Magic Slim and the Teardrops Now Booking For 2010 Festivals & Special Events

Dear Talent Buyer / Event Committee:
It’s that time again and we hope you will consider Magic Slim & The Teardrops for your 2010 festival (or any events you work with).

A Chicago Blues Band doesn’t come any better than Magic Slim and the Teardrops. Magic Slim & the Teardrops proudly uphold the tradition of what a Chicago blues band should sound like. Their emphasis on ensemble playing and a humongous repertoire that allegedly ranges upwards of a few hundred songs give the towering guitarist’s live performances an endearing off-the-cuff quality. You never know what obscure Blues gem he may pull out of his bag of tricks next.

What Others Have Said About Magic Slim is True
Magic Slim consistently offers no-frills houserockin’ blues. He and his band are a national treasure. Living Blues Magazine

…easily one of the finest displays of Chicago blues I have ever heard
John Paul Brophy, Producer Blues & Brews Festival 2005, Salt Lake City

Magic Slim is pure 100% blues. When audiences have the opportunity to see/hear a band like this in action then there is little chance of them being conned by the many pseudo-blues acts out there. Magic Slim & the Teardrops should be the standard by which we compare all others. Andy Grigg, Real Blues Canada

Make no mistake, big guy Magic Slim (Morris Holt) and his gang of three are the premier Chicago blues band on the road and in the recording studio today. Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat

In a genre often cluttered with has-been rockers, young heavy metal merchants, and other blues-deficient players looking for a niche and an easy buck, it’s refreshing to hear a powerful album by a vibrant blues artist who knows the idiom inside and out. No doubt about it, Magic Slim is the genuine article. Illinois Entertainer

Magic Slim stands as the greatest living proponent of the intense, electrified, Mississippi-to-Chicago blues style that spawned so much of the music played by modern blues artists and rockers
Blues, Jazz and Folk Music Society, Marietta, Ohio

These guys are simply the best at what they do—playing unrefined and unadulterated electric Chicago bar room blues
