Flight 1 formed in 2016 as a new electric project from Blacksburg Virginia’s power acoustic duo, John and Julie (John Fogle & Julie Dameron), adding two members of longtime New River Valley band, Gary & The Brewers, Jason Tice on drums and Chris Rader on bass, also from local band, Ray Jay Johnson. Fogle brings scorching, uplifting guitar solos with a progressive thoughtfulness seldom seen in the rock world these days, while Julie Dameron’s lyrical writing and solid guitar work moves the listener who enjoys depth in their art. With the creative rhythm section of Rader and Tice, each new listener feels the music familiar, yet somehow fresh with each performance. Beyond the tight structure of the original material, the improvisational jams bring out the best of Fogle and Dameron’s long-time guitar partnership with beautiful, complex interplay of melody and lead work, leading to common 10 minute interludes you hope will never end. Fogle has been entertaining the Blacksburg area with his extraordinary guitar talent since the 1980’s and the band is comprised of musical veterans, enjoying the discovery of power in this fresh new band, finally ready for the next step. A project in constant motion, this group is growing together, writing new material weekly, to fill out what will be a busy year sharing passionate, exciting music with a purpose! Rock On!
