Free parking available for the showcase competition in the adjacent lots to the North of Coors Amphitheatre. Look for the Free Parking signs.

Flyboxx Call It Quits

Matt Gulley from Flyboxx made the announcement this week and the members of their group are parting ways, “It is with mixed emotions that I sit down to deliver this news to all of you on our mailing list. It has been a fun-filled ride with the members of this band, however at this time we have decided to hang up the Flyboxx moniker.”
Last Friday night the group got together and amicably agreed that now was the time to go our separate ways. Matt didn’t go into detail, but their discussion surrounded a possible replacement of a member, which at this point, is no longer an option. “For those of you who have been with us for the whole four years, we have replaced members in the past, but at this point it would be replacing the person not the instrument. So, from that idea and the standpoint that the four of us are friends and brothers before we’re band members, we are going our own ways.”
Each member plans to continue making music and appear back on the scene at some point. “Perhaps somewhere down the road we’ll get back together and try it again, but there are too many ‘what ifs’ to speculate at that right now.”
