We'll be kicking off the summer season on the big deck at The Porthole!
Slygo Road is a Portland, Maine-based rock, blues, and soul band made up of four-to-six musicians with influences ranging from the masters of blues, to Hendrix, to The Neville Brothers, and Joe Cocker. The "core four" (drums, bass, guitar, sax) have played together for more than a decade and are as tight as you'd expect.
Our style is hard to define since every member brings a unique background and set of influences. Generally, audiences say we have a little something for everybody, from soaring blues guitar ballads to off-the-rails horn-centric ska tunes. The common theme is that everything we play is tight, fat, solid, and groovy.
Depending on the venue, we'll play either all original music or a mix of originals and classic covers. We make a point to include plenty of danceable tunes in every set.
Instrumentation includes drums, bass, guitar, keys, sax and assorted other horns that all color inside and outside the lines to create flavors from traditional blues to borderline psychedelic.
