The Silver Dimes Ready to go LIVE!



With news of a much-awaited fourth album filtering through in the last couple of weeks, Dutch blues band, The Silver Dimes, is over the moon but also just as excited by the thought of doing more LIVE shows!
"The band looks forward to completing it's 4th album and going on stage even more. We hope to keep on playing in our own style and writing our own music. Who knows, maybe one day get covered by other artists, that would be a significant and meaningful accomplishment!
"We are currently working on new original material and probably keeping the same concept and also include covers that match our own style. We hope to have it ready by the beginning of 2019. We are also focusing on live performances where we can reach out to the audience and put up a show. Live performances are one of the best advantages we have as entertainers and we not only draw energy from them but they keep us motivated and inspired.
"We are working on fulfilling our agenda with Dutch and international events. You can catch us in Germany next for an engaging gig, but also keep an eye on us, there are more exciting events to come!", said member of the group Ron Stam in a recent chat with Urban Craft magazine.

The Silver Dimes are of course fully-fledged members of the Dutch Blues Foundation, an initiative that promotes blues music and the good reviews in several blues magazines that have come their way and the airplay from radiostations all over the world have over the years opened up countless doors for the band, especially in terms of live shows.
"Our live performances on stage led to a special invitation, the opening of the International Blues Festival in Sighisoara (Romania).
"This was our first event abroad and on the same stage that many blues legends had been before, like for example Johnny Winter, Candye Kane and many others. We played our second album ‘Electrifiying’ for the first time and we got a great response from the audience!
"With such big shoes to fill and being part of a great line up for the 13th edition of the festival, we went full speed ahead. A live version of the same performance became our 3rd CD: Double Trouble, Live @ Sighisoara", he said.

Since autumn of 2015, when The Silver Dimes was formed, the group has managed to set up quite a solid fanbase and says that it is the appreciation from the fans that keeps it going further and coming up with new projects.
3 albums and many live performances later, The Silver Dimes are playing with the same enthusiasm and have every intention of carrying on and remaining true to the blues!
"Since the release of our debut CD ‘No Cure No Pay’, making music together has been amazing and we have had a lot of fun. It has all worked out so good that we managed to release 2 more albums so far; ‘Electrifying’ and ‘Double Trouble, Live @ Sighisoara’.
"Being totally independent, it also has been a marvelous journey through the industry, finding our way in regards to music rights, releasing, marketing, among other things", said Ron.

Prior to The Silver Dimes, the band members had all been involved in different blues bands and projects but came together to form one of the most talented emerging music groups.
"After starting The Silver Dimes we got a lot of inspiration and started to not only put out covers (like ‘No Cure No Pay’), but also create our own music. The second album proved to us that things were working out and we were on the right path. All the songs from the Electrifying album are our own except for one cover, which is our way of paying tribute to great blues artists (In this case ‘Double Trouble’ written by Otis Rush).
"Apart from recording and releasing music we kept on going with our live performances, being on several Dutch stages such as Affligem Blues Festival in Delft, Blues Festival Nunspeet and Mirliton Blues Night. At one time we were invited to perform with Cee Cee James (USA)", said Stam.
