Silverman grew up in the shadow of Raymond Patriarca and James (Whitey) Bulger, bosses of Boston’s most infamous crime families. With a Jewish last name, his opportunities should have been limited in Boston’s Irish/Italian underworld, but he moved up quickly, gaining acceptance across the board. His book ROGUE MOBSTER is a firsthand account of the violent Boston mob wars of the 1990s, when bodies were piling up across New England and Mark Silverman was walking a tightrope between Winter Hill and the Mafia.
The Bogart Jones Band creates handcrafted, no boundaries, stories and music. A family of brothers from different mothers with diverse musical backgrounds, making "New Music with an Old Soul". The Band will be starting the year opening up for Legendary Southern Rockers, 38 Special, in February!
