R&B/Soul/Blues Act

Sly-Chi


They’ve been around for more than a decade, infusing Portland and Maine venues with their energetic combination of soul, funk, and R&B. With several singers, a horn section, and a bunch of rhythm musicians, longtime BMP favorite Sly-Chi fill a stage just as they fill a dance floor; it’s no wonder that local hero Spose had them as his backing band for recent gigs in Portland, Boston, and New York (after debuting the combo at last year’s Portland Music Awards show!). They’ve got shows lined up throughout the summer in Rangeley, Boothbay Harbor, and West Forks; catch them live for the full, booty-shaking effect. | slychi.com RUNNERS-UP: Kenya Hall Band, Zach Jones, Lyle Divinsky
