Biography

Miss Leslie and Her Juke-Jointers play honky tonk country music with a 50s and 60s flair. This group is creating buzz with their music they describe as “Country music with a hardwood floor sound”. Combining original material along with obscure country tunes that they have unearthed from the 50s and 60s, the band opens up new sounds in a retro honky-tonk setting.

Leslie Sloan sings a gutsy, belting lead that has been compared to the likes of Patsy Cline, Leona Williams and Connie Smith. While Miss Leslie & Her Juke-Jointers are a relatively new group on the scene, the band has played professionally with nationally touring acts. Ricky Davis played for many years with Gary P Nunn and Dale Watson and is the steel player on most of Dale Watson’s recordings. Ricky has also played with many Texas artists such as: Tommy Alverson; Davin James; Larry Joe Taylor; The Derailers and Asleep at the Wheel and TV and radio commercials and movies such as www.monster.com, Bud Light, Kodak, Lonestar, Texas Lotto, “A Scanner Darkly” and many more. Ric Ramirez has played upright bass with Two Tons of Steel and Wayne “The Train” Hancock.

Original tunes mainly come from Miss Leslie. Jake Jenkins, who wrote most of the material for Rebel Records’ Karl Shiflett and the Big Country Show when he toured with them, also wrote most of the songs on the “Honky Tonk Revival” CD.
