The Silk Road is a hard-rocking quintet from around Hamilton Ontario, plying their trade in original material, adrift in a sea of mediocre cover bands.
The band was conceptualized in the summer of 2005 by Jon Gallagher. In the Fall of that year, Mark Benninger (a longtime friend of Jon's) joined on drums. After several furtive collaborations with several bass players, over the span of 2 years, Jon contacted old friend George E thru the wonders of the internet. George brings his bass guitar skills to add to the lineup. Recently Shawn Brockway has joined on 2nd guitar to futher augment the powerful arrangements. The band's newest addition is the beautiful and talented Jen Workman on vocals.
The current lineup in place, the band continues to construct insightful and compelling songs that blur the edges of many different musical genres, from Surf twang and Rockabilly, to straight ahead hard rock.
