Sly 45


Before autotune and digital production, before the feature films and the platinum records, even before anyone thought to give this new music a name, rock and roll was more than just a style of music, it was an attitude. Sly 45 is the mid-atlantics living tribute to the swagger, style, and freshness of those early days when blues and jazz musicians were still figuring out what to call this new sound. From the blazing guitar licks, the come-to-daddy vocal stylings, and the dance-hall rhythms your feet never forget, a night out with Sly 45 is all rock and roll ever promised to be – a little bit more volume and a whole lot more fun.Interested in booking Sly 45?
