Formed in 2011 by accordionist and keyboardist Sam Reider and guitarist Justin Poindexter, the pair got their start as The Amigos, busting into college parties like guerrilla mariachis, jumping on top of cheap furniture and singing Hank Williams songs. They quickly became infamous in the New York music scene and a favored opening act for artists like Jon Batiste and Stay Human, the Carolina Chocolate Drops, and Sam Bush.
New York City-based Americana band Silver City Bound plays road music. Rebel accordion. American wanderlust. It’s the music you blast when you’re driving 1,300 miles from Brooklyn to New Orleans. With soulful harmony and award-winning songs, the band has rock and rolled from sold-out shows at Lincoln Center to concert halls, iconic dive bars, and major festivals in twenty-six states and six countries. And they’re just getting started.
The group has a brand new EP coming out in March; to tantalize and tease your musical tastebuds, Silver City Bound is releasing a series of acoustic videos of songs which are not featured on the forthcoming EP, but that showcase the energy and capture the vibe of their live performance.
