OIL CITY SLICKERS
Roy Hayford was originally misdiagnosed as a trumpet player, converted to the French horn at a young age, branched out into vocal music, took up guitar, drifted toward drums, then returned to vocals after retiring from Wyoming Symphony Orchestra and the Casper Municipal Band in 2015 and 2020, respectively. After a year of singing with the Oil City Slicker Barbershop Chorus, he took over as director of the group in 2015. Oil City Slickers was founded in 1968, and is a chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society, an international organization devoted to the preservation and performance of barbershop music.
