The Slide Brothers

About The Slide Brothers

The Slide Brothers incorporate the sacred steel tradition in gospel music with rock, funk, and blues. Members of the quartet, Calvin Cooke, Chuck Campbell, Darick Campbell, and Aubrey Ghent, were raised in The Church of the Living God, where they had an opportunity to perform and travel at an early age. Throughout the years, the group has played live together sporadically, but hadn't released an album until 2012. Recorded for the jazz-based Concord label, the self-titled debut was co-produced by John McDermott and Robert Randolph, who is the leader of and pedal steel guitarist for the Family Band. The association with Randolph led to numerous concert appearances, many of which featured secular music. One of the highest profile gigs for the Slide Brothers was taking part in the 2012 Experience Hendrix Tour, where they performed their interpretations of the Hendrix classics "Purple Haze" and "Foxey Lady." ~ Al Campbell
