The Slammers at Bands on the Beach

The Slammers call themselves “Southern Rock Specialists”, and boy did they rock at Bands on the Beach last night! It turned out to be a perfect night for one of the few remaining BOTB nights this year. Smaller crowds than usual, but that was only because kids are back in school now. It was actually a little more relaxing to not have as many people there.


That’s John “Flash” Gordon on guitar and vocals. He was joined by Jimbo on drums, and Louis Finch on bass and vocals.

Like I said, another perfect night:


Usually it takes 30-40 minutes for people to start dancing. Not the case tonight. These guys were out dancing right away!



Great show guys! You can read more about the Slammers on their website. Check out their photo album. These guys know how to party!

    The Slammers are a rockin’ band. They play an excellent variety of music. Very enjoyable. We need more bands like them.
