The Black Fly Band

The Black Fly Band is a working band that has been together for 15 years. The band was started back in the mid 90s with Garry McKnight on sax and Larry Burnett on lead guitar. Derrick King (bass Guitar) was added to the band in late fall of 2004 and Jody Anderson (drums) was added in spring of 2005. We played as a four piece band for six months then Ron Finner sat in with the band on keyboard one afternoon and has been with them ever since. As a five piece band, they continue to do bookings based on excellent reviews. We do a mix of songs based on the type of crowd we are playing for and can play venues of classic country, new country, blues, rock and roll with some classic rock. Each year we do 60 plus bookings around the area playing everything from bars, large outdoor concerts, ribfests, fairs and weddings.
