April 9
Victoria Folk Music Society weekly gathering, Open Stage 7:30pm, Feature Performers Slim Sandy and the Hillbilly Boppers at 9pm, 1110 Hillside Avenue, $8 cash, Everyone welcome!

Slim Sandy and the Hillbilly Boppers play western swing, hillbilly boogie and country blues from the 1930s to the ’50s. Slim sings, plays guitar and harmonica, joined by Willa Mae on vocals, “Lonely Mancini” on bass, and Soda Pop on drums. Slim has played with various roots acts over the years — 10 years as the drummer for Ray Condo and the Hardrock Goners, then singer and guitarist in the Crazy Rhythm Daddies, and drummer for The Howlin’ Hound Dogs. He started playing as a one man hillbilly band in 2002, then in 2012 – with singer Willa Mae – formed the Hillbilly Boppers in Victoria! They have played festivals such as Rockin’ Hillbilly, in Spain, The Western SwingOut in the USA, Rockin’ Around Turnhout, in Belgium, Good Rockin’ Tonight, in France, and Red Hot and Blue, Rifflandia, and Fernfest, as well as The Cowichan Valley Bluegrass Festival in Canada.

Slim and the band are launching their new album "LAZY DAY" (14 tracks of swingin' roots music!) at the VFMS tonight, for a show you definitely don't want to miss... Hoppin' and boppin' on Easter Sunday!!
