Based in Sioux City, Iowa, this versatile five-piece group is comprised primarily of members of the Iowa Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame. They have more than 200 years total professional playing experience, having toured with most of the stars who made the music of the 50's and 60's famous. Tight harmony and great stage presence make The Velaires the finest nostalgia band in the Siouxland area. Their repertoire is mostly rock, with a little bit of country thrown in.

Also appearing in smaller venues as a three or four-piece group, under the Silver Strings name, are the core members -- Don, Mike, Chopper, and sometimes Gene. You can find both groups appearing in Iowa, Nebraska & South Dakota, and maybe even Minnesota!
