In the mid '60s, The Daily Flash found a way to fuse folk, rock, blues, bluegrass and jazz. That process lives on in this stunning line up. The new edition of The Daily Flash has earned a reputation as a dynamic vocal band of consummate instrumentalists. The band features ASCAP composers and does original tunes, but their favorite trick is interpretation. They breathe life into an eclectic repertoire of folk, rock, Celtic and Delta swamp fusion. The Daily Flash brings the spirit of the sixties into the 21st century and delivers to stages all around the Northwest.
Steve Lalor remains the Northwest's quintessential acoustic folk performer. A veteran of the 60's west coast folk scene (The Driftwood Singers) and founding member of The Daily Flash, Steve spent 11 years in the L.A. studio scene under contract with London, Universal, MGM, Psycho and Rhino recording companies. His crystal voice and syncopated 6 and 12 string finger picking have been described by Bumbershoot as, "Musicianship that CRACKLES with experience."
Barry Curtis, a member of the Kingsmen since 1963, has shared stages with everyone from Chuck Berry to The Zombies. As an electric guitarist, he embodies a wide stylistic range including rural American blues, rock, r&b, country and folk. As a singer, he combines these influences with his formal training in choral music and other forms of harmonic group singing.
Don Wilhelm has been active in the Seattle scene since 1966. He has performed with founding members Roger Fisher and Steve Fossen in White Heart and Heart with founding members Roger Fisher and Steve Fossen, ShyAnne, and with Moby Grape's Don Stevenson in Washington James. His unique bass style contributes greatly to The Flash's melodic and rhythmic character. His superb voice soars into alto territory, providing the band with the greatest possible vocal range.
Steve Peterson,also a Kingsmen since 1988, is one of the Northwest's finest drummers. Steve has the ability to find the groove in any form of music. His precision and dynamic range gives The Flash its multi‑hued percussive style. His singing, Celtic whistle and mandolin work are compelling and contribute to the group's amazing diversity.
Craig Bystromhas been sound engineering for the Kingsmen since 1982. Over the years, he has perfected the art of taking all of the individual instruments and voices in a band to create a dynamic group sound in any situation. He brings his wealth of talent and experience to The Flash and enables the band to sound its best at all times.
The Daily Flash continues to be a pioneer of Seattle music and a wonderful, explorative musical performance experience.
