Green Flower Street
Countermoon
Hey Nineteen

New Frontier
Beast of Burden
You Can’t Catch Me

The Nightflyers band consists of young talents like guitarist Connor Kennedy, 23, of Woodstock; drummer Lee Falco, 22, and keyboard player Will Bryant, 25, of Marlboro; bass player Brandon Morrison of Rosendale, 28; and multi-instrumentalist Zach Djanikian, 32, of Woodstock. The Poughkeepsie Journal says this was their first gig in front of a crowd and Fagen was very pleased with the stand-up ovation.
