About The City Slickers

The band was formed in 2012 by Alan and Jim.
The City Slickers then evolved as different players joined in, and bringing with them, their individual abilities and experiences.
The goal was, to provide audiences with a high level musical experience which they could relate & dance to.
With its current roster of musicians The City Slickers are achieving that goal offering a wide range of music spanning from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80's.
