Formed by three friends in 2017, Shuffalo in it’s original inception had only lasted a brief time before one of the founding member’s moved away to pursue his own music endeavours.
However, the two remaining members, singer/guitarist Brayden Bell, and keyboard/guitarist Steve MacDonald sought to continue the group.
On recommendation, Steve contacted his childhood friend, Mac Bennett to fill in on drums – who then suggested his cousin Nick Jarvis try out on guitar – Now lacking only a bass player, Nick recommended local bassist and vocalist, Bailey Clarke, to audition…thus ending the telephone-wire of Shuffalo member recommendations, with the current line-up becoming permanent as of January 2018.
Now as a full five-piece with a wide array of influences and playing styles, Shuffalo grounds it’s musical direction in a to-the-point, purposeful style of song-writing, layered with danceable riffs, vibrant melodies, and warm synthesizers – blanketed in three-piece vocal harmonies.
With their live shows, Shuffalo creates an environment for everyone to feel comfortable, be themselves, dance, sing, and have a great overall experience!
