LATIN JAZZ AND ORIGINALS

*** BECKY Y SLAM, a locally-popular musical couple, can play as a dynamic duo, a tantalizing trio (add saxophone) or as a bodacious band by adding guitar, bass and the sweet vocals of husband and wife friends, Janet and Keith McConnell! Becky Y Slam is available to play local venues, house parties, and private receptions with their eclectic mix of originals, jazz standards, funk, and pop tunes with an Afrocuban flavor. Click below for a favorite song request, "THE IGUANA SONG", about a 'vacation gone bad' that Becky and Slam perform around the town of Fredericksburg, VA.

*** SONS OF SOLOMON is a locally-popular reggae family band whose lead singers are fun-loving brothers Ryan and Roy Childs. Joined by Becky and Slam, the band delights delight audiences with their energetic interaction on stage (especially when Ryan starts bouncing). The band performs reggae covers in celebration of "Jah" and compose originals with messages of one love, peace, faith, and hope in a world at times filled with strife. Check out some of their originals:

CLASSIC ROCK & GROOVEABLE ORIGINALS

*** SUNSET SYNDICATE is a great party band that features hula-hooping vocalist, Amber Lawrence, one of the singing ladies of the 'burg' who also performs as a duo with Becky and Slam as "SUNSET SIRENS". The full 5-piece band is great for family fun, birthday parties, outdoor parties where the kids (young and old) can dance and take a turn at the hula hoop. It's like riding a bike!
