Well howdy folks, If you like your cowboy swing with gypsy flings, then it’s “Yes Sir!” to Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings. Fine purveyors of boppin’ Melbourne countrybilly.
After stints in many other Melbourne bands the group slowly evolved from a three piece in 2011, playing classic hillbilly and country around the Dandenong Ranges into a 5/6 piece with a more elaborate and sophisticated sound incorporating fiddle and pedal steel appearing at festivals, pubs and clubs around Melbourne and Victoria.
With obvious influences from 1930’s and 1940’s such as Bob Wills, Cliff Bruner and Milton Brown, Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings throw a dose of Honky Tonk and Bluegrass via the Delmore Brothers and Hank Williams to create a modern blend of classic sounds. With an energetic live show that feature smokin’ guitar twang, slappin’ bass and all guns blazing, Slim Dime and the Prairie Kings are an old time party band with a difference.
