About The Silks

The Silks are a true grit rock and roll band out of Providence, RI. With two consecutive Boston Music Awards for “Blues Artist of the Year” 2016 and 2017, The Silks are well on their way to achieving a rightful place in rock ‘n’ roll history, or at least folklore.

The Silks deliver honest sounds of the blues-based rock ‘n’ roll variety. You’ve got guitar pyrotechnics galore from frontman Tyler-James Kelly, a rhythm section of Uncle Sam Jodrey on drums, Jonas Parmelee on bass, and Johnny Trama on rhythm and lead guitar. Fast songs, slow songs, it doesn’t matter. For this humble group of seasoned players it’s all about the dance floor, and with the right chemistry, the dance floor reciprocates.

The Silks have successfully supported a wide variety of national touring artists such as The Replacements, Rocky Erickson, Wanda Jackson, Dirty Heads, The Drive-By Truckers, Black Joe Lewis, Deer Tick, The Sadies, The Sheepdogs, Marcus King Band, Patrick Sweany, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, G Love & Special Sauce, and Marshall Tucker Band.
