We are happy to announce that, in the Street Level Bar from 4pm-7pm one Sunday each month, Sando faves The Slowdowns will be appearing to share some of their beer soaked, hillbilly rock with the patrons of one of their favourite drinking holes!
These city folk with a penchant for cowboy boots n hats, both kinds of music, beer, cigarettes whisky and wild, wild women wont just drive you crazy, they’ll drive you insane
The Slowdowns will, stand and deliver! Gravelly lead vocals, five part harmonies, slide banjo, harmonica and blistering guitars precariously held together by a rhythm section that rolls like a runaway train. Featuring some of Sydney’s busiest musos, members of the Slowdowns have, over the years, shared the stage with: Louis Tillet, The Paper Scissors, Bluejuice, Juke Baritone, the Re-mains, Jeff lang, Ian Rilen, Toxic Vomit, Leah Flanagan, Dirty Deeds, Tania Bowra, Charlie McMahon, Rahtzee and many, many, many more.
Wanted for murdering the hits, butchering country classics and spicing it up with their original originals the Slowdowns have been spotted at Coonmable Rodeo, Nymagee, the Port of Bourke, Brewarrinna and Karuah RSL’S. You might have chanced upon them at the Peats Ridge Festival, The Wharf Theatre, Carriageworks, The Excelsior, the Junkyard and are solid favourites here at the Sando!
