Bringing together some of the finest musicians you could hope to see, The Slammers boast a wealth of talent in their exciting line-up.
Duncan Moris became the band’s frontman in 2008; an amazing new talent, Duncan made his debut at London’s 100 Club, his smooth and powerful vocals combining with boundless energy and enthusiasm to fit the band’s style perfectly. This stylish young crooner has deservedly come to be regarded as one of the finest swing singers on the continent.
Key to the Slammers sound is its kicking horn section, comprised of renowned musicians Andy Burns (tenor sax), Mike “Boner” Doris (trombone) and Tim Murray (baritone sax).
This big-band sound jumps to the amazing beats of its rhythm section, featuring “Le Gaz” Gary Richardson and former Alabama Slammers Neale Hobday (double bass), Claire Hamlin (piano), who have been with the band since its creation in 2004.
June 2011 will see The Slammers take on the Royal Festival Hall as they play, at the personal request of music royalty Ray Davies, the Meltdown Festival. The future is dazzling for The Slammers so don't miss out and see the best swing band in the UK now!
