is a germany based blues band founded by Dieter "Jack" Jagiela in 1991. The Uptown Shufflers have played and toured the European Blues Festivals and venues for over 2 decades, while also playing with Big Joe Turner, former bass player with B.B.King for 8 years, (Isaac Hayes, Albert King, Little Milton). Dieter was now the leading guitar for Joe Turner and his Memphis Blues Caravan. Big Joe's Band head-lined the big Blues Festivals in Europe including Germany, Spain, Hungry, Austria, Switzerland, Poland, France, Italy, England, Wales, Lithuania, Morocco with Blues Bands from all over the world. Dieter toured with Joe Turner until his death in 2008.
When Dieter relocated to SW FL with his american wife in 2012, he wanted to bring that same vibe. Recruiting local blues professionals, Uptown Shufflers was reborn. Bringing quality music, traditional and contemporary.
Darci J. adds the perfect bluesy, smoky voice to the band.
