The Flavours formed late in 2002 and began performing in January 2003.
The main focus of the song list centers around Top 40 rock and dance music from the ‘70s and ‘80s, with a scope that reaches from the ‘60s to the present. We play plenty of standard “crowd pleasers” but also bring in alternative hit songs to keep our song list refreshing. A frequent compliment the band receives is “I love y'all's song list!”
The Flavours went fully "track free" in 2014. All the sounds you hear are made by real people playing and singing right in front of you.
There are no tracks, sequences or Autotune. Just real, live music!  

Dave Hineman, one of Buddy Magazine's “Texas Tornados of Guitar” of 2001, has been a favorite sideman for many Dallas bands, including Solinger and Tres Hombres and 80's glam act "Metal Shop." The Flavours band brings Dave to the front vocally and on guitar. 
Dave also formed the bands Dream On, Wood Shop (aka Honey Deux), and "Comes Alive!" - a tribute to Peter Frampton.
Dave loves to play Buddy Blaze guitars, you should check them out. RIP, Buddy.

Check out this poem written by Keith Aitken after a Flavours show... I am so humbled, I just had to add it to the site!

Barbara Jean comes from Florida’s Palm Beach club scene. Before co-founding The Flavours, she became known in the Mid-cities as the lead singer of Crush. Her soft vocal style might remind you of Chrissy Hynde of The Pretenders.

Keith also authored a poem for Barbara Jean - it's wonderful!

Drummer Breck Shisler was Dave's first drummer when they were in 5th grade.  According to Dave, "He is the Peter Criss to my Ace Frehley; the Keith Moon to my Townshend." Breck also plays drums with "That 70's Band" and other cool bands when he isn't a Flavour.

On Bass... Bob "Big and Tasty" Prince. Noted bass man for Quazi and the Motos, Smoochie, as well as many others, Bob's extensive experience and attention to the groove keeps the low end big and full all night long, which is how we like it!

Marco Tacca hails from Northern Italy. He studied Classical Pipe Organ (Minor in Evil) before joining various rock bands and moving to the U.S.  Marco's huge keyboard tower, thick Italian accent, lab coat and zany sense of humor fully embodies the Ultimate Keyboardist! Marco absolutely loves it when people yell, "Polo!" after hearing "Marco!"
There are few things in life as joyous as a well-meshed musical team. As the joy flows from The Flavours stage all night long, you realize - it's not only what they play, it's how they play it for you!
Come share the Joy!
