“Freddy Velas & The Silvertones ” … very unique Doo Wop Group than rare of its kind … in fact the songs they play are inspired by the Italian/American “Doo Wop” tradition, colored by the Velasquéz bros polyphonic choirs … The project was born in London (UK) November 1996; training with a trio (Fabrizio Velasquéz – guitar, Blasco Mirabella – doublebass and Stefano Velasquéz – drums)… after having participated on Hemsby ’97 Talent Show, with the song defined a symbol of Italy in the world …with their Doo Wop version of “Volare” (Nel Blu Dipinto di Blu – by Domenico Modugno), here they ranked the second! They continued ” Gigs ” even in Kensington Palace, during a Xmas Party on December 20th 1997 … Later on…their main desire was to bring the Doo Wop sound all over the world!
Once back in Italy, they became the “Little Tony” backing band with “Enrico Ciacci” lead guitarist said “The Maestro”and their doublebass player “Dino Gubinelli”… following tour for about 9 months traveling around Italy and the rest of Europe…
Today the band has expanded by adding a Tenor Sax (Vic Salerno) and a Piano (Clem Bernabei), to encourage the pursuit of “Old Vintage Doo Wop” sound perfection… a kind of ” Ever Green Music”! “Freddy Velas & The Silvertones ” continue to play around the Europe (Summer Jamboree – Italy, Summer Boogie Rome – Italy, Hultsfreed Hayride – Sweden, Screaming Festival – Spain, Americars – Sweden, – Twinlake Run – Sweden, Sh-Boom – Italy, etc…).Enjoy the Show!
