The Chicken Slacks, a seven-piece specialty band dedicated to classic revue-style soul and funk, brings a show born from their acclaimed ten-year residency at Boston's famously gritty Cantab Lounge. ("Best Thursday residency," says the Boston Herald.)

Called from the start to bring their joyful Cantab show to the weddings of their dedicated fans-- nearly 200 weddings, now, in nine states-- the Chicken Slacks receive constant kudos for attentive leadership, proactive coordination with planners and venue reps, enjoyable planning with music director/emcee Jeremy Valadez, sensitive sound management, and worry-free leadership on reception day.

Best of all-- the Chicken Slacks play real-deal classic soul and funk that keeps all ages on the dance floor, all night long, guaranteed!

    Made the wedding!

    Jeremy and the chicken slacks were unbelievable for our wedding! Our one request was to have people dance, our dance floor was packed from start to finish. The set list and energy the band produced was why everyone stayed on the dance floor. Dance floor was hot!!!

    Chicken Slacks's reply:

    Y'all rock! Thanks for all of your hospitality. We had a blast! I will absolutely pass along this amazing review to the guys. See you soon:)

    Best part of the night!

    The Chicken Slacks were known to us as a great band from soul/funk nights at the Cantab Lounge. We knew we wanted them to play at our wedding and they did not disappoint! The Chicken Slacks were by far the reason we had such an incredible wedding night, and all of our friends and family were raving about the band and the overall fun atmosphere. The Chicken Slacks were engaging, fun and brought a ton of energy to the room! The set list was great and kept everyone dancing for hours! They also played funky New Orleans tunes and we had a traditional second line during the reception! Jeremy, the band manager, was extremely easy and fun to work with and provided so much wonderful advice to us during our planning process, helping us create a perfect timeline that included everything that was important to us. The entire reception went so incredibly smoothly because of him and the rest of the band. He was accessible and always open to chatting in preparation of the wedding. Overall, The Chicken Slacks helped us having the best wedding we could have imagined, so thanks!!!

    Great band, great people!

    The Chickenslacks are professional, timely, and ALWAYS bring the party. They worked with us to plan out the evening and played an amazing reception for us! They also worked with us to have a jazz trio for our ceremony which was beautiful and really added to our experience! Would definitely recommend working with them!
