Twenty-five years, fourteen albums & hundreds of thousands of miles.
What a dream it’s been.

When I first got together for a garage rehearsal with a group of musician
friends in the spring of 1988 in Anaheim, California, I never dreamed that I
would someday be celebrating the silver anniversary of the rocking little band
that formed that afternoon.

Yet here I am, looking back over a wild ride that has taken us around the
world countless times, that has put us in front of national television
audiences, and – most importantly – that has given me the opportunity to
play the music that I grew up having such a passion for – Rockabilly, Rock &
Roll, Honky-Tonk, Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Doo-Wop… and now with the
release of our new all-acoustic album “What A Dream It’s Been”, even a
touch of Jamaican Rocksteady.

Putting together the new record for Cow Island Music has brought back a
flood of memories; we went through our entire catalogue of LP’s, picked out
some of our favorite original numbers, and gave them fresh new
arrangements, rhythms, and instrumentations.

In many ways , it was our way of looking back at everything that has led us
to where we are now, while looking forward towards new musical horizons.

Happy 25th Anniversary, Fly-Rite Boys! Here’s to 25 more!
Cheers!
