The Slingshots were born in august of 2008 with the idea of recalling and recovering the rhythmic patterns of funk, the warm vocal melodies of soul, the rich instrumental approach of jazz and the energy of rock, from its origins until our times, to offer a danceable rich selection of music and sounds, suitable for everybody, specially those in love with black music. Seven men holding many years of experience through a wide and varied musical career form the band.
For the last years these guys have caused a very good impression among audiences of the funk and soul scene in Barcelona, sharing the stage in their debut precisely with the best Japanese funk act of the moment, Osaka Monaurail, at the Apolo in Barcelona (2008.11.06). Later performances saw them sharing the bill with international groups of the likes of the New Mastersounds, Kokolo, Fanga, Lefties Soul Connection, Calibro 35 among others.
