Spotlight: Slugs Revenge

Kevin Wycoff, Allen Johnson and Desiree Shaffer

It is such a privilege to have as our Spotlight Story of the Week Slug's Revenge Bluegrass from Florence, South Carolina.  
My daughter is friends with Desiree and I asked her about them.   She said, "Mama, they are my friends." They would get together at each other's homes and play music.  

I didn't know for a long time that they were so talented. I find it amazing the talent that is right in your own city or town If I could play instruments like these people look out~~Sadly I can't I do like to watch others that can though, for sure. I thought I would share them with you in pictures

A little about us...

     Kevin Wykoff started the music project Slug's Revenge over eight years ago in central Maryland. After touring around the country for six years he met Desiree Shaffer and decided to settle down and play music in Florence, SC.

 Once in Florence, Desiree and Kevin began playing with a local musician and good friend Allen Johnson. With Kevin on guitar, Desiree on upright bass and sometimes musical saw, and Allen on mandolin, fiddle and various eclectic instruments the band began playing regular gigs. After the move to Florence old friends Crystal Kanney and Pat Reagan also joined the band. Slug's Revenge play primarily original music, but also much of the traditional bluegrass, country, folk and old time music they all grew up on. The original music ranges from political ballads to songs rooted in historical folklore.
