On the Sly has been touring regionally over the past 8 years. Their music is original and inspired. Frequently showcasing guest artists from around the world, On the Sly’s shows are always an exciting and memorable experience. On the Sly handles all of the booking and managing internally and has created a plethora of life long networking partnerships as a result of this grassroots action. Many of the visiting artists from around the world that the Slyboots School intends to feature are perfect examples of the partnerships made through their touring efforts.
Featuring a multitude of repertoires, On the Sly has the ability to entertain in a vast number of contexts. The core trio of musicians have all been trained to the hilt in classical, jazz and various world styles of music. A wide range of cover material and original material makes On the Sly the perfect band for a wedding, family reunion, parties of all sizes, music festivals, restaurants, bars, clubs and community events.
On the Sly is available for studio work as well. In addition to recording their own original material, the group also excels in film scoring, composing and performing commercial music of all genres and doing session work as backing band. Rates for On the Sly recording sessions are based on a case by case instance. Please contact us for more info.
On the Sly is also available for workshops. These workshops can be taught in the school or at the patron’s location. Workshop topics include (though are not limited to); Rhythm Study, Harmony Study, Melody Study, Improvisation Study and Composition Study. Each topic can be broken down and explored in an interactive manor in conjunction with the pedagogical framework of Griffin’s unique and revolutionary musical method, "The Slyboots Guide to Life and Drumming".

This is our way of giving back to the music community and culture that offers us so much. We've all learned a lot from past experiences and each SlyFest gets better than the last! This one will grow into our new location and promises to be our best yet!
Besides music, arts, and camping you'll find (and help create) a great atmosphere and a great crowd of music-loving individuals. But this year's SlyFest promises vendors for foods, music, paintings, clothing, accessories, crafts, and everything else you'd hope to find. If you have something to share then bring it, too!
