We are a trio based in Rockford, Illinois:
The group began as a single person act, when Brad began to play guitar instrumental background music primarily for art gallery openings and other quiet events. Brad asked Mark to join him and the dynamics of additional guitar and vocals were added forming The Soft Shoe Shufflers. K joined the duo later, filling out the harmonies and adding light percussion.
Over the years we have learned some things about performing well. The Soft Shoe Shufflers are a professional act. We play the best instruments and use very good equipment. We believe that the customer is 'king'. We are reliable, prompt, courteous and polite. We fit into a small space and require about 30 minutes to load in and set up. We are available for up to 4 hours, but will play for as little as an hour. You decide what works best and we will do it.
We will play at a volume that you choose and that enables conversation.
We realize that you are hiring us for something special. We are happy to do whatever it takes to make it easy on you. If need be, we can set up early so that set up does not distract from your special event. We can provide posters for you, if you like. If we have enough notice, we are open to learning a song or 2 that might be important to you. We will do whatever is necessary to make your event fun and memorable for all involved. Just let us know how we can help.
We hope you will enjoy working with us and listening to our performance.
Thank you very much for considering The Soft Shoe Shufflers.
