"MoJo Republik"

Slow Children] take spectators on a wild excursion, one could only expect the unexpected as the band unleashed its potent repertoire of rich songs laden with progressive moods ranging from the subtle, acoustic and mesmerizing to the heavy, dark and outright sinister."

"Las Vegas Weekly"

Slow Children demonstrates its ability to not only smoothly morph from near-metal ("Feeling of Release") to reggae ("Misery for Sale") to pop-rock ("Happy in Hell"), but also able to excel in every style.”

"From THE CLUB CIRCUIT- Eugene:"

Absolutely head-banging rock, with shades of reggae adding color- folks were on the floor banging and bouncing! Caleb Moffit on bass and lead vocals was wicked- he carried excellent lead vocals while his bass riffs popped and snapped. Kevin Hutman’s drums drove with impeccable timing , while Bryan Bacci on lead/rhythm guitar wove pretty runs through the set. The samples were a nice addition to the mix. The reggae flavor definitely came through on their second song, while the third song was completely funk with a contained energy that had everyone on the floor dancing it up. They closed the set with a cover of “Eleanor Rigby” that was awesome, bouncing from nearly punk pop to metal thrash (don’t kill me, - just my definition!). The vocals on the chorus were haunting-absolutely stunning. The audience was yelling for an encore- 4 and ¾ stars for this band and our pick of the night!

Bio


In a transient, impersonal world where sex, drugs, and Rock ‘n Roll rules, it is a breath of fresh air to meet a band whose past, present and future speak to their dedication to not only each other, but also to their vision of the music they create.

Slow Childrens blend of Acoustic, Hard-Rock, & Alternative flavors began with the powerful influences of the 90s NW Alt-Rock scene. Influences from bands such as Sublime, Silverchair & Nirvana with a touch of Pink Floyd and The Beatles thrown in and finishing with more recent influences such as Muse & Queens of the Stone Age.

Slow Children’s sound has been described as alternative rock with a reggae influence that keeps listeners begging for more!

So, how did we begin you ask? The story goes like this:

Once upon a time in a small town in Oregon there were three young boys that became fast friends. What began as a childhood friendship has already lasted longer than most.

This is the story of how Caleb Moffit, Kevin Hutman and Bryan Bacci, known as the band Slow Children, came to be!

Back in the early days the threesome grew up together in the small town of Brookings, Oregon. Caleb Moffit’s (lead singer/bass) dad was their music teacher in school and helped pave the way and set the foundation for their love of music.

In middle school they all began playing instruments and by high school, like so many others, they decided to form a band.

But, they were serious about their band, and just months before graduating high school, the 3 boys dropped out of school and ran away to the bright lights and rock and roll lifestyle of sin city (Actually, this is where their van broke down!).

So, Vegas became home for 10 years and the place where they rose to the top of their musical game.

Through thick and thin they have stayed best friends and musical partners ever since.

Missing thier roots as well as the coastal waters and clean and green air of Southern Oregon, Slow Children has just recently moved back to Oregon from their 10 year stint in Las Vegas.

While in Vegas, they performed regularly at the Hard Rock, House of Blues, Margaritaville, Wasted Space, Feel Goods, Diablo’s, Whiskey Sky, Cheyenne Saloon and many other popular venues.

When in the Pacific Northwest, Slow Children has toured and regularly opens for Floater. They have performed together at The McDonald Theater, The Showbox and most recently at The Crystal Ballroom. .
