Eagle Park Slim has been playing his brand of rhythm, blues, and soul since 1954 across the country, sharing the stage with such legends as James Brown, Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Sonny Boy Williamson, Percy Mayfield, Ike Turner and many others. He developed his sound and style learning from greats and playing his music at his mom's club, The Village Tavern, in Eagle Park, Illinois.
After playing for many years throughout East St. Louis, and across the river in St. Louis, with such masters as blues pianist, Johnnie Johnson (of Chuck Berry fame), Slim ventured out to Denver, Colorado. There, his Mile High Blues Band took the city and area by storm, belting out the real blues throughout the 1970s.
In 1980, the road called him again and he headed west to Oregon. While many places throughout the Northwest , like Seattle, hold a special place in his heart, he fell in love with Eugene, as it reminds him of his hometown in Eagle Park. He's made it his home ever since.
