About Eldorado Slim
Where Bill Graham’s Fillmore East meets Detroit’s Club Mozambique you will find the sounds of NYC’s newest band, Eldorado Slim. Led by Little Feat Guitarist Scott Sharrard, the 6 piece lineup consists of some of New York City’s finest musicians. The band takes its name from an obscure Little Feat jam from the early 1970s.

Sharrard describes Eldorado Slim’s mix of 1970s instrumental covers as a blend of “acid funk and space spirituals”. The band takes their sound and repertoire from one of the richest chapters in American roots music history. Inspired by the consciousness expanding and hypnotic, improvisational funk of the era, music by artists like Grant Green, Eddie Harris, Lonnie Smith, The Crusaders, Cannonball Adderley, King Curtis, Chico Hamilton and Stuff. Eldorado Slim also nods to Scott Sharrard’s work with Gregg Allman and Little Feat by occasionally doing their own instrumental interpretations and arrangements of tunes from those iconic rock and roll songbooks.

Scott Sharrard is not only a member of Little Feat (since 2019) but was also the guitarist, musical director and Grammy nominated songwriter and producer for the Gregg Allman band (from 2008 until Greggs passing in 2017). Scott has been nominated for two Grammys and has released 6 solo albums under his own name as a singer/songwriter.
