The group now consists of Brian Wicker on bass, Randy Ball on drums and vocals, Leo De La Vega on guitar and vocals, and Rob Donavan on guitar and vocals.

Biography

“You might be surprised at the number of blues clubs around town: Keys Lounge, Deep Ellum Blues, Lota's Goat, Hole in the Wall, 6th Street Grill, J&J's, to name a few. It's hard to believe they can all stay in business, what with no radio station to support the genre like rock, hip-hop and Latin music receive. Even more interesting is that one band plays
so many of these joints it could single-handedly keep them all afloat. The Silvertones, four-time winners of the best blues award, have been rustling around Dallas since 1993,
and to put that in perspective, blues legend Stevie Ray Vaughan has been dead only three years longer than they've been together. It's an appropriate touchstone, as Leo De La Vega leads this rock-leaning blues group with loud howls and guitar wails that would make Vaughan a proud papa.” —Sam Machkovech, Dallas Observer
