The Sloe-Guns have been recording and gigging around New York for over 10 years, combining
musical integrity with commercial appeal and solid musicianship. Their great songs, memorable
hooks and lyrics, creative harmonies, and top notch musicianship are a reminder that there’s still
commercially-viable down-to- earth American music. With roots going back to the best of
American and British invasion 60s and 70s rock, the sloe guns are proof that high-quality
grassroots rock-n- roll is alive and well. Country Standard Time calls their songs “miniature epics...
with tight harmonies and instrumental interplay.... tall tales with all sorts of Americana
allusions... with references throughout, from Crazy Horse to the Wallflowers…” Time Out New
York writes: “the quartet’s Southern rock cruises with a classic feel, with an emphasis on the
“rock” rather than the “Southern” part. Not unlike the Band and other ‘70s stuff.” Trifecta
reports “Dueling guitar ferocity and soaring Americana-flavored rock anthems.” The Sloe Guns
proudly use vintage American gear: 60s Telecaster thru a Fender Super, Les Paul through a
Marshall, Fender Jazz and Precision basses, Ludwig drums.
The sloe guns are: Eric Alter writing the songs, lead singing and playing rhythm guitar, Mick Izzo
on lead guitar and backing vocals, Robert Klein on bass and backing vocals, and Rick Sperber
playing drums & percussion.
