ABOUT

Hell no, I ain't 19.

I am a versatile pocket player with strong stage experience & some studio experience, a quick study, flexible, creative and dependable. My musical comfort zone is in support of a song's foundation and if I get to be funky at the same time, all the better.

I enjoy a wide range of music from classic rock, blues, funk, R&B, southern rock and modern country to alternative, progressive and jazz. There is little music I don't like and have been a fan since early childhood. My earliest musical fascinations were with big band swing (probably because of the movement of the bass and percussion) and Hank Williams Sr. (for the lyrics and melodies).

Musical History:

Replaced the last original member in The Nightcrawlers ("Little Black Egg"). Opened for Bob Seger with them. Played ahead of The Allman Brothers in Cincinnati. Met Gregg Allman, one of the good guys. The Nightcrawlers worked out of Cincinnati through AJaye Agency.

Shared the stage with guitarist Adrian Belew 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. Sweetheart worked out of Nashville through Cresent Moon Entertainment.

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, an 80's group called The Doc Brown Band. Was a founding member of Fat Cat Daddy, featuring the amazing Mr. Tim Everette, and was lastly a member of Hands Down. Am now with a band that plays once in a blue moon, Squeeze Play (see www.squeezeplay.band), a 6-piece that expands to a 9-piece with a cookin' horn section.
