Founded in 1998, the Slicked Up 9's unleash a high-energy tribute to the original R&B music - Jump Blues. Decades ago Jump Blues was belted out from blazing horns to steaming dance floors, forgotten soon after as it was simplified, watered-down, and repackaged as Rock 'n Roll for the mainstream.
Now in the 21st Century, the 9's draw upon blues, jump, swing, jazz and rockabilly influences to remind the world that music can be rich with colorful soul, driving with heavy swing, and blaring with dynamic exuberance that either brings you to your feet... or knocks you back on your seat.
The 9's history speaks for itself, but nothing can be as convincing as experiencing a live show in the flesh- hearing a wall of sound explode from the 5-piece horn section, feeling the pounce of the upright bass on your chest, seeing a collection of handsome fella's slicked up to the 9's and being surrounded by enthusiastic audience members clapping and dancing with elation.
Whether at a nightclub, college, swing dance, or private party, the Slicked Up 9's have taken musical diversity to new levels and captivate any audience they face.
So if you dare to take your experience to a new level, make the Slicked Up 9's experience a part of yours...
