Slippery Sneakers
Slippery Sneakers has performed at nationally known Zydeco festivals all over the country, including almost every dance festival in New England, always to wide acclaim.  Additionally, the band has routinely broken attendance rec ords at many of the monthly Zydeco dances held around the region of "southern" New England.

The Rhode Island based band formed in late 1998 with the goal of playing for the loyal and dedicated New England Cajun/Zydeco dance community as well as introducing Zydeco music to those unfamiliar with its unique sound featuring the accordion and rubboard.  After only a few weeks together, they performed at an annual New Year's Day Zydeco dance party to an overwhelmingly appreciative, foot-stomping crowd. They've been "doing the Zydeco" ever since!

Robert Graves Leonard – Accordian/vocals; Mark Trichka- guitar/vocals; Peter Breene-Bass; Lisa Brande – fiddle/vocals; Betsy-Dawn Williams – rubboard/vocals; Jack Moore –Drums
