FLYER just might be the most rock-solid cover band in Atlanta. 97.1 The River calls us "Atlanta's premier classic hits cover band." We bring the music you grew up on; from the power of the Stones and the soul of Van Morrison to the Southern anthems of Lynyrd Skynyrd.


Take a couple of pilots who can wail on guitar, add a guy who builds fighter jets and pounds the drums and throw in a psychologist on keyboards and a software exec. on bass, and you've got one healthy, high-flying rock band.

Flyer, a quintet of aviation-oriented musicians, covers the gamut of rock and blues. We play the vintage tunes of Eric Clapton, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and The Eagles; the Southern rock of Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top and The Allman Brothers; the working-class songs of STYX and John Mellencamp; the smooth sounds of Journey and Elton John; and the classic hits from The Temptations and Chuck Berry.

"The music we do sparks a lot of memories and puts everybody in a good mood," said Lex Lauletta of Woodstock. The captain with Delta Air Lines plays rhythm guitar and harmonica. "We play '70s and 80's classic rock and some R&B, all of which will keep you dancing ."

The other "flyboys" making up the band are Mark Bradley of Roswell, also a Delta captain who plays guitar; Neil Johnson of Marietta, senior manager of product control for the F/A-22, the new fighter jet being built at Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Co., on drums; Steve Kincaid of Roswell, a psychologist and vice president of consulting for Right Management Consultants who "flies a lot," on keyboards; and Richard Banks of East Cobb, an executive with SmartTrust, a Swedish company that makes software for the mobile-phone industry, on bass.

"The unique talents each member brings to the band blend perfectly to create a powerful sound", says Lauletta.
