We started in 1981 with the 4 piece band Fly By Night. Over the years we would get together and play random gigs and many people were part of that group. We are now sort of retired from the life of playing at dances and pubs and now play music we enjoy. John has been composing and recording his originals for a couple of decades and now has well over 40 songs in his catalog.
So the originals that fit our instrumentation are a focus of out sets. We are always adding new songs both original and old cover tunes to our set and now have over 70 songs we can choose from.
We collectively have performed at just about on every type of venue from huge festivals to our monthly gig at the old folks home here in Grand Forks.
Those hippy bluegrass and country rock, honky-tonk crossover bands from the 60's and 70's.
Alto 12" powered speakers Mains, Mackie 10" powered speakers monitors. Yamaha and Soundcraft mixers. John uses a TC voice live acoustic and a Radial Tone Bone Beta 58. Curt uses a SM 58, SM 57 and Barcus Berry Pre amps. We run the Bass backing track through a Fender Rumble 100.
