Slick Brothers @ Zanders – April 3

the Slickbrothers

Smoothly sliding into your subconscious.

Rhythm and Blues, Classic rock with a touch of Country, folk, and more;
oozing with attitude and dripping with skill;
don’t forget to bring a towel.

from facebook.com:

When asked the question “where have u played “
his best answer is “everywhere there’s AC current flowing.”
He was greatly influenced in the beginning of his career by
Prakash John, Tim Bogart, and Donald Duck Dunn.
This collaboration resulted in the forming of the Slickbrothers.
He has played the blues circuit in Canada and the United States
and the country circuit in Canada .
It even resulted in a pat on the head from Buddy Guy after playing a burnin’ 12 bar.
He has had the pleasure of teaming up with Donnie Bernardie as a rhythm section for 5 yrs.
Mel Brown, Jack Dekeyzer, Richard Newell (the King Biscuit Boy), Don Walsh, Chuck Jackson, Tom Wilson, T-bone Big John Little and the last 5 yrs with Steve Burnside & the Marquis are just few of the other musicians he’s worked with.
All of this certainly raises the bar.
Ultimately he aspires to the Lincolns led by Prakash John!
The heart of his music is R&B but is always looking for a challenge playing anything else. Which has included country, new country, classic rock, celtic, folk and even pirate music!
