 Reid Scott ( Slim ) ~ ( Guitars, Percussion, vocals ) 

After playing drums for many bands over the years Reid decided it was time to go back to his original love, the guitar. He loves the blues and American roots music so it was a natural that he would pursue that genre. His first band was in 1965 doing Stones and Beatles tunes ( like so many others at that time ) He started as a guitarist and lead singer but found out how hard it was to find a good he decided to play the drums instead. But his heart was always with singing and playing guitar. 

Growing up listening to the American Roots greats like Hank Williams, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Roy Orbison, Ray Charles, Motown and Stax and all the great Muscle Shoals artists, along with the British artists like Peter Green, The Beatles, The Stones, Joe Cocker, Van Morrison, Eric Burden and so many others.. he gravitated to bands like The Paul Butterfield Blues Band and James Cotton and Muddy Waters out of the Chicago music scene. Taj Mahal, Keb Mo, J.J. Cale, John Hiatt, Bob Dylan, John Prine remain a huge influence. 

Reid brings all of these genres alive at  his shows... done in his own musical style..always with a reverence and respect for their music. Every one of his shows are a loving embrace of the music that came before and a walk through the influence American Roots music has all over the world... and his original songs reflect these influences.
