SlingBlade band was formed in the late 1990’s when a gathering of lifelong devotees to the genre of Blues/Rock music emerged from the Chicagoland area.

SlingBlade consists of the resonant vocals and rhythmic energy of frontman Michael (DiDo) DiDominicis; the crisp and cutting guitar sounds of Dave (Shredder) Bogdan – one of the finest guitar players around; the driving, bluesy beat of drummer extraordinaire, Paul (The Professor) Jacobson; thumpin’ bassman Fred (Mad Dog) Krkoch, whose powerful, gritty vocals will have you beggin’ for more; and Big Boy Len (L.A.) Augustyn’s rockin’ honky tonk guitar sound and blues harp riffs that will have you dancin’ in the aisle; Last but not least, the smooth cruisin' bellows of our newest addition to the group Bruce Gibson on the saxophone.  In short, SlingBlade will bring good-time Rock & Blues music to your establishment, festival or event.

In addition to our original material, SlingBlade also covers artists such as Muddy Waters, The Animals, Allman Brothers, ZZ Top, Joe Cocker, Los Lobos, and Van Morrison. 

SlingBlade has played the 2011 and 2013 Milwaukee Summerfest and at many local venues including Carlucci, FitzGerald’s side bar, Murphy’s Pub, Rory’s Music Café, Chicago City Limits, Mike & Denise’s, The Elbo Room, Friendly's Tap, Tiger O'stylies, Harlem Avenue Blues Club, The Brauerhouse, Ki's Steakhouse, Fitzgeralds main stage.
