HELLO and welcome!!!     Gene Hardage AKA Sarasota Slim.

A Florida native and proud of it.  There are early CDs on the Appaloosa label of Milan Italy and self produced CDs on the Possum Phono-Graphics label as well as misc. guest appearances on other recording projects worldwide.  The Sarasota Slim Band started in the mid 80's and has had all manner of talented musicians come and go through it.  The common thread being a love of blues based music done right.
