"SLIP OF THE TONGUE" (Adelaide Party Band) plays covers of popular dance hits from the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's & 90's. It is a 3-person, sequenced band featuring male & female Vocals, Guitars and Bass.
HISTORY:In 1990, after being known as the "The Beatmakers Showband" since 1988 (which catered predominantly to Corporate Events requiring full costume changes), the members decided to start a fun Party Band called "SLIP OF THE TONGUE" to be run simultaneously. In 1994, they also started a 50's Rock 'n' Roll Band called "Pinky & The Pontiacs". Their last show as "SLIP OF THE TONGUE" with the original line-up was held on New Year's Eve, 1995, at the Top Of The Ark (Arkaba Hotel). For full Band History, click here: "Memory Lane"
In 2011, after 16 years apart, 4 out of 5 of the original members decided to reunite, along with the addition of a 5th member. They performed together for 2.5 years, up until New Year’s Eve 2013, when two of the members decided not to continue on. In 2014, "SLIP OF THE TONGUE" became a sequenced Trio, featuring three Vocalists who deliver full, rich harmonies, along with Guitars and Bass, playing a wide variety of different genres of music spanning 5 decades -- something to suit everyone's tastes and dance-styles!

The band has invested in a state-of-the-art "QSC" PA system, to provide your event with the highest quality and clarity of sound, which allows them to play at a comfortable volume -- punchy, but not offensive -- which can be "let loose" if required! Click here to hear our YouTube Demo Clips.
The band is able to cater to a variety of occasions/venues including Pub/Club gigs, Social Club Functions, Corporate Events, Private Parties (Birthdays, Weddings, etc), both large and small.
