About Shades of Silver – Formal Band

Shades of Silver was formed to provide entertainment for any occasion. Whether you need a wedding band, an outdoor band, or a group for your black-tie event, Shades of Silver can meet your needs. Our individual tastes in music allow us to offer an eclectic variety of songs and sounds from the 30’s to the present — something for everybody. No matter what your preference, this versatile, dynamic group aims to get your toes tapping.

hades of Silver is available in configurations from two pieces for intimate settings, to a six piece blow-the-roof-off-the-joint party band. No matter what kind of event your planning, there’s a duo, trio, quartet, quintet, or sextet ready for you!

DUO
(the “shake your bon bon” package)

If you have a limited budget or limited space, Shades of Silver can be booked as
a guitar/percussion duo. The Shades of Silver duo can crank out enough energy to
give life to your party, but also is a great choice for smaller, more
intimate gatherings.

TRIO
(the “let’s get it started” package)

You can add a bass player to the duo for greater depth of color and soul.
If you’re looking for a group with great range and a varied sound, the
trio might be just what you’re looking for.

QUARTET
(the “party like it’s 1999” package)

If you want to have dancing at your event, we would recommend at least the quartet Adding a drummer to the mix gives the group more punch and energy, and helps everybody on the floor keep the beat. It’s a great
choice for dances or weddings.

QUINTET
(the “turn this mutha’ out” package)

The quintet adds another keyboard / vocalist to the mix, giving the group an even fuller sound
and greater range.

SEXTET
(the full “Earth, Wind and Fire” treatment)

This is our most popular configuration. Adding a saxophone to the quintent gives the group a big band sound, perfect
for big events.

So… Whether it’s music to go with dinner, a private party, or your
wedding reception — vocal or instrumental — Shades of Silver is available in
as few pieces as two and as many as six. Ask us about instrumentation
that can be added to the group.

We can customize the best combination at competitive prices. For estimates
and booking information, please contact
us. A demo package is available upon request.
