May 2005 NEWS from Slimville...

Here's the latest news from Slimville... Guitars guitars and more guitars! That's the lineup for the Cotee River Seafood Festival & Bright House Networks Boat Show in New Port Richey, Florida. The headliner this year is Jimmy Thackery. We'll be bringing our guitar army too. Young blood Josh Nelms just keeps getting better all the time and we have a special guest sitting in with us for this show. Larry "RHINO" Reinhardt will bring his legendary blues-rock guitar too. RHINO was a member of the pre-Allman Brothers band The Second Coming with Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks and Dickey Betts. Later he joined Iron Butterfly then after that helped start one of the first super groups with ex Johnny Winter drummer Bobby Caldwell - Iron Butterfly bassist Lee Dorman - and “Hush”-era Deep Purple shouter Rod Evans: Captain Beyond. So he's a bonnafide rock legend and still plays great and has fun doing it. (ALSO - I've been practicing my Polkas for the big blues bash in Poland with my buddy Mark Olbrich and his band coming up in late May - Ten Years After will be there too!)
