Nightflyer brings to the table an incredible sound infused with soul, traditional bluegrass drive and an ability to truly stir your emotions.
These highly skilled musicians offer decades of experience between them and a respect and love for their craft that exudes each time they take the stage with their electrifying performance.
The band’s lead singer and guitarist Richard Propps consistently receives rave reviews on his powerful and often awe-inspiring vocals and excellent guitar playing. Superb mandolinist and occasional lead vocalist Rick Hayes spent four years touring nationally with the Gibson Brothers, and received a coveted Highlight Review from Bluegrass Unlimited on his solo CD, FLY BY NIGHT. Tony Kakaris is the rock solid heartbeat of Nightflyer on the standup bass, lending baritone as well as lead vocals to the group. Tim Jackson adds spice to the mix with his fiery dobro performances, and an occasional lead and baritone. Rounding out the sound is Ronnie Stewart, contributing killer banjo, and sweet lyrical tenor and lead vocals. Each individual is outstanding on their own, but this is truly a band that is greater than the sum of its parts.
“Flyer” fans everywhere will want to be on alert as there is a new project taking shape to follow the widely successful, RAIL RIVER & ROAD. The guys are in the studio and working on choosing the perfect mix of new material. Nightflyer performs all over the United States and Canada and can be found this year on festival stages like the Bean Blossom Festival in Indiana, Mandolin Farms Bluegrass Festival in Kentucky, Back Forty Bluegrass Festival in Missouri, and the Miamisburg Brewgrass Festival in Ohio, just to name a few.
