Slim Sandy and the Hillbilly Boppers play a mix of originals and their own arrangements of hillbilly boogie and western swing songs from the 30’s to the 50’s. 

Slim has played in bands for over 30 years, and was the original drummer for Ray Condo, and the lead singer and guitarist with the Crazy Rhythm Daddies. Other acts he’s backed up on drums are the Howlin’ Hound Dogs, Sophia Wolff and SUN Records legend, Billy Lee Riley.

Slim Sandy is a well known figure on the rocking scene. He drummed for Ray Condo, sang and played guitar in the Crazy Rhythm Daddies and released several albums as a one-man band. He now has a new band, the Hillbilly Boppers.  Lead vocalist Slim plays guitar and harmonica with Willa Mae on washtub bass and harmony vocal and German Ebert on drums.

If you want to have a slight idea of the joyful noise made by this hot and fine trio, imagine a mix between the Delmore brothers, Jimmy and Johnny (thanks to Mae’s perfect harmony vocals ) played by a jug band (think Gus Cannon/Noah Lewis) with a swingin’ and a rockin’ edge and some skiffle elements and the fervor of some bluegrass gospels thrown in for good measure.

A first class quality act that will have everyone's toe a tappin'
