Oh my goodness!! We are over 50% there with 48 days to go. We are truly humbled by everyone's love, generosity, & support! We can not thank you enough! Really! We're right on track to raise $8,000 by February 6, 2011. If you haven't already checked out our Kickstarter campaign go onto to see all of the prizes we are offering and how you can be apart of it all! Help us "Slicker-ify" the world! It takes baby steps, and they begin with you ;-)

$1,350 raised....and counting!

With almost 3 weeks behind us, we have raised $1,350 for our Debut CD on Kickstarter. With 70 days to go, if we can raise $100 a day we will surpass our goal of $8,000! We need your help to do that. Remember, Kickstarter is all or nothing. If we don't raise $8,000 we get none of the money and the CD, merchandise, and the talked about tour will be majorly postponed. Don't let that happen...

Any amount that you can give will be greatly appreciated. We have been greatly humbled already by the generosity of our friends & family. Your support means so much to us! Your card will not be charged until the end of the campaign on Feb. 6, 2011, and only if we are successful. So don't worry about it getting in the way of your holiday plans, and even better...pledge in the name of a friend or family member that loves music and/or bluegrass! We guarantee there is something for everyone! Take the NYCity Slickers home with you.

Thank you again!

Great Fall Gigs

We've had some great gigs the past couple of weeks. and the fun is just beginning! We had our first gig at ROCKWOOD MUSIC HALL and boy did we love playing at that fantastic downtown venue! Best of all, thanks to our amazing fans, we were asked back! So save the date, for November 20th.

We had an amazing crowd yesterday at Pier 84's FALL EQUINOX CELEBRATION. Bluegrass the way it was meant to be heard - in the outdoors. We debuted 3 new songs, another song by Uncle Vernon, "Locked Out", a tune by Mississippi Blues-Man reeves Jones, "Texas Two Step", and a beautiful ballad by Hell's Kitchen Thespian & Nashville songwriter Bob Frisch "A Room in my Heart".

Be sure to come check us out next week at BROOKLYN COUNTY FAIR. It's Abi's Birthday and we're gonna be celebrating  till the cows come home! Take a look at our upcoming gigs to the right and check out the website for all things Slicker
