The thunderous in-the-pocket rhythm section and dual guitar players - seasoned beyond their years - give the band fullness and versatility that sets them apart.

Patsy Silver-lead vocals - has been all over this country and beyond performing From NYC to Las Vegas and Atlantic City casinos, to Corpus Christi Texas saloons, Patsy has captivated every audience she's encountered. Opening act for national bands such as The Beach Boys, Jefferson Starship, Styx, Mark Farner from Grand Funk Railroad, Billy Powell from the legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd band and back-up vocals for the late Lou Rawls, Patsy has had a plethora of R&R experience. Recording her first album in Nashville, Tenn. at the age of 25, with the use of Eddie Arnold's band, she had a regional #4 hit called, "Roll Call at Lou's" with co-singer and songwriter Robert L. Adams on RLA Coastal Records. It's been said that Patsy could get a sect of Buddhist monks, sworn to silence and meditation, up dancing, singing, and partying all night long. (I'm pretty sure this has actually happened several times). Since her return off the road, Patsy has played with local bands Mission and Trick, and has recorded a Christian Rock CD, along with fellow drummer Johnny D' and a CD for 97 Rock Superbowl parodies (Go Axe Dallas). Patsy is also the host, along with Dottie, of Patsy Silver Sings Variety show and the stewart of Creation Performing workshop.com....workshops in vocal, acting , modeling and drill
