Eric Slim Zahl Official Website


2016 European Blues Challenge winner Eric Slim Zahl - a swingin’ experience with authentic blues, jump blues, rock’n roll and rockabilly played with full force!

Eric´s ambition is to continue the fine traditions and perform music influenced by the beatiful sounds of the 50's - in his own rockin' style.

All dressed up and somewhere to go with a neck tie, suspenders and shiny shoes, Eric performs his music with humor, musical skill and impact. And it´s always entertaining!


Since the band started in 2006, Eric Slim Zahl has logged an impressive amount of club gigs and festival appearances in Norway, Europe and the US, and are known to be a formidable live band.


In addition to winning the European Blues Challenge in 2016, the band made it to the semi-finals in the 2016 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN, US – a historic result for any international act.
