The Shufflemen is a four piece blues (and other hues) band based in the Coffs Coast area with a wealth of experience in most genres of music. The band is fronted by lead singer and guitarist Tom Goodwin (Loose Cannons, Esmeralda), with Mike Bradbury (Moonshine Run, Cruzen) harmonica and vocals, Gus Schroder (TORK, Blackshaws Beat, 4th Avenue Band) bass and vocals with Phil Simon (Cutbacks, Kryptic, Tin Sandwich, Sideshow Men) drums and vocals. An article in the Bellingen Courier-Sun described The Shufflemen as: “seriously good blues played with the passion it deserves”. With a mix of originals and covers the fun, laidback style of the band interacts well with venue patrons.
