ABOUT

Versatile 5-string pocket bassist with strong stage experience & some studio experience, a quick study, flexible, creative and dependable. I enjoy a wide range of music from classic rock, blues, funk, R&B, southern rock, pop, modern and outlaw country to alternative and and even a tad bit of jazz. My musical comfort zone lies in support of a song's foundation and if I get to be funky at the same time, all the better. Have top-of-the-line professional equipment (see "Equipment" list below).

As you may hear by listening to the attached tracks (headphones recommended), I have been exceptionally fortunate to have played with outstandingly talented musicians. For that I am greatly thankful.

History:

Replaced the last original member in The Nightcrawlers. Opened for Bob Seger with them. Played ahead of The Allman Brothers in Cincinnati at a huge underground nightclub called Reflections. Met Gregg Allman there, one of the good guys, indeed. The Nightcrawlers worked out of Cincinnati through AJaye Agency. Thank you, Mr. Hertzman and Mr. Silverman.

Shared the stage with guitarist Adrian Belew (King Crimson, David Bowie, Talking Heads) for a couple of years before he joined Frank Zappa. Our band, Sweetheart, once entertained Steven Tyler, who stayed all night to hear us at a Nashville club called Fanny's and graciously had us backstage for Aerosmith's show the following evening. Very nice. Our original guitarist was Joe Madrigal, an exceptional guitarist & entertainer (see www.madrigalband.com). Sweetheart worked out of Nashville through Cresent Moon Entertainment. Thank you, Tony Moon.

Left music performance in the 80's for a career in information technology (IT). My IT resume may be found at steveflacy.com.

Returned to the stage in 2006 with an Upstate SC group called 99 Cents. Played with an alternative group called The Jones Machine and an 80's group called The Doc Brown Band. Was a founding member of Fat Cat Daddy, featuring the amazing Mr. Tim Everette. Next I was a member of Hands Down, then Squeeze Play, a 6-piece that expanded to a 9-piece with a cookin' horn section. Am now a member of The Vinyl Junkies, a group that plays hits from the 60's and 70's.
