PRESENTED BY ZACHARY JOHNSON
MICROPHONES BY RODE
The Flyers is a power trio based in South Florida playing hot guitar music, originals and classic hits.
The Flyers feature Patrick Farinas (guitar, keys, B3 organ, drums and lead vocals), Jordan Richards (bass, guitar, drums and vocals) and Joe Beard (drums, guitar, bass and vocals).
Patrick is a well-established rock/blues/funk/original guitar player that started playing professionally in clubs at the age of 13. Considered a child prodigy, he was as dextrous on the guitar as he was on drums, bass, keyboard and harmonica. Today, Patrick adds his own fire and style into anything he plays, and has opened for such greats as Pinetop Perkins, Bob Dylan, Sugar Ray and The Wallflowers etc.
Patrick is accompanied by his protege, 20-year-old Jordan Richards, who has been playing with The Flyers since his early teens. On top of studying with Patrick since age 11, he spent three summers taking classes at the University of Miami's Frost School of Music, interacting and learning from jazz and blues legends such as Ira Sullivan and Duffy Jackson. Audiences are astounded to see this young man perform with such versatility and conviction, much like Joe Beard who also plays guitar, bass and sings. Joe is a recording engineer and professional musician in Fort Lauderdale who has been with the The Flyers full time since 2008.
