Role Description

Slow Drag: (Supporting) possibly a rather large man. Intelligent with a wicked smile. Got his name from 'Slow Dancing.' Innate African Rhythms underlie everything he plays and he plays with an ease that is at times startling. Plays bass in Ma's band--music will be recorded, but skill in this instrument would be a plus. Must be comfortable singing the blues.
