuffle Founder Perry Louis aka de Boss. Perry needs no introduction, being one of the most notable people on the international Jazz, Funk and Soul scenes, as a Dancer, DJ and Promoter. Let’s just say the 2 of them will provide tunes that will set the Shiftless floor on fire! 

Perry will start the day by teaching a one hour class in the specialist Street-Fusion Jazz Dance style which is performed and taught exclusively Perry’s Dance Group, the JazzCotech Dancers. The class 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. 

The ensuing club session has people flocking to it from all corners of the UK, including some of the best and original Jazz Dancers the UK has to offer. Billed as “the coolest thing to do in London on a Sunday” by Time Out, Shiftless Shuffle is the place to hang out, be seen and 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. 

What better way to ease in to the New Year?
