Band History

Reunion with Kyle Copeland at Tap Inn in GrapevineThe Silvertones were founded in 1993 by Brian Wicker and Kyle Copeland. The original line-up included Joe Williams (bass), Brent Childers (drums) and Bill Jones (vocals). Their inaugural gig was at The Filling Station in Terrell , Texas.

Like all bands, The Silvertones have had several line-up changes through the years. One of the most influential Silvertones members was Walter Delesandri on lead guitar. Sadly, Walt passed away in 2003 from a massive heart attack—he is still greatly missed. Walt’s widow, Carol, maintains a strong connection with the band as their friend and freelance photographer.

The Silvertones’ music—about half of which is original—reflects the various influences that the band members grew up with. It's primarily blues, with hints of jazz, swing, rockabilly and rock and roll.

The Silvertones have recorded three CDs:

  • Cruisin, which was self-produced in 1999,
  • Hot in The Hole, which was recorded live in July, 2002, at The Hole in the Wall in Dallas , Texas , and
  • Ride in My Cadillac, which was produced by Deep South Productions in 2005.

Averaging 80 gigs a year, you can see The Silvertones live at Dallas and Fort Worth music festivals, clubs, restaurants, and even at Fort Worth Swing Dance Society dances. You can also book The Silvertones for private parties.
