The City Slickers today
   Inspired by the western music groups of the 30s and 40s,
 The City Slickers add a genuine American sound to every event
 with their tight, three-part harmonies, virtuoso solos,
 bluegrass instrumentals, country & western hits
 and just the right amount of humor.
The City Slickers back then
Steve Criss, Robert Steubl †, Gerald Jelesitz
   
In our repertoire you'll find country music classics by legends like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and Dave Dudley, as well as hits by Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Dwight Yoakam,
Billy Ray Cyrus and Marty Stuart. Don't be surprised if you hear pop, rock, classical, and folk music
at our shows. Anything goes with us! Ever heard Beethoven's 5th symphony on the banjo,
or a reggae version of Country Roads? Whether at a large Festival or a small nightclub
The City Slickers are equally enjoyable to country & western enthusiasts and greenhorns alike.
