Hailing from Warrington in the north of England, Slydigs are a four-piece who are wowing audiences around the UK and Europe with their unique mixture of, what frontman Dean Fairhurst calls, ‘Modern Guitar based Rock n Roll, infused Blues music with perspicacity’. Freshly back from a sold out European tour with Vintage Trouble the band are about to take North America by storm. For their inaugural US tour the band are honoured to share the stage with one of their major in uences, rock legends The Who, having already supported them on their recent UK Tour and at Hyde Park. For Slydigs this is a great way to be introduced to American audiences. Dean sums up the band’s feelings – “To support them around America is the highest privilege a band like us could be offered. Their songs and back catalogue have been a huge part of our education. Their legacy has, and still is a daily inspiration”.

Slydigs receive rave reviews for their music. Their latest release ‘Light The Fuse’ is featured in ‘Rock Band’. Their live shows are quickly becoming legendary, collecting new fans whenever they play. Fans they treasure as ‘true music lovers with class’.
