Laughing Waters is an Austin based indie band of very talented, seasoned musicians blending & bending genres from reggae to afro pop to rock & touching on folk, country, blues & swing. The core of Laughing Waters is a trio. Bob Slaughter & Lynette Perkins contribute finely crafted originals & Mark Sebly offers up a variety of fun loving rocking and swinging dance tunes. At times Jorge De Armas joins in on congas. This is truly a fun & inspiring band, infectiously danceable.

“Laughing Waters are bad ass! Worth it to go see/listen. You won’t find anything like them within a thousand mile radius. Amazing music, and real people playing. It’s a real band and music/people at its finest.” Todd Culbert (Hill Country Ramblers & Ghost Jam Players)
