Robert Leonard's Slippery Sneakers is a high energy Zydeco dance band that brings together traditional and contemporary Cajun/Zydeco roots music originating from Southwest Louisiana. Their sound is a spicy mixture of up-tempo Zydeco, Blues and Soul, Cajun waltzes, Creole, and a bit of Rock'n Roll, with a heavy emphasis on "the groove" to keep crowds dancing.
Slippery Sneakers has performed at nationally known Zydeco festivals all over the country, including almost every dance festival in New England, always to wide acclaim. Additionally, the band has routinely broken attendance records at many of the monthly Zydeco dances held around the region of "southern" New England.

The dictionary of American slang defines a 'whodo' as 'an extremely old, or wrecked car that the owner still drives like its new.' The Whodos have individually been on the road and racked up a good number of miles during their time just in the showroom alone. However, they still have plenty of miles to go, a full tank of gas, and are driving this baby like she just rolled off the assemby line.
The Whodos play a varied mix of contemporary Americana, old favorites from people like Dylan and Bruce Springsteen and their own original material. All acoustic with an electric edge.
Many years ago Walter Barlow and Joe Chirico met and formed a musical friendship that has lasted almost four decades. Although they both went their own way after quite a few successful years playing local clubs and outdoor concerts with their band Which Way they never really lost touch. A strange set of events and the reuniting of a few original members of the band put them together again. Given that they started as a two man acoustic act it seemed a logical place to return to. With the addition of Walter's oldest son on bass Mr.Whodo was born.
Equipped with music and lyrics of singer/songwriter/guitarist Walter Barlow (Limelight Magazines 2015 Male Vocalist of the Year), co-founder Joe Chirico on guitars and harmonica, journeyman Scot "Skip" Harris on bass and vocals, and multi-instrumentalist Bob Drouin (founding member of the band Pendragon); the Whodos perform their own brand of original Americana that has been described as "sometimes gritty, sometimes tender...songs you probably never heard, lyrics you won't forget."
