Already boasting a large and loyal following, eagerly anticipating each and every gig, this band is only to start playing and more fans are born. Straight up and into it, your ears are blessed and your feet cannot be stilled. A mixture of Blues, Soul and somewhere in between, you will be reminded of all those wonderful songs you thought you would never stop playing, and discover new favourites.
For three wonderful years The Slick Chix honed their passion for the Blues as part of the Wiley Reed Band at Brisbane’s Travellodge Hotel. This added dimension and depth to their own interpretations of some blues classics.
Who Are We?
Offering this inspiring great-time music is a refreshing and surprising group of women, rising above petty prejudices and delivering the goods to all.
Leading the Band is Vix (Vicki Sheather). This woman has won fans everywhere she has played; Australia, Asia, Europe. An amazing aural force, you could swear Aretha Franklin and James Brown’s souls have met and joined in Vicki’s vocals. Husky and caressing, she will take you with her, and then hurl you passionately and unexpectedly with a power and force to be reckoned with. But that's not where it ends. In this band, Vicki also takes on the demanding roll of rhythm and lead guitarist, laying down some righteous licks on her tasty black Gibson or Purple Fender Telecaster.
Clare Smith has been playing in Brisbane and Sydney for the last 20 years. You may remember "The Surly Girlz" or "Acid World". These bands enjoyed a large underground following and Clare has brought to "Vix and the Slick Chix" her signature laid back style. With a seemingly effortless technique, she slaps the snare to life and brightens the songs, instinctively creating just the right amount of dynamics and excitement.
On bass, we have Aleathea Monsour, joining Clare in ‘laying down the grooves’. To see her petite fingers bring her big black left handed bass to life is an unexpected treat. No wonder she has the following and fame that she does. Guitarist and songwriter, Leathy comes from a rich musical background (“Qwerty Girls”, “Scattered People”) and her musical work has created devotees from all walks of life.
Together these women have found an inspiring voice, ignoring all those who said,
"Hey! You're a girl, you can't do that!!"
Mate!! They ARE doing it, and doing it brilliantly!
Get ready to laugh and boogie - this IS a Good - Time Band!!
