We're a new organization creating engineers, scientists and pilots by merging our passion for music and aviation together and look to create Flying Musician Association (FMA) chapters across the country. We also perform at aviation and music events. Do you know of any aviators who are musicians who live in Florida? We've got some exciting opportunities ahead and could use to enlarge our talent pool. Of course we'd love Bon Jovi, but local Blue Grass dudes make for fine company!
This group is actually run by staff, not Kermit himself, but we'd be happy to pass the query up the chain. Let you know as soon as we hear back.
Kermit really couldn't think of anyone to recommend, but loves your idea and wishes you the best of luck! Definitely keep us posted on your appearances. Will you be at SUN 'n FUN?
Well... let's keep this string going- Kermit may not have anyone off the top of his head, but at the Light Sport Expo in Sebring, I asked the tent with about 200 "who here are pilots who play music?" and about 60 raised their hands... (some others with sheepish smiles, and we guess they have a piano or something at home, but didn't muster the arm raising part), so they are out there.
We're at a curious growth phase- tons of incentive and encouragement to continue, but we're "a small band, no roadies, and hardly making it to gigs in the old Chevy van". I'm hoping that you guys can help put the word out and find other aviators who would like to sing along. Just point interested folks to our group, and let's see what happens...
And YES- this year The Flying Musicians Inc. will be part of the Sun 'n Fun experience. We'll keep you posted on what we're looking to achieve there. This is a major reason I'm asking to find more flying musicians in Fl. Stay tuned and please help us get the word out- www.flyingmusicians.org THANKS!
