Too Slim and the Taildraggers is an American rock band formed in 1986 in Spokane, Washington, United States.

Since 1986, Tim "Too Slim" Langford has been lead singer, guitarist, and main creative force behind Too Slim & the Taildraggers. Based in Spokane, Washington for decades, both Langford and the band have won numerous awards over the years including Best Band, Best Guitarist, Best Album, and Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achievement Awards from The Washington Blues Society, The Cascade Blues Society, and The Inland Empire Blues Society. Following the release of 2011's Shiver, the band packed up and moved to Nashville, Tennessee. There, with producer Tom Hambridge, they recorded Blue Heart which eventually hit number three on the Billboard Top Blues Album Chart.

The band currently consists of Tim "Too Slim" Langford (lead vocals, guitar), Polly O'Keary (bass, vocals) and Tommy Cook (drums). Tom Brimm (bass) and John Cage (drums) were both early members of the group.

To date, Too Slim and the Taildraggers have released 11 studio albums and five live albums. The Fortune Teller (2007), Free Your Mind (2009) and Shiver (2011) all charted in the Top 10 of the Billboard Top Blues Albums, peaking at numbers 9, 8 and 9 respectively.

The Inland Empire Blues Society named the band "Best Blues Band" in four consecutive years, from 1995-1998, while the albums Swamp Opera and Blues for EB were also named Best Albums. The Cascade Blues Association named them "Best Regional Band" for five consecutive years, 1995-1999.
