Tim Silke - Guitars, Keyboards, Mandolin, Vocals
Tim was born in Palo Alto, California and moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1978. He has been playing since he was 10 years old when he formed his first band in Redlands California. By the age of 15 he was playing in local clubs.
Tim can play drums, bass, harmonica and keyboards, but his absolute FAVORITE is guitar and vocals. Tim grew up singing in the church, with his mom having a huge impact on his love for music. She was an accomplished and signed classical and gospel singer. Both his parents supported him unconditionally, even though his favorite genre of music was so different then theirs.
Tim has played with several bands over the years from California to Washington State including Sing Out Redlands (affiliated with Up With People), Beat Nervosa, Generic, Chicken Joe and 27 years with The Woodies. Played at some exciting Venues including Bite of Seattle, The Space Needle, Bumpershoot, Doc Maynards, The Puyallup Fair, House Band for Gig Harbor Tides Tavern for 10-years, Snoqualmie and Crystal Mountain, opening for the DeFranco Family in California, Ken Griffey Jr's birthday party at the King Dome and the Old Firwood in Tacoma, are just a few!
