My boyfriend and I are always looking for new Blues adventures. This past summer we found out about the shuffle on line.
Our first stop was at the Rosary for Sonny Moorman, your staff made us feel like VIPs.
That show was great and it just got better from there. The whole weekend was a blast. We have been to many festivals, national and local. And we both agree this was one of the best we have attended.
Your festival was well organized. The variety and level of the talent was excellent and the venues were great.
We especially liked the intimacy and acoustics of the various venues, and it was neat to see many of the artists mingling in
the crowd after there sets. We definitely would come back. Thanks for keepin' the blues alive!

Such Great times and entertainment!!!
You guys are Awesome!!
Last October my wife and I paid $20 each to see Lil Ed in Buffalo and $50 each to see Karen Lovely in Gravenhurst. $140 for 2 nights. Then I hear that the same weekend you had them and 20 other bands for $15 - un-freakin' believable! Next year we'll be at the Canal Bank Shuffle. Please add us to the email list.

Good evening Shuffle crew,
Thanks for the wonderful show again!!
We showed up all three nights and had a great time every night.
Hey Canal Bank Shuffle committee, Thanks for a great time! We spent 2 bluesifyin’ nights at the holy rosary hall!
A great new band in WSNB. I haven’t heard much of them but have listened to there CD a half a dozen times since!!!!
Don’t you think they are the harp blowin version of Poppa Chobby? Willie the harp man took it as a compliment
The Sat line up was great. Fathead, Sonny Moorland (another newbie for us and was very cool),
Jack D was the best I ever seen him over the last 10 years,
Lil ED - great as always and JLW - who brought us to Thorold were fantastic.
From a blues fan prospective who’s been to many festival’s you’ve got one of the best. We’ll be back next year!!!
Thanks again! Cheers Rob & Dee
Just wanted to pass along a heartfelt thanks for this years Canal Bank Shuffle, my
highlight will have to be
Lil Ed & The Blues Imperials, and the Gooboo/Rotundo was a great way to end a long
work week. I have uploaded a couple of clips on You Tube (search Canal Bank Shuffle)
Goodboo/Rotundo shot in B&W sorry the lighting was not the best, and another of Lil
Ed a little rough, much better lighting and sound RTFM (read the *!cking manual)
(sorry got a new camera and I'm still figuring it out) I just wanted to pass this
along and I can't what for next years shows
WSNB - HEY GUYS. SEEN YOU THIS YEAR AT THE CANAL BANK SHUFFLE.ENJOYED THE WORLD CLASS PERFORMANCE.
