We are the Sounds of Silence from Rosalia, Washington - We started in the Summer of 1973. The original 4 guys just played at the 2005 All-Class reunion. Barry Watkins, D.J. at KEYF in Spokane is our bass player. We play 50's, 60's music for dancing. There was an earlier verison of the band that started in '63.  Today we have the Watkins Brothers - Barry and Scott, bass and drums - they play both, Greg Martin - guitar, Tracy Porter - guitar, everyone sings.

We rocked the Rosalia Fire Station on High School Reunion Weekend!

Scott Watkins - our drummer, has built several custom solid body guitars and basses.  If you want to see them write to Scott at SFWATKINS@MSN.COM   Tracy Porter (the former editor of Rockabilly Fanzine - Milkshake Mademoiselle") is writing for BLUE SUEDE NEWS an International Roots Rock Quarterly.  If you love cool vintage rock, R and B, rockabilly and outasite looking chicks, then write to BLUE SUEDE NEWS'  C0-Editor Marc Bristol  His wife (CO-editor) "Gaby" is a bass player in his new band.
