Formed in 2003 and hailing from North Carolina's Triangle Region, Slack Racket is part blues and part straight-up good-time roots of rock and roll fun. Slack Racket is mostly an energetic UP-tempo band but can also turn in a soulful Chicago club number when the mood strikes. Either way dancing is encouraged at a Slack Racket show.
In 2006 the band began focusing on their original material, and in the summer of 2007 released their debut CD, the self titled "Slack Racket".
Currently, they are preparing material and demos for their follow-up CD, for an early 2010 release.
The last year Slack Racket has shared the stage with The Fairlanes, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, Purple Schoolbus, The Tommy G Experience, and Big Mama E & the Cool.
