    What a FANTASTIC band! Slinks played at my 40th birthday party. My friends still haven't stopped raving about what a great band they were and what a fantastic night they made it into 6 weeks on! Slinks definitely turned the party into a real event, everyone danced and really really enjoyed the music they played. We had to be kicked off the dance floor at 1 as the venue was closing up. Thoroughly recommend and would not hesitate to book them again!
