Soaring out of Commander Cody & The Lost Planet Airmen. Check out their stunning mini-bios:

Bill Kirchen: Grammy nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter Bill Kirchen celebrates Americas musical traditions of rock n roll, Western swing and California honky-tonk. Hes been called a Titan of the Telecaster by Guitar Player Magazine, an American treasure and one of our best by Rolling Stone Magazine. Kirchen co-founded the original Americana band, Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen. His telecaster licks drove their version of Hot Rod Lincoln into the Top Ten of 1972. He has recorded and/or played guitar with a who's who of roots music, among them Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Linda Rondstadt, Dan Hicks, Nick Lowe and more.
Andy Stein:  The NY Times has called 2-time Grammy winner Andy Stein a musician with a checkered past. Andy joined Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen when Bill Kirchen spotted him in Ann Arbor in 1968 jamming at a coffee house! 2 decades later Andy ended up on A Prairie Home Companion for 22 years playing violin and saxophone in the Guys All Star Shoe Band on the weekly nationwide broadcasts. After CC & the LPA disbanded in 76 he moved to LA, working with Bob Dylan. He also pursued his classical carrier as violinist soloing with numerous orchestras across the US; and composing and arranging for Sir Paul McCartney, Joshua Bell, Andre Watts, and Garrison Keillor (with whom he wrote an opera.)
Bobby Black: Master steel guitarist Bobby Black has played and recorded with an astonishing number of the stars of country music, from his pal George Jones very first recordings in 1953, to Ray Price, Lefty Frizzell, Webb Pierce, Asleep At The Wheel, Doug Sahm, and many more. Bobby has appeared on more than 130 albums, with artists from Asleep at the Wheel, New Riders of the Purple Sage, and Elvin Bishop to Tom Waits. He was inducted into the Western Swing Hall of Fame in 1997, and the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in 2004.
John Tichy: Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is a Founding Father of the Lost Planet Airmen. With a long list of publications and research for NASA, he also continues to gig steadily, presumably with the research objective of rocking your ass off. Tichy is listed in the Rolling Stone Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll (1998) for his work as singer, songwriter and guitarist.
Buffalo Bruce Barlow: bass player with Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, plays blues, rock n roll, country & Western, and a whole lot of boogie-woogie. Hes played with Chicago bluesmen Magic Sam, Elvin Bishop, James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Albert Collins, John Lee Hooker plus Roger McGuinn and Hoyt Axton.
