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!

The Absolute Best!
If you've seen the Chicken Slacks at the Cantab, you already know how great the band is (and if you haven't, go see them!!) They set the tone for our reception and completely made the night. Absolutely everyone, all ages, was on the dance floor - even the groom's 83yo grandma was grooving until 10 pm.Sent on 09/16/2019
Great music was a given, but the levels of professionalism and organization went above and beyond our expectations. Jeremy was incredibly responsive, and so helpful in guiding us as we put together our wedding day schedule. He was accommodating, flexible, and not shy about giving useful advice. The band learned a new song for our first dance, let us have input on the arrangement, and even let my father join the horn section to accompany us. In addition to the reception, the Slacks put together a jazz trio for our cocktail hour, and their sound engineer stuck around late into the night so that we could continue using their sound equipment after the bands sets had ended.
The only downside I can think of in hiring the Chicken Slacks is that it appears that our wedding was completely deserted in photos taken anywhere other than the dance floor. With the exception of who to marry, they were the best decision of the day. Thanks Jeremy & co - I can't count how many compliments we've received on your behalf!

Chicken Slacks bring the party!!!
Hiring the Chicken Slacks for our wedding was the best decision we made. From the beginning, Jeremy was super responsive and helpful, and we went in to the day expecting great things. The band far exceeded our expectations, which an amazing sax/keyboard duo during our ceremony, and jazz trio during cocktail hour, and the best dance party we could have possibly imagined at our reception! All of our guests were on the dance floor all night, and weeks later are still talking about how amazing the band was. If you want to throw a rocking party that gets people of all ages on the dance floor, hire the Chicken Slacks! You will be SO glad you did. Thanks Jeremy and the gang for making our wedding so special :)Sent on 09/07/2019

The Perfect Band
The Chicken Slacks played at my daughter's wedding in June of 2018. They were fantastic! Jeremy was a great MC and kept things going very smoothly. Everyone danced and had a great time. Couldn't have been better!Sent on 06/29/2019
