2014 - Spirit Award
Band Members: Russ Allen, Mike Zscherry, Bob Zuber, Paul Abodeely, Kevin Witte
Silver Wings is a Beatles tribute band playing the songs that Fab Four made famous during the early 60s. Friends Russ and Mike started playing some favorite Beatles' tunes in their spare time for fun. Bob, who played bass, was added to the group as well as Kevin, to play drums. Each band member has been playing music since they were kids and each really enjoyed playing the music they grew up loving.
After enjoying the process of making music, the group set out on their first gig, playing for the wedding reception of Russ’s son. With a supportive crowd and the taste for live gigs running in their veins, Silver Wings decided to get together to play professionally.
Silver Wings has played all around Eastern Iowa, including the Amana Oktoberfest, the Cedar Rapids Elks Club, the Electric Park Ballroom, the Roof Garden in Arnolds Park, St. Jude’s Sweet Corn Festival, the 2009 Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Fundraiser and many others.
