Shawn Holt: Shawn "Lil' Slim" Holt is the son of legendary blues master, Magic Slim, AKA Morris Holt. Shawn started playing the blues at the age of 17, when he went on the road with his father and his Teardrops, where he acquired the name from his late Uncle Nick Holt, "Lil' Slim". Shortly after that tour with his father Shawn formed his band, "Lil' Slim and The Back Alley Blues Band", with his god-brother, Jeff Boehmer, Joey Manthy & JJ King. Since then, Shawn played with the current band, The Blues Messengers and took a break after that. Shawn picked the guitar back up in 2009, while living in Minnesota and started the group, "True Sons of the Blues", with Jimi "Primetime" Smith, Tyson Bell and Allen Kirk, then later with John Lindberg. Moving back to Nebraska, he hooked up with some of his old band mates and new ones too and created "The Lil' Slim Blues Band", with the current list of band members.
