Top 10 Reasons to Hire Dangerous Jim and The Slims

1. Performance and Interaction: Be honest. Have you ever hired a band whose demo sounded good, their promo materials were professional, then they proceeded to bore the heck out of your audience? That will never happen with DANGEROUS JIM AND THE SLIMS. We pride ourselves not only on being great PERFORMERS, but also great “INTERACTERS”. We’ll “MEET” your audience during the show, not just perform for them. We’ll interact with them between sets, pre-show and post-show. When they leave your event it will be with a smile on their face and a true appreciation of what a good live show is.
2. Experience with All Types of Audiences: We have played hundreds of concerts in the past six years, and, believe it or not, vocalist Dangerous Jim has played over 2000 shows in his career- all in the same boots!! The band has headlined RIVERFEST 6 times, an event that happens during Labor Day and draws over 500,000 people to each side of the OHIO RIVER. That is performing for at least 10,000 people during each RIVERFEST performance. We’ve performed at every major event in Cincinnati at least once during our career. We’ve performed pre-game concerts for both THE CINCINNATI REDS and THE CINCINNATI BENGALS. We played for only 8 people once because of inclement weather and we aren’t afraid to tell you. WE GAVE EVERYTHING WE HAD FOR THOSE 8 PEOPLE!!
3. Dance Moves and Choreography: We are all terrible dancers, but Dangerous Jim thinks he’s a good dancer. When you see him perform you’ll realize he is a terrible dancer who has fun trying. That’s what counts right? Occasionally and accidentally we’ll all do something similar at the same time – We call that choreography.
4. Musical Chops: Every member of DANGEROUS JIM AND THE SLIMS is an accomplished musician. The combined musical experience of the band is over 1000 years!  (just checking to see if you are reading this).  Vocalist Dangerous Jim has won 3 Cincinnati Area Music Awards, released 3 full length albums with his previous band Leap Skyward, and won the Motley Crue KICKSTART YOUR CAREER Contest. Shawn David Anderson is one of Cinci’s best guitar players and one of the most sought after teachers in the Midwest. Watch our video or go to for more info. We also have a GREAT 3 – PIECE HORN SECTION!!! No lame sampled horns from us – We are the real deal. Our single “FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE” was included on the BUDWEISER 2005 TRUE MUSIC COMPILATION.
5. Radio Appearances, Newspaper Interviews, and Sponsor Support: If our schedule allows it, we will perform either with our full band or acoustically on any radio show. We love doing interviews and have a complete press kit to make sure your event makes the paper. We’ll work closely with your sponsors to get their product or service maximum exposure. You’ll find we are very good at
promoting events we are involved in.
6. Specialty Shows: Many of you reading this are responsible for booking all types of events for your community. Besides our killer rock show, we have a great Christmas show we do every year called DANGEROUS JIM’S CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR. It’s all Christmas music, it features our fabulous horns, and it is family – friendly. It goes over great in a theatre environment. How
about a Halloween – Themed show with a bunch of songs about monsters? A Valentine Dance with lots of love songs? We’re in. Just book us.
7. Self Promotion: Need we say more?
8. Kids Love Dangerous Jim: We come to every show armed with free stickers, lollipops, toys, squirt guns, and all types of other things that children love!! Of course we OK any free swag that we want to distribute with event promoter prior to our entertaining show.
9. Song Selection: We have TONS OF MATERIAL! Swing – Blues – Country – Rock – Oldies. You name it, we maim it! We always perform family – friendly, light – hearted songs with EVERYBODY in mind. Our experience in playing hundreds of shows in too many situations to list here gives us excellent intuition. Your mixed audience will love us.
10. We Love Entertaining: Read every interview Dangerous Jim has ever done. The recurring theme is that we love to make people smile. That’s what life is all about isn’t it? We might even entertain a jaded Festival Booking Agent! Make sure you come see us!
