The Flying Toasters
Playing Saturday. “A Non-Stop Party Band Experience”
Self-described as a party band, The Flying Toasters… formed in late 2003 by Jason Hayes and his father Bill Hayes, began playing shows in March 2004. Bill has since retired and moved to Florida, but the group continues on and plays about 100 to 150 shows per year.
“We’re very blessed to be able to perform in a variety of different environments. There’s something special about playing outside,” said Jason Hayes, who performs as a singer, guitar player and occasional drum player for the band.
Band members said the group likes to play a mix of classic hits while inserting random songs into the playlist, saying it brings a life to their show that draws in old fans and new ones, too.
“The nice thing about being off-the-cuff, a set list might not be the best choice because you don’t know who will be there,” said Hayes. “The plan is to not have a plan.”
Singer Holly Streit said she met Hayes through the music pastor at their church. And because she grew up in a musical family, she has even welcomed her sister Kelly Frazer into performing with The Flying Toasters.
The band said there’s no shortage of camaraderie and friendship, and that’s what makes them a cohesive unit.
