A Blues band based in Oxfordshire/Wiltshire. We've been together a couple of years and played some great festival gigs as well as a few pubs and music venues. We play a few Bonamasa covers like Sloe Gin and Slow Train as well as a range of other Blues classics from the likes of Thorogood, Clapton, Gary Moore and BB King. We also have a growing number of original songs in our set. We like festivals particularly and would be happy with 12 or so good quality gigs a year as we all have other commitments both musical and other kinds. We like to have fun at our gigs and enjoy our time on the road. We tend to rehearse around twice a month. Website is www.sloetrain where you will find some videos, photos and music. We're also on as sloetrainblues so check us out.
