Flashback over the years has entertained people for over 40 years and most of those years FlashBack was fronted by One of Victoria’s top vocalists Danny Boyd , Danny past away in 2010 and left some pretty big shoes to fill and the only one that could fill them was Yes Danny himself . After dad passed away I took over and fronted the band for another 6 years it has been a lot of fun and I have enjoyed singing with flashback very much. My father had said to me that the only way the band could continue was for me to front it and at the time I couldn’t give my father an answer, When he passed away it was all I wanted to do was to sing in the band and to keep he memory alive and I felt close to him for doing that.
In the 90s I had the privilege of playing side by side with him as flashbacks bass guitarist and it was a great time we had and I will cherish those years for the rest of my life and I have my father to thank for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the band
I would like to announce that it is time for me to move on and FlashBack will be finishing up on the 4th November 2016 at the dandenong Workers Club, Myself and Morrie Mathews would like to invite you all to pay tribute to one of Victoria's top Entertainers Danny Boyd and to farewell over 40 years of one of Victoria's top versatile rock & Roll Bands FLASHBACK.
To everyone that has supported flashback all these years I thank you and I also would like to thank all the musicians that have played in flashback over those 40 years so if you would like to be a part of the last show with FlashBack don’t miss out and book your seats on 0397925064 so come along and be a part of a tribute to DANNY BOYD & FLASHBACK.
In all the years i have been Dj ing some of the most memorable times were working with Danny on stage .I still play a lot of his music at my gigs ,We were great friends & i know he was proud of Michael and his contribution to the band Flashback.Flashback's music will live on for many years to come
Thank you Flash for the kind words and pictures you placed on here, I hope to see you on the 4th if your not playing.
And yes your right a lot of great time were on stage with him. Dad and I use to have 30ft guitar leads back in the 90s and we would always venture out onto the dance floor having a ball ,If only we had wireless back then .
Danny Boyd was the only singer that sang Billy Thorpe,s version of over the rainbow as good as Billy. We often listen to the CD Danny gave me some years ago at the Jukebox rockers. We danced ,oh how we danced to Flashback. Good luck with what you decide to do in the future Micheal and I know you will ROCK IT for Danny and Flashback on the 4th.
Thank you Ray , His version of Over The Rainbow was great dad loved the song, I always get asked to sing it and I do it with pleasure in memory of dad.
As for my future in music I will be fronting a band called I.C.Rock they are a great band and top bunch of guys , Its sort of like a new beginning for me to venture out from FlashBack and to gain my own identity. I owe it all to me father , He shared his passion in music with me and gave me a start in FlashBack , But FlashBack was Danny Boyd and its time to hang up the old sign.
I haven't got Facebook but you can see the gig guide on icrock.com.au the website has not been updated with myself but you can check out when and where we are playing.
IC Rock has also got 2 of dads longest running band members in it , Leon on keyboards and Alan on bass , Alan played in flashback for over 25 years and leon played for around 17 years I think , Dad will always be apart of what ever im doing music wise.
Hi Michael, we loved having Flashback playing at Peninsula Rock with your dad and we look forward to the 6 th August with Flasback playing for us and November the 5 th with I.C Rock. Regards Jill, Terry and Wendy ( Peninsula Rock).
Thank you Jill , Terry and Wendy it is always a pleasure to play down at peninsula rock everyone loves it, I am also looking forward to playing my first night under IC.ROCK for you guys.
And my big bro Morrie thank you for sharing the photos , dad would be proud of what you have achieved in music ,you have come along way bro.
Love all the pictures bro thank you for sharing them im sure everyone would be stoked to see them and your upload of Over The Rainbow you dedicated to him , As dad would say ( Good Sh...t ) I'm sure everyone's heard him say that from time to time
What a voice dad had hey, Ill tell you something funny that a lot wouldn't no , back in those days dad done a lot of songs he hadn't performed before and tony was a walking knowledge of music and he use to whisper the words to dad while on stage lol
