-The Dallas Observer, 2011
The Slingers are a true orchestra, complete with a string section of 3 violins, viola, cello, and string bass. The drummer also doubles on vintage xylophone and bells- more examples of period instruments. The rhythm is driving, with tuba and banjo propelling the orchestra along. Their repertoire is immense, featuring fox trots, waltzes, marches, one-steps, rags, tangos, and rhumbas. They even venture into the exotic- castle walks, the maxixe, and of course, the oriental fox trot. The orchestra's members range greatly in age, proving this music is truly timeless.
The selections performed by the orchestra are not a forgotten artifact or a museum piece, but a live, breathing testament to the great music of yesteryear. This is music that appeals to all generations, young and old alike. The orchestra takes great delight in performing for their audiences, and they hope to play for you sometime- at a dance, a concert, or perhaps your very own affair!
