|THE SILENT COMEDY|
|The Silent Comedy is a San Diego-based group of musicians mixing Americana,
Folk and Rock n’ Roll into a sound that is best understood by experiencing
their live show. Brothers Joshua and Jeremiah Zimmerman started the band to
capture the feeling of the bar culture they worked in and the revival meetings
they grew up attending. The outcome is an experience that has been described
as “a whiskey fueled tent revival.”
The Silent Comedy took to the road immediately after their first show and have
continued to build on that tradition. The brothers’ father was a preacher who
sold everything the family owned to travel the world, an experience that shapes
the lyrics and DIY ethic of the group. The band is made up of Joshua (bass/
vocals) and Jeremiah Zimmerman (keys, vocals, guitar) together with their
cousin Chad Lee (drums) and long time friend Justin Buchanan (mandolin/banjo).
The band has roots in the craft beer and cocktail scene in California that have
added to the rowdy reputation of their live shows. What started as a loyal base
of bartenders and beer brewers has grown to a community of dedicated fans
all over the world.
The band recently worked with Dave Matthews Band’s Boyd Tinsley on an
improvisational film/music project entitled “Faces in the Mirror.” This led
to The Silent Comedy opening for DMB at The Gorge in Washington state in
2011 and 2012.
Through placement in projects such as Hatfields & McCoys, starring Kevin Costner,
and the History Channel’s original series The Men Who Built America (to name a
few), The Silent Comedy has been able to reach an even larger audience that is
growing with each shot of whiskey.
