Saxon Late Night Special: Slow Down Lady

Last night at The Saxon Pub, Austin band Slow Down Lady gave a tremendous performance for the late night special. This local blues rock band has formed some deep roots in signature Austin spots such as The Tiniest Bar in Texas, Carousel Lounge, The Saxon Pub, and Irie Bean Coffee Bar. The group’s expert balance between Big Bill Broonzy and Muddy Waters throw-backs and vocal lines reminiscent of Janis Joplin and Mavis Staples reveals the musical prowess engrained in each band member.


Singer Abby Peck has some killer pipes that will leave any music enthusiast wanting more and every female vocalist green with envy. Her feminine charisma reminds me of Austin favorite Toni Price, with a few more dance moves and little less whiskey. She has a vast talent that ranges from high-energy wailin’ to sweet, slowed down acoustic.

During the show last night the group played songs showcasing the many facets of Slow Down Lady‘s talented musicians, including originals and covers. Guitarist Keith Levy and Bass player Shelby Stephens both took the vocal reigns occasionally, and led a few themselves. Between jam numbers, acoustic sets, and rockin’ blues pieces, this group has something to offer the live music scene of Austin that can be appreciated and enjoyed by all.
