Quicksilver Messenger Service

Quicksilver was born during the '60s music explosion and was instrumental in the San Francisco Sound of the era. Founded by Dino Valenti, John Cipollina, David Freiberg , Jim Murray, and Casey Sonoban in 1964, their first recording, released in 1968, featured Cipollina, Duncan, and Freiberg with Greg Elmore, who joined the band in '65.

The band toured the Bay Area extensively in the mid to late sixties and were featured on bills with the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane.

Tonight's show consists of a collection of live performances with fan made slide shows and static images. Unfortunately there was a dearth of live performances available. I've finished off with several videos of performances by the currently reconstituted band.
