The South Florida music scene has more to offer than just rap, salsa and Mr. 305. Influenced by surprisingly different styles of rock music, the teenage rock band "Wyld Fly" brings true energetic Rock n' Roll to center stage.
Band members and guitarists Alex Di Leo and Austin Higney started the band at age 11 and 12 in 2007. Armed with Mexican made Strats and Line 6 amps, Austin and Alex began the routine of writing original material influenced by rock of the late seventies. Shortly thereafter they assembled a few friends to fill in on bass and drums. They named the band "One on Us." Austin and Alex's writing skills were validated after winning their first talent contest at their school. They would soon become accustomed to winning talent contests in the years to come.
Band members came and went as the name was changed to "The Vigilantes, " and finally the group became "Wyld Fly" in October of 2012.
The result is defined as a hard hitting rock band with witty transitions and solid melodic choruses. Years of song writing has allowed them yo fine-tune their sound into a tour de force. Alex Di Leo mesmerizes listeners with soft ballad-like vocals and smooth silk-like guitar strumming. Then singer-percussionist Brian Reina's thunderous down beat and simultaneous chords remind us that this is a hard rock band after all, while Austin weaves between the lines with sharp riffs and melodic solos. The band manages to write and agree on songs despite their different musical tastes.
In February 2013 the band won the grand prize 1st place winning slot in the Battle of the Bands at Revolution Club in Fort Lauderdale. Twenty seven bands competed for the coveted position over the course of several days. In the end Wyld Fly took the prize by providing a tight high energy show that could not be topped.
