Win a Pair of FREE Tickets to the Slide Brothers @ Putnam Den on Friday!

May 16th, 2013, 10:00 am by Greg

The Slide Brothers are Calvin Cooke, Chuck Campbell, Darick Campbell and Aubrey Ghent are the Slide Brothers, carrying on the Sacred Steel tradition. But while rooted deep in the joyous gospel sound, the Slide Brothers’ sizzling pedal steel guitar playing breaks down genres and embraces elements of blues, rock and soul.

Released earlier this year, their debut album, Robert Randolph Presents: The Slide Brothers, features time-honored traditional gospel numbers, including “Motherless Children” and “Wade in the Water,” but also reaches into the unexpected songbags of the Allman Brothers Band, Elmore James, George Harrison and even Fatboy Slim.

But as strong as the Slide Brothers sound on their disc – and they sound mighty hot indeed, thanks in part to producer Robert Randolph, their music roars even louder live in concert. And fortunately for us, the Slide Brothers are about to step onstage at Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs on Friday night (May 17). The show kicks off at 9:30pm with acoustic slide guitarist Danielle Miraglia in the opening act slot. Tickets are $8 in advance; $10 at the door.
