The Flying Salvias play Ameri-kinda music, as their repertoire of original and eclectic cover tunes repeatedly strays over the Americana border, blending country, rock, pop, blues, beatnik jazz, folk, old hippie, and even tango and rhumba. Songwriters Kathleen and Henry Salvia founded the band in 2013, producing 2 CDs with a third in progress.
This will be a wide-ranging show with romance, humor, sadness, joy, and a lot of fun. With Kathleen on vocals and Henry on piano, they have recruited a stellar line-up with experience to match The Flying Salvias’ material: David Phillips on pedal steel, David Golia on bass, Philbillie on guitar, percussionist John Pearson and drummer Ken Owen.
Over the years, Houston Jones, Oakland Interfaith Gospel Choir, Emmylou Harris, Big Lou's Dance Party, Peter Rowan, Joe Cocker, Barbara Morrison, Tom Waits, Denny Laine, and Metallica have all had the pleasure of working with one or more of The Flying Salvias.
