Plainfield Slim & the Groundhawgs
Plainfield Slim brings to the stage a Garage Blues that is out of this world. With lively and professional entertainment you will not be disappointed to bring this band to your festival this year. Plainfield Slim & the Groundhawgs are entertainers of pure American Roots Blues Music. Plainfield Slim's second album 'When The Devil Hits Home' is already receiving airplay world wide. From Canada to Croatia to the USA, DJ's around the world are spinning Slim songs Dirty Girl, Moan, Hideout, etc. on a regular rotation. Produced again in Lo-Fi by Doughboys guitarist Gar Francis (Black Sheep, Queen Of Your Dreams) this time Plainfield Slim has used his live band The Groundhawgs for support. After the success of the first album, 'Another Mule In The Barn,' Slim has switched from playing all the instruments himself to using the talents of Lee Fink on slide guitar, Rocco Scavone on drums, Mike Caruso on bass, and Myke Scavone on harmonica. With hypnotic grooves in the vein of John Lee Hooker and RL Burnside 'When The Devil Hits Home' has more of a Mississippi Delta Juke Joint feel to it that makes you want to kick off your shoes and shake your a... around the shack.
