Performer Spotlight


Name:Too Slim & The Tail Draggers
Description:The band has had the opportunity to perform with a long list of heavyweight artists that includes Buddy Guy, Bo Diddley, and Robert Cray (the latter has long been a major influence on Langford and the band). Other main influences include Elmore James and Duane Allman. The Cascade Blues Association named Too Slim & the Taildraggers Best Regional Band for five consecutive years, beginning in 1995. The Inland Empire Blues Society dubbed them Best Blues Band for four straight years, from 1995 through 1998. The same blues society honored the CD Blues for EB as Best Album in 1998, and gave the same honor to the CD Swamp Opera two years earlier. For three consecutive years beginning in 1995, the society also named the band\'s guitarist the best of his kind and placed him in the Hall of Fame, as it did for the band\'s drummer in 1996, 1997, and 1998. The Taildraggers\' bass player was also honored as Best Bassist in 1995.
