It all started at the now defunct Essence of Thyme coffeshop in Brevard, NC about eight or nine years ago during the Folk Jam USA weekly open jam there. Buddy and Norm met and eventually found themselves self-unemployed in 2008 with spare time. Why not waste these non-billable hours playing music?

Through various affiliations and conglomerations, this duo found other like-minded musicians in the Greater Blantyre, NC Metroplex to form The Sliding Rockers in 2010.

Playing gigs fom Asheville, NC to their home turf and on down to Greenville, SC, this rocking combo has built a deep broad repetoire that conjures free-wheeling FM radio of the 1970’s with it’s sudden turns, surprising segues and obscure gems.

Featruring six vocalist, two percussuinists, keyboards and three multi-instrumentalists The Sliding Rockers range from taught, sparse acoustic Neil Young covers to Steely Dan and Jimi Hendrix tunes with extended solos.

We don’t always know where we will take you but we know you’ll enjoy the ride.
