The Story...so far...

The Flying Silos formed in 2006 and have been playing venues and events across the state of Iowa since. While the songs and talent lineup have changed over the years, the atmosphere at a Silo show hasn't! Playing everything from Adele to Zeppelin, sometimes putting our own flavor on crowd favorites, we'll take you on a musical journey and back! Have a request? Just ask and you might see us try something new for the first time!

Welcome to Silo Nation, we'll see you at the show!

THE FLYING SILOS:

HEATHER MACLENNAN 

// vocals

 

Vocal range that takes the audience from A to Z - from Adele to Zeppelin.  Heather can shatter glass.

JT ALLEN  

// vocals & trumpet

 

From lead to harmony, he can sing it all!  His trumpet adds that extra layer to really fill out a song!

MIKE BUBAN

// guitar, strings, vocals

Lead guitar and master of pretty much all things strings. Don't let the  guitars on stage fool you, Mike is calm and mild mannered...until the music starts! Did we mention he sings?

AARON MARTIN

// bass & live sound

 

Bassist extraordinaire. Hours behind the upright bass didn't prepare him to rock with these cats! Aaron also assists with mixing!

DEAN SCHMITZ

// drums & vocals

 

Drummer extraordinaire: able to improvise a  Bonham-solo or comp the smoothest groove on command.

SCOTT NOREM

// guitar & branding

 

Guitarist and effects aficionado with a knack for saying the unexpected! He can also be found working in design programs updating the band branding and merch!

FLYING SILOS ALUMNI
& SPECIAL GUESTS

BILL GRAY

// vocals & guitar

 

The original official front man and crowd greeter who is missed by not only the band, but many members of Silo Nation!  Bill could get the whole place out of their seats and dancing.

Former bassist turned band manager, Bill is helping keep us all on the same page!

// bass & vocals

 

Blake joins the Silos from time to time with his bass in hand if Aaron isn't available. He also brings his singing chops along!
