The Slick Ice Band is a 4-piece group of talented musicians from the St. Louis, MO area that all bring decades of performance experience, some with international touring experience. The band brings a mix of rock and blues, with a special bond and passion for performing music. The band is in discussions with local studios in hopes of recording their first album soon. Stay tuned.
Slick and Ice fill the role of lead guitars and lead vocals and both grew up with musical upbringings and split musically to pursue different paths. Ice pursued rock performances on bass for over 10 years, and Slick held back a little more on the acoustic side of things. It was 6 years ago during a trip to Memphis that they decided to create Slick Ice together - and the rest is, well...you know. Jon Cheek and Mark O are the most solid rhythm section you will ever hear... Jon has played bass with many big names in St. Louis and abroad. Mark O spent years touring internationally, and his experience shows on stage - both on the kit and vocals.
"Playing music" is more than just a reason this band gets together on the stage; playing music is what each of these guys live for - it is like breathing...it MUST be. Slick Ice has "that thing" that makes a tight, solid band. Their debut album is in the near future - "We just need to decide we are ready, commit to it, and get it done" - says Slick when asked about it.
You DO NOT want to miss these guys when they perform in your area. Tell all your friends about them - you will not be disappointed. Guaranteed! Heck - perhaps a road trip is in the future, too...
