Aaron “SLIDE” Flynt - Vocals, Lead and Rhythm Guitar. Aaron has been playing the guitar for over 29 years and has been a member of local bands such as The Buffalo Zew Reveue, Numbers, 90 West, The J.C. Thompson Band, Keith Allen and the Cross Country Express, Fitzhugh and the Fanatics and Brimstone. Aaron’s style could perhaps best be described in the following way: Danny Gatton was raised from the dead in a ceremony conducted by Jimi Hendrix reincarnated as a Voodoo Priest. After the ceremony, they decided to go to the nearest bar. At the bar they got into a fist-fight with John Scofield who happened to be playing there that night. They wound up pushing him down a flight of stairs right while he was in the middle of his third set. Aaron’s playing sounds a lot like John Scofield did while he was falling down that flight of stairs.
Doug Field was inspired at a young age of 10 to start playing the drums, listening to the 60 & 70’s players like Buddy Rich, Gene Krupa, John Bonham, Ian Paice and Keith Moon. Then along came more greats: Neil Peart, Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl, Carter Beauford to futher inspire playing and learning technique. Doug studied with some of Buffalo’s greatest drum instructors; John Roland, Louie Marino, Jack Jackino, Ernie Grant, and currently studies with Jim Linsner. When asked why he still takes lessons... he answered “I’ll always be a student” Bands he has played with include: Infinity, Aragon, Slade Creek, Side Winder, Magic Mushroom, Triplicity, Work in Progress, and the 80’s rockers the “Original Two Hills Band”.
