The Flying AU79’s

What/who are your musical influences?

The Flying Au79’s is a collection for musicians from near and far and varying in ages, so our musical influences is very broad. Between us we enjoy most genres of music from virtuoso guitarists, Dirty Loops, 90’s Rock bands, 50 to 70’s rock, jazz musicians such as Gorgeous George Benson to Japanese bands, Ska to Bob Marley and plenty of others.

Favourite line from a song?

Best of You by Foo Fighters
“Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you”
There is only one way to sing that line and it’s flat out!

Which instrument does each band member play?

Leon – Plays guitar and sings
Josiah – Plays bass in the band
Phillip – Play keyboards
Drew – Plays Drums

Do you write your own songs?

No, we are a covers band. I know I should, but I find writing originals a lot of hard work and takes a lot of time! One day.

If you could play any gig or venue, where would that be?

Can I choose 2?

The first Woodstock 1969 and Wembley Stadium full stop! Imagine playing at Woodstock and to a full house as Queen did in 1986! It would have been a blast just to share the stage with those legends. Let the Music Play.
