The inception of Silverspork began in November of 1998. Traversing through differing styles and genres of music, Silverspork delivers an intensely unique brand of music that captures both a new and old style while maintaining their own personal originality. Their influences draw heavily from the likes of Tool, Faith No More, Helmet, Fugazi, and many more. The lineup currently consists of Carl Abila on guitar, Brian Gretzinger on vocals, Mario Salcedo on drums, and Ryan Phillips on bass. The two founders and only original members (Carl and Brian) consummated this quartet with the addition of Mario and Ryan. Silverspork's live shows are nearly unmatched. This quartet delivers an inspiring array of emotion and energy that is delivered with the utmost level of intensity. It is with such intensity that they continue to expand their fan base and draw new listeners in. Perseverance has been one of the more key terms in describing their nearly six year history. As a band, they have overcome many obstacles, yet still they have managed to keep it together. Silverspork's passion is music, and their integrity has never been tarnished or stricken since their genesis. The love and determination for their art will keep them together forever.
