SLINGSHOT is a high energy Classic Rock band who not only pumps out an infectious sound but backs it up with a show, as Mirk and Randy lay down a rock solid foundation and on stage antics, Joe walks thru the audience playing behind his head, then with his teeth with in your face guitar licks. That with the PRO Sound, set the scene that gets the crowd pumped and up dancing.
SLINGSHOT was originally formed in 1977. Mirk Richardson, one of the founding members, Performed 8 years with Slingshot. Everyone went their separate ways in 1985 but in 2000 SLINGSHOT regrouped adding Joe McMahon on guitar and vocals, and Randy Wakefield on Drums and vocals. With the addition of midi implementation the band has rich full Horns, Strings & Keys that only add to the already powerful sound!
