Performer Spotlight: Slam @ Five & Dime

“Every morning, every evening – ain’t we got fun?”

Hiya, Slam!

Hiya, Slam!

Slam is the “Ace of Bass” for the band of swinging musicians, Five & Dime, who perform on Buena Vista Street at Disney California Adventure.

But this guy’s not just the resident awesome upright bass player (I just love to watch him pluck those strings with such gusto!) – he’s the resident goofball as well!

From his big smile to his funny faces to his hearty belly laughs, what makes this guy stand out is how completely he throws himself into the physicality of whatever he’s doing, whether that’s laughing or playing the bass – he’s just absolutely physically PRESENT and completely engaged in his own silliness. And that’s a lot of fun to watch!

This guy always makes me laugh – when I’m not distracted by his fingers flying across that bass! 

Is he your favorite performer?
