The Rhythm Slicks
The Rhythm Slicks A rockin’, rollin’, rhythm & blues bustin’ quartet, playing the Devil’s music as if their lives depended on it. In their own, unique style, the Slicks boot stamp their jumpin’ rhythms all over 50’s rockabilly and rack up the energy. These boys ain’t no slice of blazing Americana, they’re the whole darn pie! This hot, jumping combo are: Kev Burnett. Frontman, rhythm king and the creative penman of the band. Kev’s searing vocals and intense performance defines the raw energy of the band. Nick Jones. The 6 string virtuoso. Licks and riffs from the Delta to the Roadhouse and every juke joint and honky tonk in between. Nick’s cool, laid back exterior belies the raw brilliance that ignites every blistering track. Tony Biggs. The demon of the doghouse bass. Whether it’s a raw, rockabilly slap or a mellow, cool, tempo; Tony’s thundering bass lines are the pulsating, throbbing heart of the band’s signature sound. Mark Kemlo. If someone needs to reign in all of that rockin’, frenetic energy, there’s no one better than the Gatekeeper of time; the Sentinel of rhythm. Mark sits because no one else can when he pounds out those solid beats and hits those sizzling riffs. Forget how this music should be played, this is how it needs to be played!
