Shiftless Shuffle is London’s only regular authentic Dancefloor Jazz Club session, featuring the very best Jazz Jocks the scene has to offer.


Sunday 17th September will see the 3rd of this year’s  sessions in London, now in our 21st year, we’ll be featuring DJ Perry Louis with special guest DJs from Manchester’s, Dance floor scene Colin Curtis & Hewan Clarke.

What these two djs have achieved in Manchester is just remarkable, 

Hewan Clarke is the quintessential Manchester DJ. If medals were given out for services to the city’s nightlife, based on overall contribution coupled with sheer longevity, he’d be first in line.  Hewan will always be named in the history books in connection with The Haçienda, his greatest contribution was surely his role as a major player on the all-important black underground.


Colin Curtis, has charted an incredible 55 years as a DJ, championing many styles of music through the last 5 decades, starting in the 1960s at Newcastle-Under-Lyme’s Crystal Ballroom, before making his all-nighter debut at Stoke’s hallowed Golden Torch, Colin has spun a wide range of music, from Northern Soul through JazzFunk, Soul, Boogie and Fusion to House music in the 1980s.  He was one of the Jazz Dance DJ pioneers in the late 1970s along with Paul Murphy & Dr Bob Jones covering Birmingham, Manchester and Nottingham.  His Rafters Session in Manchester opened up the audience to the delights of Jazz Fusion along with the legendary Jazz Rooms at Birmingham Locarno,

Perry Louis, The man behind Shiftless Shuffle, has danced and DJd for many famous Jazz, Funk and Soul artists and is hugely respected on the international circuit. Perry specializes in playing Vinyl and likes to know that wherever he plays, his audience gets a real ‘Oldskool’ experience.  He’s passionate about putting Dancefloor Jazz firmly on the map of the UK’s music and club world and as well as DJing regularly at Ronnie Scott’s, CLF and the South London Soul Train, Perry hosts a weekly Dancefloor Jazz radio show (Jazz after Dark) on Mi-Soul Radio.
