The Shufflin' Time Band is Jazz Swing with a Touch of Blues and Tap Dance.
Patrice's arrangements and compositions blend a strong rhythm section of piano bass and drums adding the temperature changing sounds of the saxophone. Sometimes cool..sometimes hot..always right on.
Their musical styles can be funky, driven, or vulnerable ballads with Patrice's beautiful vocal quality... never overdone.
Unique to their sound Shufflin Time has the element of tap dance as percussion. A strong accomplished tap dancer Patrice uses tap dance to add another layer of energy.
Monahan performs honest interpretations of standards and original tunes. Interesting arrangements balanced with improvisation underlie's Patrice's free spirit. This band can create an amiance that is subdued and sultry to hard swing.
