Silver Hammer is not a Beatles imitator band. We're merely admirators of the incredible music of John, Paul, George and Ringo. Instead of wearing the corny wigs, using pathetic British accents, bobbing heads, and performing like a stage play or a put-on Silver Hammer has taken a different angle. We've determined that the most important thing about the Beatles music was the feel and the groove. Our concentration is on creating that exact powerful drive of the Beatles. Although we do pay attention to singing the vocal harmonies exactly the way they were, playing the solos to perfection, putting in the signature harmonica parts etc., we don't use the exact Beatle equipment to achieve our sound. We ARE a real rock and roll band, not a cheesy replica. We also do much more than just the Beatles music. We perform the music of the Fab Four after the Beatles were defunct. Some examples are Paul Mccartney and Wings, Traveling Wilburys as well as some of their solo effort s as well. The members of Silver Hammer have decades of professional music experience. We are NOT an inexperienced new band, but a serious group of seasoned musicians and vocalists. Our cumulative history includes work with Rick Nelson, Juice Newton, Gary Lews & the Playboys, Iron Butterfly, Michael Quatro, the Lettermen and a large variety of national acts. We've individually recorded albums, singles, jingles, performed on the radio, tv and played every popular event, large and small, throughout the Detroit metropolitan area. With a history of experience thru an eclectic group of bands we've toured the country coast to coast working at concerts, hotels, clubs, weddings, private events in a multitude of cities too numerous to mention.
