Henry County Concert Series

Flynnville Train – August 20th

Toby Keith: “When I saw them live, they were more than I could have expected and I signed them on the spot.” Such was his description of Flynnville Train, who signed to his management team as well as his Show Dog label. The deal resulted in two charted singles on the Billboard chart and a number 22 spot on the Heatseeker Billboard Charts.

Having amicably parted ways with Show Dog, the band continues to electrify audiences with their live stage show and is taking their music to the world. “We love performing for international audiences – they really get what we are about and the love and appreciation that comes back to us from them is amazing.”

Formed by brothers Brian and Brent Flynn, the band comprises Brian Flynn on lead vocals, Brent Flynn on lead guitar and harmony vocals (a natural blend unique to brothers.) Tommy Bales is on drums, now with the band for over thirteen years and voted Number One most up-and-coming drummer in Modern Drummer magazine in 2009 and Joseph Shreve on bass, who met the brothers through a mutual friend and whose influences are drawn from Rush and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Together, they form a band of brothers in music, with each bringing something unique to the sound that comprises Flynnville Train.

Flynnville Train is an irresistible, powerful, hard driving combination of Rock, Southern rock and country, with heart-stopping guitar riffs and nostalgic vocals as gritty as a long dirt road. From start to finish, their unique sound captivates the listener, whether live or on CD and their sound and style has no boundaries.

Labeled by their fans as “Americas’ band,” Flynnville Train’s music spans multiple genres and their electrifying live show hooks fans of all ages. They are as comfortable sharing the stage with superstars like Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, as they are with acts such as Iron Butterfly, Molly Hatchett and the Marshall Tucker Band. It is seldom that such a unique and powerful live sound can be captured in the studio from three musicians and a lead singer, but with a band as awesome and talented as this, they proved it was possible. In the studio, they record most songs “live” like the 60’s and early 70’s, hence the “real” sound that they create. The Flynn brothers, Brian and Brent, were raised by hard working parents in a Christian family of farmers and factory workers in Indiana, so can totally relate to the working class of America and the world. Their father played in a band in his spare time – Grandma played the fiddle. Both brothers inherited their natural gift of music – Brian (lead vocals) is also an accomplished drummer. His brother, Brent (who has perfect pitch), is able to play any stringed instrument but electric guitar became his prime instrument. Brent was five years old when he got his first guitar. His breath-taking guitar riffs and fills are delivered in an iconic fashion invoking the spirit of the likes of Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton and other guitar heroes. The brothers also write together. Brian pens most of the lyrics and Brent the melodies. They have written with partners such as Richard Young from the Kentucky Headhunters and recorded songs from legendary writer Craig Wiseman. The music is timeless, gets into your soul and moves your spirit. Brian and Brent Flynn state: “Now we are able to carve our own destiny, which we never could before. We have built a team of strong in-house people who believe in us and will be part of our extended family. We are all good and honest people who are prepared to work hard. Our goal is to take our music to the world and no matter where we perform; the key is that we give everyone a great time. We want to be remembered wherever we play.”
