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, Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings throw a dose of Honky-tonk and Bluegrass to create a modern blend of classic sounds.
Jen Land – vocals & tenor guitar and

Maxine Sutcliffe – vocals & fiddle
Andrew Barcham – vocals & bass
These fine purveyors of boppin’ Melbourne countrybilly released their second album “Yes Sir”, in 2014, the follow up to their debut album Hillbilly Salad. 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.
