In the late '80s and early '90s, guitarist Jack Silverman played with local acts such as the Janglers, ACO (Afro-Cleveland Orchestra), Joe Bell and the Swing Lizards, and the Sky Dogs before relocating to Nashville.

He currently plays with the Grateful Dead cover band, the Stolen Faces. The group has just announced that it'll perform at 9 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, at A.J. Rocco's.

“I know a Dead cover band is hardly a rarity these days, but we are one of the better ones out there, featuring some top Nashville players,” says Silverman in an email announcing the show.

He says the band plays steadily throughout the Southeast, and he's particularly excited to return to Cleveland where he was once a "steady fixture" on the local music scene.
