After hearing an instrumental version of the old tango “Orchids in the Moonlight,” band leader Isaac Stanford realized that he had never seen a band perform a song like that, and he knew just the right musicians to make it work. Slowey and The Boats came together in early 2012 when Stanford recruited some fellow Philadelphia musicians (including David Streim & Freddie Berman from the Amos Lee band) to learn a selection of old steel guitar instrumentals. In addition to Stanford on the steel guitar, the quintet is currently comprised of David Streim on the Wurlitzer or Fender Rhodes, Mike Hlatky on upright bass, Fred Berman on drums, and Brennen Ernst on guitar.
