Slim Dime & The Prairie Kings

Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings

are an old time party band with a difference, with an energetic live show that features smokin’ guitar twang, fiddlin’, electric table slide and all guns blazing. It’s Hillbilly big band music for the folks who love to kick up their heels and step onto the dance floor. With musical influences from 1930’s and 1940’s such as Bob Wills and Milton Brown, Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings throw a dose of Honky-tonk and Bluegrass to create a modern blend of classic sounds.

Featuring:
“slim Dime” Jen Land – vocals & tenor guitar
“lucky Pillows” Chris Taylor – vocals & electric guitar
“Steel Magnolia” Mark Pottenger – vocals & steel guitar
“The Teflon Kid” Maxine Sutcliffe – vocals & fiddle
“Mancub” Andrew Barcham – vocals & bass

A collection of slick, yet ramshackle recordings, representing the bands unique take on the golden era of pre rockabilly, country, rock ‘n’ roll and western swing. Recorded live in vintage splendor by Paulie Bignell at Hailstone Studio, a studio rapidly becoming synonymous with quality retro sounds.
