We booked the Sim Jims for our wedding and absolutely loved what we got. Shane was excellent to work with beforehand, was extremely accommodating and incredibly professional and personal. They were willing to learn a new song for our first dance, play acoustic fiddle during the ceremony and really read the vibe during the reception. They had people wanting to dance from the first song and by the last song everyone was still going. The music selection was excellent, their cowboy suit style on point, and they were excited to be a part of our day. Everyone in the group is very talented and skilled as musicians. I strongly recommend them for any event!

The Slim Jim's are a talented group that play the classic country songs, as well as the great 70's tunes that fit well into the same genre. They were sensitive to our celebration of life event, and we're very flexible to our scheduled program. You can tell that they love to play together. Shane is very easy to work with, and made sure that we touched base a couple times before our event. All our family and friends commented on how much they enjoyed their music. I would enthusiastically recommend them!

The Slim Jims were perfect for our conference awards dinner. They played exactly the type of music that we needed during dinner and then they got the crowd moving after that "quiet" part of the evening. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the friendly, but professional style and loved their music. Great job!!

I have worked with 14 different bands this summer for various community events and the SlimJims were the standout group. Talented, flexible, genuine, enjoyable, gracious, and they really had people excited about their sound!! I will definitely have them back to Dayton!
