Colin here! On April 1st, a couple of Silver Bullet's own, including the almighty "pedal-tech" gathered in Seattle to attend the Metal Alliance at Studio Seven. Little did we know we were going to consume so much alcohol! (thanks Joe for the free shots). So here we are in the bar, looking at 3 inches of blood drinking some Rainiers in the corner. With liquid courage on our side, we got the honor of hanging out and getting some pics taken with them. I couldn't ask for a better way to spend a good April Fools. Make sure to rock hard bullet fans and GOODNIGHT
We've got New York on our minds as we head into spring. Thinking about selling our stuff to get the money to fly, playing for the people and chomping at the bit to get some outside gigs when the outside weather improves. If you're looking for us, the best way to find us is to hire us yourself. We love doing parties at homes. It's fun for us and we get to hang out with the fans. Email us and we'll put on the party your neighbors will envy!
YEAH that's right. We're going to New York to play on The Real Radio Show June 18. What more can be said?
Cindy here. No, we didn't have hangovers after playing at Hard Rock Seattle, but we took a break to recollect after the gig. We don't have any shows booked, but we are working on getting some more good covers down for our summer gigs. Honestly, playing live music is a grueling task when venues want you to pay to play, get YOUR music for free, collect all the bar tabs and share nothing with the musicians. As the manager, I find it terribly exploiting the way the venues take advantage of acts. And the musicians want to play so badly, they badger all their fans to buy tickets, or worse yet, they give away tickets they buy themselves to get into a club. It is a sad state of affairs that will only stop when musicians decide to stand their ground. Really, acts should be there to help the venue build a following. We shouldn't have to always depend on our tried and true fans to travel miles and miles to hear us. We'd like to play to a more diverse crowd. If the venue is cool and hires great acts, the people will come. Ok that is my rant about a lame business model for today. Most of the band will be blotto on St. Patty's day, apparently, keep your eyes open for Silver Bullet in a bar near you in Olympia!! If they fall in the gutter, will you kick 'em out of play until I can go get 'em out of trouble? Thanks fans. You ROCK!
Yup, we had to do it to get the site, but hey, the world is full of shorthand now in this txting, html, IM world.
We are happy you found us here. We would like to keep you up-to-date on our gigs and events, so please get on our email list. You'll get an email every other week or so with insider info, opportunities for merchandise and early ticket purchase and free tickets just for being on the list!
Thanks for your support and rock ON!
What's better than seeing 3 great local acts perform at the Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle? Seeing Silver Bullet play with them! In just under 24 hours, Silver Bullet will be playing their hearts out to their fans, old and new, at the Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle. But if you're still trying to decide if you want to go, I'll just have to give you a couple reasons to go!
1) There hasn't been a show that we've been more prepared for. Every practice something gets tweaked, something gets fixed, making us a more cohesive band as a whole.
2) If you think you've seen all there is to Silver Bullet on stage, think again! Slowly and surely we've all been letting loose and coming into our own. We are pumped for this show and it will show when we hit the stage.
3)It's at the Hard Rock Cafe on a FRIDAY NIGHT. You are guaranteed a good time!
If that hasn't convinced you, you're probably not trying to have a great night with AWESOME live local music. But, since we both know you're going to go, I'll see you there -Cody
Cindy here. Soon these blogs will be written by the boys. Full disclosure: If you don't know already, I am the manager and mom of James. Yeah, it seems kind of cliche, but they needed someone to advocate for them and manage the business side of things, so they asked me. Silver Bullet practices in a cramped garage space at our house. Sometimes I feed them. It is like having four more sons. I will feed them and love them and help them anyway I can, but when it comes to business they are not coddled by me. I am tough on them and we have had our rows, that's for sure. James told me Motley Crue's manager used to punch some of the band members in the face before a show. Believe me, I have felt that frustration!
This journey, I know, is going to be long and amazing for Silver Bullet, and it's cool to play a part. They are talented and are truly becoming one cohesive unit with many fascinating facets.
Youth is wasted on the young, fer sure. But I am trying to help them make the best of it without smothering and bossing them too much.
They are going to be great Friday night, no doubt about that. I hope the judges see they are Seattle's best so they can go global, kick ass and head to London, where they will be a SMASH hit, I'm sure.
Five days and Silver Bullet will play the show for which they were born to play,
Five guys, big beat, guitars, a unique perspective and the voice to deliver.
Hard Rock Cafe Seattle, Friday night, March 2. Tix at the door $12. Don't hesitate to go online because this show could SELL OUT
Grats to Ayron Jones and the Way for winning round 1.
Hey fans! Cindy here, telling you a secret. James, Tyler and I are going to Seattle Hard Rock tonight to check out round 1 of the Hard Rock Rising 2012 Seattle battle. Since we've never played there, we want to see the setup before we play next Friday. Also, we want to meet some of the other bands=but mainly, we want to find out who wins and see their performance first hand.
Silver Bullet is holding a long rehearsal session Sunday and a short one on Monday. That will be it until the Battle Friday night March 2. If you don't have your tickets yet, now is a good time, because the capacity is limited and all of these bands have pretty good fan bases. Let's show them how Silver Bullet Nation rocks.

SEE YOU THERE!
Well it seems the music scene is shrinking in the PNW as far as Silver Bullet being on the outside. The Hard Rock thing has turned a lot of strangers to our music and we're connecting with other bands in the area.
People love live music if they have the time and the money to see it and it has to be good. In today's economy there is so little time and money left over after the basics, artists need to be their very best to earn a place in peoples' lives. One sure way to never get that fan is to give them a shitty time when they took time away from life, put their money down for your tix and went to see you play a crapass show. Fans deserve %100 plus and that is what we go to the mat planning to do for each and every performance. It's how it should be if you are really an artist and love what you do.
I hope the judges and the fans see that side of Silver Bullet at the Hard Rock Battle. The other bands are just as passionate, too, so we will see who rises to the top this one night, this one time, when a LOT is riding on a GREAT show.
