Slick's Que Co., in downtown Sisters, has added live, acoustic music to the entertainment experience at their authentic pit-style restaurant.

This new live music venue will offer a wide range of original country, old Western, Cajun and folk music performing artists, in a family-friendly environment.

In order to better enjoy the music experience, the owners of Slick's Que Co. have added a stage for performers, complete with sound and lighting, for the Friday early evening shows.

"We were very set on the goal of providing a comfortable place for all ages to enjoy without staying up late, dealing with music that's too loud or distracting to have a normal conversion," owner Roy Slicker said. "We will bring in music that goes with the whole BBQ and Northwest theme. And, I think we'll surprise a lot of people with some artists that they would rarely see in a small venue, let alone a BBQ restaurant in downtown Sisters."

Slick's has signed Sourdough Slim for a Memorial Day weekend show. Sourdough is considered "Last of the Vaudeville Cowboys" and was nominated 2009 "Entertainer of the Year" by the Western Music Association. For more information visit www.sourdoughslim.com.

Slick's Que Co. will offer live acoustic music most Fridays at 6 p.m., with the first show this Friday, March 19, featuring the Western folk music of the duo Los Pistoleros (Charley Engel and Jim Cornelius).

Slick's Que Co. is located at 240 E. Cascade Ave.
