Big Slick


Music that Rocks!


Big Slick mysterously began in March of 2004. Their first few gigs were played in June and July of that year at two of the most well known venues in the mountains of Colorado, The Goat in Keystone and Sherpa and Yeti's in Breckenridge. Due to the success of those shows they were happily accepted as a consistant bill on their respective calanders. Since their inception in 2004 the band has performed over 150 headlining shows. A constant attraction in the Rocky Mountains and most recently in Denver,headling Quixotes True Blue and supporting at Bender's Tavern.

Big Slick is a rock band that bases its sound around the explosive guitar of Tim Johnston The members are consantly pushing each other to the edge on stage and in the end wowing audiences and bringing them back for more.

Their influences come from Classic Rock, Blues, Funk, Folk, Bluegrass, and just straight up Rock n' Roll. With a heavy rhythm section and a rippin guitar the audiences are always moving their feet and staring at Tim's lightning fast hands.

Big Slick tackles many aspects and realms of music but sticks to the main task at hand which is rockin' hard by playing their large repetoir of original music. Though over time the band has built quite a large list of cover songs that they choose from to mix into their shows. With their diverse original music and cover songs the audience always hears music they like.
