Silver City Bound is Road Music. Rebel accordion. American wanderlust. It’s the music you blast when you're driving 1,300 miles from Brooklyn to New Orleans. With soulful harmony and award-winning songs, the band has rock and rolled from sold-out shows at Lincoln Center to concert halls, iconic dive bars and major festivals in twenty-six states and six countries. And they’re just getting started.
Soul-singin', guitar-wailin' Alden Harris-McCoy (of The Rad Trads fame) has assembled a stellar line-up of musicians for a new band playing the music of New Orleans. We'll be playing hits from Allen Toussaint, Dr. John, Earl King and more at the legendary Radegast beer hall in Brooklyn.
