The Slim Kings stand at the eye of a perfect storm for bluesy rock ‘n’ roll. Among the New York group’s ranks are three young guns; singer, and rhythm guitarist Michael Sackler-Berner, lead guitarist Henry Geller, and bassist Andy Attanasio along with legendary drummer Liberty DeVitto, who spent over three decades playing on seminal records for, and performing with Billy Joel. Blending elegant song craft, impeccable instrumentation, and a whole lot of soul, this formidable lineup comes to life.
Self-produced and recorded in their rehearsal studio in Brooklyn, these musicians have written songs together that tap into a pure and powerful energy. Michael asked Liberty, a drumming icon and the very first drummer he had ever seen in concert, to play on a session he had booked the very next day. Liberty listened to the music and called back fifteen minutes later. Now, with The Slim Kings, they have solidified their musical partnership as band mates. The quintet really comes together on a stage where new ideas and old souls unite to make a beautiful racket.
