"The SlimJims are an All-Star Band that deliver Good Times & Quality Music everyone can dance to. They do a fantastic job relating with the crowd and have an outstanding stage presence. Proof of this is that all of our guests have commented on how great The SlimJims were at our party. We found The SlimJims to be a vital piece to our party and recommend them for nearly any event. All of the reviews are true about Shane being an excellent coordinator. Shane ensured everything was set up well prior to the party starting. His dedication to the band and his craft show through in the perfect package they bring. Snap into The SlimJims and you’ll be very happy you did."

This band is awsome! We had another band booked and they bailed on us so we went online and found the SlimJims. I called and hired them on the spot. I got to tell you the talent in this band is again incredible! They had us dancing all night long from Johnny Cash to the Eagles. I am very happy we found the SlimJims. Every one at the party commented how good they were and how they would like to see them again. So the SlimJims will have another gig with us guaranteed!

The SlimJims performed at my grandparent's 65th anniversary, and we all had a blast! Thanks to the SlimJims, the music was suitable for all ages and we all danced until our feet were sore. Not to mention, how kind and accommodating the band was. They even learned the song my grandparent's danced to on their wedding night! My family and I strongly recommend the SlimJims for all occasions. You won't regret it!
