SliceFest 2018 celebrates its 7th anniversary on Saturday, June 16th as Birmingham’s largest food & music block party hosted by Slice Pizza & Brewhouse. If you love music, great food and brews, giving back and Birmingham then you don’t want to miss this festival. Slice Pizza & Brewhouse hosts the event to celebrate the restaurant’s anniversary and thank the Birmingham community for their continuous support. Over the past 6 years the event has grown to a full-blown festival bringing in local and regional music talent paired with local craft beer and specialty pizzas.
As with previous years, SliceFest is expected to welcome a SOLD OUT crowd on this 7th anniversary with patrons from Birmingham and across the Southeast. Community is what SliceFest is all about, not just a celebration of those that support Slice Pizza & Brewhouse, but a way to give back to the community. SliceFest has donated over $50,000 to Birmingham-based non-profits.

With a swagger reminiscent of the Black Crowes and a tight musicianship that will have you drawing comparisons to everyone from Led Zeppelin to the Allman Brothers, Nashville-based rock band THE VEGABONDS are just getting started. A mix of different musical interests ranging from Pink Floyd to Kings of Leon laid the groundwork for the band’s debut album, Dear Revolution, and its follow-up, Southern Sons.
Both albums received critical acclaim, and after multiple songs splashed onto independent music charts (“Shaky Hands” climbed all the way to the top spot on the IAIRA indie music chart), the band promptly took their songs on the road.
As one of the hardest-working bands in the southeast, THE VEGABONDS have won over thousands of fans by maintaining an exhaustive touring schedule. Hundreds of shows and two European tours later, the band finds itself on the brink of a global takeover. The band’s high-energy, guitar-driven brand of rootsy rock & roll has made them a favorite across the globe, and the next year promises to be a breakout one for the band on a national stage.[read more…]
