Were there a conjurer’s secret for the heady brew known as the Flying Other Brothers, it might read something like this.

Mix equal parts singer-songwriter gone electric, dauntless improvisation, and a love for walking the edge with a whimsical smile. Steep in the grand tradition of vintage San Francisco sounds and sensibility. Pepper liberally with original tunes, classic covers, boundless energy, and a healthy dose of humor. Season with serious fun and bake until done.

Featuring stellar lead and pedal steel guitarist Barry Sless (Phil Lesh & Friends), keyboardist Pete Sears (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Starship), former Saturday Night Live bandleader and guitarist G.E. Smith (Bob Dylan, Hall & Oates), and drummer Jimmy Sanchez (Boz Scaggs, Dr. John), the octet is rounded out by Roger McNamee on rhythm guitar, Ann McNamee on percussion, Bill Bennett on bass, Tony Bove on harmonica, and Bert Keely on guitar, all five of whom lend vocals and original tunes to the mix.
