The Silvertones – One Chance With You
In 1973, Steve Nardella had a group called the Vipers which included drummer, Fran Christina, bass, Sarah Brown and guitarist, George Bedard. They recorded the very first record for Blind Pig Records (001).
Then came the Silvertones, which also included guitarist George Bedard. They were a big influence in the roots-music rival that was happening in the mid-1970s. They traveled to Austin, Texas to California, and to many other spots through-out the U.S. This was before such groups as the Paladins and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, (which included Fran Christina). The Silvertones released an album, also on Blind Pig, called "One Chance With You", in 1977. It was well received by the critics and still retains a following of fans.
