Respected throughout the entertainment industry and praised for its musical integrity, (FLOYD & the FLYBOYS was the #1 rated R&B/blues band in a music industry poll conducted by Music Connection Magazine), the band prides itself on polished performances, exciting arrangements, and that intangible chemistry that results in “feel” or “soul” - something that just can’t be faked.


Seeing FLOYD & the FLYBOYS perform, it’s clear the guys’ work is a labor of love; judging by the typical audience response, the feeling is contagious… Whether it’s blues, rock ‘n’ soul, funk, or New Orleans R&B, no one does it all like FLOYD & the FLYBOYS!


When it comes to authentic live rhythm & blues, Floyd & the Flyboys delivers the goods. . ."

. . . a killer nine-piece band . . . great songwriting and arranging... and a kick-ass rhythm section - with fat, sass, and sparkle courtesy of the 'Fly-by-Night Horns.'

Expect a show that is consistently solid, top-to-bottom . . . Highly recommended!
