Glowing Words from Happy Listeners

“The Slack Family was absolutely amazing.  I had such a wonderful time with them, I wish they could have played longer than 4 hours!  Thank you so much."–Rachel Vrooman

“We just wanted to thank you again for playing at our wedding on Sunday. You guys sounded just great Trying to find a bluegrass band to play in Virginia from Seattle via the internet can be a little scary, and we couldn't have been more pleased with your professionalism, your performance and the music. My mom received so many positive comments about you guys, and she said more than a few people at our wedding wanted your card, so hopefully they were able to bend your ear for a second to get the appropriate information from you. If not, I will definitely pass your contact info on to my mom so she can send it to her buddies. Thank you so much for being patient with me as schedules were slid and also for being so kind as to learn a bluegrass version of "Trumpet Voluntary." You guys were truly a huge part of making our wedding day special and perfect. Keep making great music!” –Katie and Doug Cannon

“Just wanted to let you know we are really enjoying your new Trains and Rain  CD!  You're all very talented!  Jason and I really enjoy the songs that you wrote!  We've passed the CD along to friends and family so they can enjoy it, too.  So many people prefer your music over that of many other bluegrass bands that have been around for quite some time!  Looking forward to seeing you next month!”–LuAnne Melton

“I had the opportunity to hear you all play this past summer and really enjoyed your energy.  My family is still talking about your talents.  They were very impressed.  Much luck in your future.” –Stacey McNerney

“Thanks again for everything at Governor Warner’s farewell party last night.  You guys were awesome.  We all had a blast and I know the Gov enjoyed it, too!” –Kelly Thomasson

“I just wanted to drop y’all a note to let you know of the influence you've had on this long-time hard-rocking metal-head.  I have listened to hard rock and heavy metal for probably 25 years now. I do listen to all kinds of music, but what you'll mostly find in the CD player in my truck is Metallica, Tool, etc. WELL…You might remember around Halloween, you played at a picnic at the Ashland Berry Farm for the firm of Hunton & Williams.  I really enjoyed listening to y’all play and on impulse I bought your CD "Pickin’ up the Slack".  Turns out that for some reason I just can't get that thing out of my CD player.  It's pretty much just been stuck in there ever since.  I especially like "Fergus County Jail" and "Like a Train" - "Chloe" and "White Freightliner" are great tunes, too.  All of them are great to sing along with (drives my wife and kids crazy, that does).Anyhow, I still have and listen to my Metallica and Tool CDs, but I just wanted to let y’all know that you've expanded my musical horizons and I really enjoy listening to your music!  Thanks.” –Bill Taggart

“Friday evening was awesome.  Thanks so much to you and the other 3 men in the Slack Family Blue Grass Band!  We all enjoyed the music!  Again, thanks for your part in making David and Kelly's dream wedding weekend come true.”– Sandy Allebach
