CHICKENBONE SLIM of San Diego, California has been playing blues for over 25 years. Chickenbone plays a primitive, tough, bare knuckle electric blues, born in the middle of the last century. With a talented band known as “The Biscuits” made up of top blues musicians, Chickenbone is able to explore and take risks with his original material and interpretation of traditional blues.

CHICKENBONE SLIM has been nominated for Best Blues album in 2016 for “Gone” and 2018 for “The Big Beat” for the San Diego Music Awards. “The Big Beat” was released on September 15, 2017 and reach #16 on the Living Blues Album Charts by October, 2017.

CHICKENBONE SLIM’S live blues performances are organic, situational, and distinct. No two shows are alike. Sometimes the sound of the band is more uptown Chicago and sometimes Southern Delta or Texas, but in an intimate setting it’s more juke joint than ballroom.

CHICKENBONE SLIM has played over 500 performances at festivals and top clubs throughout California and Arizona. In support of his new CD, Chickenbone Slim is increasing his appearances and will be available for festivals, clubs, private parties and special events. The band is fully equipped for sound and lights for up to 200 guests.

2018 Highlight Performances
Gator By The Bay, Adams Avenue Unplugged, Northern California, Memphis and New Orleans Tour and various venues

-C. Michael Bailey,  All About

“This is the timeless Blues of Wolf and Muddy but with a modern shtick to it. …
– Alan, AKA The Rocking Magpie
