Though individual influences range from Santana to Pat Metheny, Keith Jarrett to The Who, Charlie Parker to Steve Gadd, the band is able to pull it all together in a seamless fashion, forming their own style of musical expression.
An exciting aspect of Flutopia is that they never play their songs the same way twice. Even the band members don't always know how a tune will turn out each time they play it. On stage, the band gets a feel for the song as they play it and then goes from there. One night Flutopia will rock out on their tune "Savra" and the next show it will have a more mellow, dreamy sound. The next time it'll be different again (we'll let you know how it turns out).
With all the spontenaety, the one constant is the non stop energy. Even as the band moves from fericious solos and high energy grooves to mellow and pensive sounds, one always feels the intensity and feeling of each band member, and of the group as a whole.
So what does Flutopia sound like? The best way to get a feel for the band is check out a live show. Until then, check out a copy of the CD. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the tunes.
