About Slidin’ About
Greatly enjoyed your concert last night at St James’ Daisy Hill – a wide range of music beautifully played. I was particularly impressed by the arrangements written by members of the quartet. Very many thanks for an inspiring evening.
Your concert for this year’s Thaxted Festival was a great success. It came across clearly that you all very much enjoyed performing and the audience felt they were joining in the fun. The programme was very varied, both classics and jazz, in your skillful arrangements. We also admired the variety of timbres and dynamics which you produced as you deployed your extensive repertoire of mutes – not to mention the pink trombones! Well done!
We were so excited to hear about Slidin About and felt they would bring something special and different to our wedding day. The boys were friendly, thoughtful and professional, keeping in touch in the run up to the big day and playing a fun and varied set which we and all our guests loved.
For many of us the trombone represents the very definition of a blunt instrument. It’s not something we immediately associate with great subtlety or emotional range but Slidin’ About…showed what a versatile and mellow instrument it can be, capable of remarkable delicacy and grace when in the hands of experts.
Young, Dynamic, Fun! A colourful cocktail of professional attitude, great musicianship and wonderful brass playing! I strongly recommend them.
Slidin’ About played at a wedding we attended in July 2015. They played during the reception and played a variety of different music to suit all tastes. It was really great entertainment and such a pleasure to listen to. In addition – they’re just a great bunch of guys! Highly recommended to play at any function – they will tailor their reportoire to any requirements. Love them!
Their musicianship and playing belies the relatively young ages, as they play beautifully and with musical wisdom. They’re worth a listen.
