David Kume - Resonator Guitar/Vocals
Rudi Testa - Bass Guitar/Vocals

Lachlan Neate - Tenor Saxophone
Brad Tabe - Washboard

After 10 years of performing 5-6 nights a week at Dracula’s Cabaret Gold Coast to over 739,000 guests spread across the board, David and Rudi are ready to retire their fangs and finally lay to rest Dracula’s resident band ‘The Spine Crunchers’ and are looking forward to being released back into the mortal light pursuing Slips & The F.W.’s as their number one priority act.

Having gained a trusted following over the years, Slips & The F.W.’s are guaranteed to attract intimate audiences of anywhere between 15-30 people or more for small 'Speakeasy' venues around the Gold Coast but are more than capable and experienced to perform to crowds of over 600+ and will be available as of October 2018 to play shows from Northern NSW up to the Sunshine Coast.

Available for both Casual and Corporate Events, Slips & The F.W.’s are excited to bring a taste of New Orleans to the South East QLD creating a fun and exciting atmosphere, it’s bound to be a hoot wherever they perform!
