Silvia Dee & the Boyfriend play rootsy blues music and deliver an upbeat performance as an engaging duo. Rob Deyman leads the groove with acoustic, resonator, electric guitar, mandolin, banjo and vocals. Silvia sings, swings out on the piano and rocks the accordion for a Latin groove or Zydeco style.
They were selected as Via Rail "artists on board" in 2019, travelling the east coast train route to Halifax and back to Montreal. They were also scheduled for the Via Rail cross-country western Canada route from Toronto to Vancouver as Artists on Board in 2020 when the global pandemic set aside those plans. In 2017 they performed at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennesse, representing the Grand River Blues Society.
