HipSlack began in the minds of fans. Miles Partridge (guitarist/singer), after years of touring with tribute bands such as Appetite for Destruction (Guns 'N Roses Tribute) and Seattle:Tribute, heard the cry of fans for a different type of live musical experience. The desire was to create a band that could transcend musical genres, yet put on a unified, upbeat, and captivating performance. After deciding that the multi talented MC Squared (vocals/guitar) would be the ideal person to share the spotlight, they began collaborating with various musicians, performing at colleges, clubs and bars to great fanfare. The early shows included stops at Hampden-Sydney College (with Afro-man), and Lincoln Theatre (with The Breakfast Club). They dazzled the crowds with a broad array of cross genre bands such as Sublime and 311, Hip Hop/Rap tunes from the likes of Beastie Boys and Eminem, and some of the greatest rock tunes (re-arranged HipSlack style) in Sympathy for the Devil (The Rolling Stones) and Come Together (The Beatles).
During these years, the Band's line up has been solidified, relying on the low end bass riffs of Billy (Brick Rake) Price, and the rock solid, funky drumming and percussion of Shimer Gradus. Currently, the band is available throughout the Southeast for all of your entertainment needs, and watch out, these guys may just put on the best show you've seen all year.
