We are currently seeking musicians and at least one passionate music aficionado to organize performances and events.

Small Business & Non-profit Promotions

A clean, low-profile delivery of background ambience designed to “break the ice” between guests at your small business or non-profit event: Networking small business mixers, art shows, winery events, porches, gardens, even weddings. Also perfect for campfires.

Slab Wilders can deliver soft acoustic instrumentals non-stop, OR he can engage your guests with classics in folk, blues, country, or rock. The approach is up to you, designed to fit the occasion. “Trendy” does NOT describe what you get from Wilders. Only tried and true timeless classics; some you know, and a few that will be new to you

Wilders performs solo on acoustic guitar and harmonica, normally in quiet settings where no amplification is required. However, Wilders can amplify if needed while still retaining the pleasant acoustic sound and feel.

Wilders has performed across Missouri, and Montana in years past. And most recently at local wineries, art shows, and weddings.
