Texoma Blues Society presents The Texas Slim Trio

Texoma Blues Society presents The Texas Slim Trio – RedRock Saloon, Denison
Texas Slim could very well be a reincarnate of a passed soulful singer who plays guitar and is once again carving out a niche in blues music history.
Born and raised in Dallas, TX, Slim from an early age met and played with the great Alex Moore, a boogie woogie pianist who first recorded the blues in 1929 and who in 1982, would encourage a young Robert Sullivan to take the name Texas Slim. Slim was influenced by all the Dallas greats such as, Anson Funderburgh, Bugs Henderson, and particularly Little Joe Blue who took Slim under his wing in the early 1980’s.
Slim was one of the first artists to ever play a Hard Rock Cafe. In addition to that he has performed festivals and theaters all over the world. Slim has opened shows for numerous blues greats such as Johnny Winter, Bobby “Blue” Bland and Lonnie Brooks.
In 2006, Slim and his band filmed several TV commercials for Famous Dave’s BBQ, based out of Minneapolis which aired in over 30 states.
In addition to his own records, Slim has recorded and toured with; Cold Blue Steel, Randy McAllister, EC Scott, Wanda King (Freddie King’s daughter) and Zac Harmon with whom he is currently still touring.
