Stray Dogs & King Size Slim on Tuesday 22nd May 2018
Stray Dogs: A concert performance from the highly acclaimed and charismatic duo. Probably the hardest working musicians we know, producing their own perfected style of popular music. Tonight we will hear their new tracks along with some of their back catalogue. Gary and Alex are highly accomplished guitarists and amazing vocalists with unique harmonies reaching the parts others strive to achieve. All presented with consummate stagecraft and presence This is not a night to miss.
King Size Slim: In 2005 Toby Barelli aka KING SIZE SLIM began experimenting with a new sound. A sound fully conscious of its roots but with a new story to tell. Having spent the previous 4 years touring and recording with TwoTone pioneers 'The Selecter' along with other Ska and Reggae luminaries, the sound was always going to be rhythm led, heavy on the bass and rootsy in the melody.
Big warm tones from his resonator guitar with a powerful and direct vocal style became the trademarks of the sound. Add rolling grooves, multi-layered percussion, vocals, harmonicas and myriad shakers to create a heavyweight acoustic sound that shouts loud and kisses sweet.
Performing around 150 shows a year across the UK and Europe built Toby Barelli a reputation as a powerful performer and a must see act on the roots, acoustic and blues live circuits. Shows at the legendary 100 Club, Camdens Jazz Cafe, Islington Union Chapel and Blues Kitchen announced KING SIZE SLIM to an enthusiastic London scene.
Following the release of his debut studio album 'MILK DRUNK' in 2013 , KING SIZE SLIM won both critical acclaim and a British Blues Award for 'Emerging Artist' 2014.
Word soon spread amongst gig go-ers and bookers alike that KING SIZE SLIM was a hot act and subsequently on New Years Eve 2014/15 Toby was hand-picked to perform solo support for rock legends Queen at the BBC event 'Rock Big Ben' at Westminster Central Hall, London.
Music Genres: Acoustic, Blues, Pop
