Our first music video, filmed and produced by Shanon Rice and Matthew O'Pry of SNM Films. We hope you enjoy it!
 
Nightflyer is one bluegrass band you don't want to miss -- mostly contemporary with strong traditional bluegrass roots, a little gospel and just a touch of the blues thrown in, and nothing but fun to watch.

There are plenty of
videos, photos and music on this site, facebook and YouTube of this Southwest Ohio band. I could go on, but why don't you be the judge!

"Bluegrass Today" Review 

How did we forget to post to post this review from John Curtis Goad of "Bluegrass Today?" Below are the highlights:

"Ohio-based band Nightflyer has named their second album Rail River & Road – a fitting name that neatly sums up the themes of the majority of the thirteen songs within. ...The Paula Breedlove/Brad Davis co-write Life is a Train uses a one-way track as a metaphor for life, while Joe Richardson’s Train Whistle Blowing finds the singer leaving a woman who didn’t love him like she should have. Both… Read more

Happy to share our first review for "Rail River & Road!" 

We're very excited to share our first review for "Rail River & Road!" Thank you to Brenda Hough and the California Bluegrass Association!

Here it is...
"Nightflyer's second album again shows a cohesive, polished band with fine and varied vocals, crisp instrumentation and an ability to choose songs with substance and meaning. While the songs all relate to traveling, trains, and loving and leaving, the rhythms vary and the band's multiple lead singers give the songs different flavors. Band members are Tim… Read more

"Old River" Single Is Out! 

We debuted the new single, "Old River," from Nightlfyer's upcoming CD "Rail River & Road" on WOBO 88.7 FM last night. Written by Hazel Dickens, the song highlights the vocal talents of banjoist Ronnie Stewart and guitarist Richard Propps. Although Richard most often takes the lead, on this track he contributes his soaring tenor over Ronnie's hair-raising vocals. And of course all of the other guys are awesome on it! We expect to get the full “Rail River & Road” CD out by late August. Until then, you can… Read more

Bean Blossom and then on to North Dakota! 

Playing the Father of Bluegrass's Festival!  
Nightflyer is excited and honored to be playing Bean Blossom this year -- the oldest, continuously running bluegrass festival in the world! It's a full 10-days and is already under way! 
  And a Little Later in the Week -- North Dakota, Here Comes Nightflyer!  Last year the guys traveled to the Lakes Bluegrass Festival and had a such a great time. Apparently they made an impression and several people went back home to North Dakota and made sure they brought… Read more

Promoter Reviews...

________________________________________________

"I hired Nightflyer for our Lakes Bluegrass Festival without having heard or seen them in person, but they were such delightful people and easy to deal with that I decided to take a chance on them. To say they exceeded my expectations is an understatement. They are marvelous musicians, great entertainers, and just good people.

Many of our audience commented that they were favorites among many other well-known national bands. I will definitely have them back when I can."

Tim Roggenkamp, Entertainment Director
The Lakes Bluegrass Festival.

"I heard great things about the band Nightflyer for years. I even had a CD but never heard them live. I found out that they were playing at the Blue Ribbon Foxhunters Lodge so we went over to hear them and they absolutely killed it.  A short time later they were booked at Rudy
Fest and they did not disappoint. Nightflyer is a killer band, good musicians, tight vocals and best of all, a great bunch of boys."

Rudy Burchett, Rudy Fest

"When you think of the qualities it takes for a band to reach star status it is easy to see why Nightflyer is moving to the forefront of the bluegrass world. Having five superbly talented musicians, there is nothing Nightflyer can’t play. Vocally, their harmonies are dead on and in a group that has four lead singers it is Richard Propps who reaches notes that are beyond most mortals with his powerful soaring vocals. From traditional and progressive bluegrass, to gospel and blues, the group can play any style. For promoters, Nightflyer is a must have for your event and for bluegrass lovers, Nightflyer is a must see for you.”
