The FlashBack began playing local Maine nightspots in 1996. The group started out doing cover tunes that had solid dance beats and melodic harmonies. After four years on the road touring, the band has begun to write and perform some original material. Our goal is to release an album within a year. Most likely, it will contain a couple of remakes that we believe can get some air play. Using this strategy we hope that our originals might get some air play.
FlashBack has played a wide array of venues from Jimmy V's in Bangor, to U. Maine's Bumstock in 1998. The Band has seen a few player changes over the years. The current line up consist of John (lead vocal and guitar), Mike(vocal and bass guitar), Mark (vocal and keys),and Tom (vocal and drums). All four members of the current group are original members of FlashBack.
FlashBack's influences range from The Beatles, to Kiss, to Stevie Ray Vaughn. Our keyboard player (Mark), refers to the group as the soup to nuts band. Diversity has been a key to our success. So no matter whether you like rock and roll, R & B, or some metal music we play a little of each style.
FlashBack will be appearing at Bruno's Pub in Belfast on April 28th. The show begins at 9:30 p.m. til 1:00 a.m. We hope to see you there!
