Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 8, 2017From Corbett, OR

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!

We highly recommend The SlimJims. In addition to great music and an entertaining performance, the band members were consumate professionals. They were especially accomodating when we changed our event date.

The SlimJims were the hit of the festival! We received numerous comments about how the band brought back memories of yester-year. Shane was easy to work with and very accommodating. We would highly recommend The SlimJims at any public function or private party. Can't wait to have them back again!! Thanks guys!

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!

Private PartyReviewed on July 15, 2016From Portland, OR

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!

I hired The Slim Jims for our TriMet Family Day (employee appreciation day) and we could not have been happier. They played a wonderful mix of music and kept the crowd engaged all day long. Very easy to work with!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 2, 2014From Portland, OR

The SlimJims were fantastic for our party. We saw them performing at a friend's 40th birthday party and knew they would be perfect for ours. They listened to the kind of party we were planning and played a perfect match for what we wanted. One of our guests told me today that his wife (who attended our party) wanted to hire them for an upcoming party she was planning. They arrived early, accommodated an unusual residential venue in high summer heat and were very professional from the initial id to the end of their stay. They made our celebration very special, fun, and memorable and I highly recommend them.

The SlimJims exceed our high expectations. Everybody loved thier energy, talent and spirit. The set list choices were just perfect. If you are thinking of hiring a band for an event, do not miss out on these guys. We plan of working with them for many years to come and see them as an ongoing partner in the success of Pinot Casino. Many thanks to the band for over-delivering on thier promise of a great time.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 20, 2013From Happy Valley, OR

The SlimJims are an All-Star Band that deliver Good Times & Quality Music everyone can dance to. They do a fantastic job relating with the crowd and have an outstanding stage presence. Proof of this is that all of our guests have commented on how great The SlimJims were at our party. We found The SlimJims to be a vital piece to our party and recommend them for nearly any event. All of the reviews are true about Shane being an excellent coordinator. Shane ensured everything was set up well prior to the party starting. His dedication to the band and his craft show through in the perfect package they bring. Snap into The SlimJims and you’ll be very happy you did.
