“If you like your blues with a down home greasy feel, you want to check out Chickenbone Slim and The Biscuits. Chickenbone plays in a traditional blues style, part Chicago, part Texas, part Mississippi, and all right! We at KPRI have worked with CB many times and he always puts on a top notch, professional show”
-Madison, Morning Show Host, 102.1 KPRI
“Chickenbone Slim’s sound is funkier than a hiccuping chicken walking backward.”
-Michael Kinsman, San Diego Blues Festival
About Chickenbone Slim
Chickenbone Slim is a bluesman living in San Diego, CA. He is the guitarist and vocalist for Chickenbone Slim and the Biscuits. Chickenbone started his band in 2012 and named it The Biscuits because biscuits are his favorite food. CB has been playing blues for over 25 years, and is influenced by Muddy Waters, Hound Dog Taylor, Johnny “Guitar” Watson and Tomcat Courtney.
Chickenbone is not sure where he came from, because he was real young when he was born, but he remembers his house had wheels and it was real hot. Chickenbone prefers telecasters, and plays through old amps like his 1946 Gibson BR-1 to get his unique tone. He is heavily influenced by Chicago and Texas Blues masters, as well as local artists like Tomcat Courtney, the Godfather of San Diego Blues.
The Biscuits are a four piece band, with Chickenbone singing and play guitar, Mike Chiricuzio on Bass, Bruce “Almighty” Stewart on drums, and “Big” Jon Atkinson on harmonica. The band plays a mix of old covers and new originals written by Chickenbone with humor and passion. You can catch Chickenbone Slim with The Biscuits every Tuesday from 6-9 p.m. at the Tasty Truck Round Up at Smitty’s Service at the corner of Adams Avenue and Hawley Boulevard. Please don’t tell the bill collectors! You can always get a free nickname from Chickenbone, but if you leave some cash in the tip jar you are more likely to get a good one.
