The J. Silverheels Band (JSB) is a Licensed Music Entertainment Business based out of Napa CA. A 4-5 piece band with a Lead Guitarist, Bassist, Saxaphone & Harmonica player, Drummer, and on larger shows, their piano player. All players sing lead vocals and harmonies making a nice rich beautiful sound. Although they have been tagged as Napa Valley’s Ultimate Party band, some say they are the Rolling Stones of the Napa Valley.

JSB plays Classic Rock ‘N Roll, Top 40 Pop, Motown, & Country. Songs from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. Beach Boys, Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Chuck Berry, Elvis, Bob Seger, Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughan, AC/DC, Wilson Pickett, Temptations, Jimmy Buffett, Johnny Cash, George Strait, Hank Williams Jr, etc etc… They tailor each event based on your music preference. Some people want more Oldies, some want more Classic Rock, some want Country, but most ask that they mix it up and play it all. Big Hits, Fun Hits, Huge Hits, Hits that everyone knows and loves. That’s the deal with the J Silverheels.

What separates JSB from other bands is their song selection, hands down. No ‘B’ Side songs. Only the Hits. Songs like Wooly Bully, Twist & Shout, Sweet Home Alabama, Party til the Cows Come Home, Proud Mary, Mustang Sally, My Girl, Pink Cadillac, Old Time Rock & Roll… just to name a few. They play about 15 songs per hour, more than any other band. No dilly-dallying in between songs, no long extended 10 minute songs, and no long half hour breaks. Non-Stop Music & Tons of Fun. That’s the deal. They are committed to the success of your event.

Founded in 1976, the J Silverheels Band has been playing throughout the Bay-Area, Napa, Sonoma, Solano, Contra Costa, & Alameda counties, towns such as Napa, Yountville, St Helena, Calistoga, Sonoma, Sebastopol, Santa Rosa, Fairfield, Vacaville, Suisun, Concord, & Clayton. JSB played every night club in and around the Napa Valley, Vallejo, and Benicia in the 70’s, 80’s, and early 90’s until they quit the club circuit to focus more on private events as well as bigger shows. Recent events include the Oakland A’s Annual Beer Fest at the Coliseum, Raley Field, Hopland Shokawa Casino, Twin Pine Casino, Peggy Sue’s All American Cruise, California’s Good Guys Car Shows, Jimmy Vasser Chevrolet’s Anniversary Celebrations, Napa Valley Cruisers Annual Christmas Parties, Napa Ballroom Dances, Leukemia/Lymphoma Light the Night Events, Ace Hardware Grand Openings, Hopland Fire Dept BBQ, Pleasant Hill Baseball Association Hoedown, Cloverdale October Festival & Pumpkin Patch, Montgomery Village Concert Series, Hidden Valley Lake Concert Series, Landmark Ballroom Fashion Show, Captain Niners Annual Christmas Dinner Dances, Napa Seniors Annual Events, Moose & Elks Lodge Events, Yountville Veterans Home Concerts, and countless other Shows & Events, Fairs, Birthday Parties, Wedding Receptions, Anniversaries, Reunions, Company Parties, Corporate Events, Barn Dances, Car Shows, Casinos, Wineries, Crush, Harvest, & Wine Release Parties, Country Clubs,Yacht Clubs, Backyard Barbecues, & Holiday Parties.

The J. Silverheels Band is affiliated with A-1 Pro Entertainment DJ/MC Music & Sound, so most events include recorded music for cocktail, dinner, and band breaks. They also use the Highest Professional Grade Sound System, JBL speaker system, and professional grade Shure microphones, so the band sounds nice and crisp and clear, and all at the perfect volume. A Full Music Service, Licensed, and with over 3,000 events under their belts, every one of them fun, exciting, and successful. Band leader, Joe Geremia says, “the best music came out of the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s, and even a bit of the 80’s. We’re here to keep that music alive. Rock & Roll is here to stay. It’ll never go away, and the way things are going, neither will the J Silverheels Band.
