The Band

Chris Brooks & The Silver City Boys are a premier Minneapolis-based country band. Their show is a combination of danceable current and classic country radio hits along with popular songs from modern Texas Country and Red Dirt.

Top musicianship, fresh song lists, steady exposure, and smart promotion has helped them become one of the biggest country draws in the upper Midwest. In the past few years they have performed nearly 400 shows, and continue to increase audience demand.

Their songlist includes hits by artists such as: Luke Bryan, George Strait, Jake Owen, Jason Aldean, Dwight Yoakam, Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Johnny Cash, Garth Brooks, Dierks Bentley, Waylon Jennings, Jason Boland, Kip Moore, Gary Allan, Reckless Kelly, Steve Earle, Stoney Larue, Josh Turner, Randy Houser, Montgomery Gentry, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Joe Nichols, Alabama, The Zac Brown Band, and much more.

Together they have supported many touring artists regionally, having shared the stage with Thompson Square, Randy Rogers Band, Jason Boland, Gloriana, Kentucky Headhunters, Dale Watson, Wade Bowen, Reckless Kelly, Whitey Morgan, Little Texas, Turnpike Troubadours, JT Hodges, Jaron & The Long Road to Love, and many others. Previously, Chris has appeared with David Allan Coe, Mark Chesnutt, Sammy Kershaw, Reckless Kelly, Pat Green, Eli Young Band, Randy Houser and Trent Tomlinson.

Now, why the "Silver City Boys"? And just who are these guys?

St. Paul, MN is known as The Silver City and the band is based in the Twin Cities. Also, the "boys from Silver City" are mentioned in Chris' favorite Robert Earl Keen, Jr. song, "Feelin' Good Again".

The Silver City Boys are a mysterious group of outlaws. They are wanted in 50 states and in Mexico. Some say their long hair gives them their strength. Others say it's beer. They play hard and then ride away.
