Eric Slim Zahl & the South West Swingers represented Norway in the 2016 European Blues Challenge in Torrita di Siena, Italy in April. Little did we know what a great experience this should prove to be for our band.
We are incredibly humble when we refer to ourselves as the 2016 EBC Winners!
We met so many great people, artists and bands in this Challenge and we highly respect all the different styles, talent and all the different ways to perform the blues. We made some new friends and we had absolutely the best time in Italy. Winning the 2016 EBC also means playing some of the biggest blues festivals in Europe.
For Eric Slim Zahl & the South West Swingers, this means getting an instant foothold in the European blues scene, and a chance to promote our band and our music there!
* In 2019 The South West Swingers split up as a band, Eric Slim Zahl is continuing making music under the name Eric Slim Zahl.
Eric Slim Zahl and the band are touring all over the World and gig listings range from B.B. King´s Blues Club on Beale Street, Memphis, TN, US through festivals, venues and clubs in Italy, Spain, Basque Country, Portugal, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway.
