Slips & The Flaming Whippersnappers are an eclectic collection of musicians from the Gold Coast and Brisbane who love to reignite the spark and charm of Old Time Jazz, Blues, Swing and Ragtime tunes.
Taking influences from Clarence Williams, Blind Boy Fuller and Spencer Williams to name a few, Slips & The FW’s thrive on reviving classic numbers like Everybody Loves My Baby, Dinah Lee, The Sheik of Araby and Egyptian Ella in their own unique way, and they also don’t mind slipping in a modern tune here and there played in their own vintage style which is guaranteed to make you shake a leg!
Formed by Dracula’s long time Guitarist and Musical Director, David Kume, Slips & The FW’s have gradually accumulated musicians into their act featuring members of the Dracula’s Cabaret Gold Coast cast and band from past to present.
After 10 years of performing 5-6 nights a week at Dracula’s Cabaret Gold Coast to over 739,000 guests spread across the board, David and Rudi are ready to retire their fangs and finally lay to rest Dracula’s resident band ‘The Spine Crunchers’ and are looking forward to being released back into the mortal light pursuing Slips & The FW’s as their number one priority act.
Slips & The FW’s will be performing at Currumbin RSL from November on the 4th Saturday of every month.
