  • About

    Plainfield Slim is the blues alter ego of singer/songwriter Gar Francis.

    As solo projects under the Gar Francis name, there is Plainfield Slim & The Groundhawgs, a very raw, hypnotic, Mississippi type juke joint blues band. Band members include Lee Fink (from Nasty Ned and the Famous Chili Dogs) on slide guitar, fellow Doughboys Myke Scavone on harp, and Mike Caruso on bass, and Myke's little brother Rocco Scavone on drums.

    Plainfield Slim & The Groundhawgs have released their second CD “When The Devil Hits Home” after much global success from “Another Mule In The Barn” the first Plainfield Slim album. Songs such as “Dirty Girl”, “Moan”, “Hideout”, “Marlene”, and “Sweet Jesus” have been receiving airplay around the world as well as here in the US.

    Both CD’s are available on CD Baby and as downloads on iTunes, Rhapsody, etc.

    Plainfield Slim & The Groundhawgs bring a kind of excitement to the stage that is like no other blues band in the area. The songs are simple and right to the point and can make a grown man cry. F
