Bio

Old guys still rockin' in the free world. With that phrase on Milwaukeerocks.com, Minneapolis 2005 transplant Barry Wightman quickly hooked up with Milwaukee veterans Rick Walters (lead vocals, guitarist, Desperate Measures), Mark Peterson (drums, Sevastopol) and guitarist Giles Colahan to form a band dedicated to Twang; non-bar band material and off the beaten track guitar-based gems. With great harmonies. Adding pro vocalist Jude Kinnear (Fred & Ethel) who is so good we can't get over it, and unbelieveable bassist David Partrick (The Paul Curtis Band, Hot Toddy...) a date with the Silvertones is like unzipping the back of your head and pointing a leaf blower in it. Well, not really.

With chiming 12 string guitars, lapsteels and clean electrics combined with rich acoustics and real-deal harmonies, the Silvertones are a strong whiff of great American vintage sounds.
