SLICK JIMMY was formed in 2011 as a good time, party band and is comprised of 4 seasoned musicians who have been working the local music scene for 20 years in many popular area bands including DR. ROCK, MANDI LAYNE AND THE LOST HIGHWAY, and XLR8 (Accelerate)..... Matt Palmer sings lead vocals and plays bass and really likes to interact with the crowd. Matts powerful vocals, energy and impressive vocal range give the band endless possibilities. Lindsie Ann on lead vocals and percussion. Lindsie is nothing less than an amazing lead vocalist and performer. She hits all the high notes with power and precision. Female vocals from the 80s can be very demanding. Lindsie has it covered. Jeff Lepcynski on drums and vocals gives excellent compliment to the bass and Jeff's incredible style and playing ability gives the rhythm section just what the band needs to keep the dance floor jumping. Todd Walter on lead guitar. Todd is an experienced professional on and off the stage and can handle all the big lead guitar solos with the authority that 80's music demands.
Although formed in 2011, make no mistake, the collective experience of the members of SLICK JIMMY has had them on some of Michigan's finest stages which has included the following: opening acts for many national headlining bands including WHITESNAKE, NICKELBACK, 7 MARY 3, GEORGIA SATELLITES and QUIET RIOT....also playing many major Michigan festivals including MARITIME FESTIVAL in Harbor Beach, THE AUBURN CORN FESTIVAL, CANTON LIBERTY FESTIVAL, BRINGIN' BACK THE 80S FESTIVAL, MIDLAND CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL and the DOW RIVER ROAR in Bay City. Casino work includes KEWADIN CASINO in Michigan's U.P. , FIREKEEPERS CASINO in Battle Creek, MI., Shanty Creek Resort, Gun Lake Casino and countless private parties and weddings as well as The Show boat Princess Wenonah in Bay City.
What type of music will you hear at a SLICK JIMMY show? Mostly 80's dance music but not limited to just one genre. Cover songs from the "big hair" bands such as MOTLEY CRUE, POISON, BON JOVI, AUTOGRAPH and WHITESNAKE. You will also hear the pop side of the 80's from such bands as LOVERBOY, PRINCE, BLONDIE, PAT BENETAR, JOAN JETT, ROXETTE, HEART and SIMPLE MINDS. Mixing in classics like ROADHOUSE BLUES, MARGARITAVILLE, BRICK HOUSE AND SOME JOHNNY CASH is usually a great recipe for keeping the dance floor moving also. With SLICK JIMMY on stage you know your venue will have quality entertainment with the sound and the party atmosphere. This is a high energy and interactive show, not people just standing on stage playing music. Professional and good natured attitudes off stage as well make SLICK JIMMY the total package and a great overall choice for your entertainment needs. Got 80's? GET SOME!

The Slick Jimmy Band was the band we chose for our wedding reception. They were very professional and friendly. They had everything set up and ready to go in a timely manner, even with our venue being over an hour away! They kept the party going throughout the entire night. I would recommend them to anyone for any event! Tyler and I can't thank you guys enough and we cant wait to catch a show around town!

We were BEYOND happy with Slick Jimmy.... book them - you will not regret it! We danced all night and everyone was begging for more when the reception ended. It was the best decision we made of all of our wedding vendors!

Matt of Slick Jimmy was enthusiastic and helpful along the entire planning process. We had an outdoor reception and it was the first wedding held at this location so he worked through the kinks with us; Where the stage would be located, amount of power necessary, suggested stage vendor etc. We had 108 degree heat index and for lack of better word the weather was unbearable. Slick Jimmy Band livened the party and was the only reason we had a packed dance floor til midnight. Its been a week since my wedding and we are still getting compliments involving the live band! The typical DJ gets the 20-30 year old crowd on the dance floor but the genre/ entertainment Slick Jimmy brings will get the latter generations up and grooving' which will drive the crowd! You will not regret booking them for any event!
