Chris Brooks & The Silver City Boys are a premier Minnesota-based Country Rock band. This high-energy, dynamic 5-piece with great harmonies mixes Current Radio Hits with Texas and "Red Dirt Country" and their spin on the Classics to keep the dance floor packed.
Chris fell in love with Texas and "Red Dirt" Country Music when he attended Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth. After moving home to Minnesota, Chris knew he wanted to share his love for that sound in the North.
As a performer, Chris mixes an edgy baritone voice with warm, deep, bass vocals setting him apart from most other country singers.
Chris Brooks has shared the stage with country legend David Allan Coe, Mark Chesnutt, Gloriana, Jason Boland and The Stragglers, Sammy Kershaw, Reckless Kelly, Pat Green, Eli Young Band, Randy Houser, Trent Tomlinson, Whitey Morgan & The 78's, Two Tons of Steel and The Randy Rogers Band.
