When did the band get together, and how?
We come form another world many eons ago. Born from the molten ashes of The Rock Gods. They bestowed the Hammer of the Gods for us to spread the gospel of big rock n roll. Proudly we yield it and plant it down hard against all rock deniers. We are the real deal true rock crusaders of the new order.
How would you describe your music to someone?
A blend of “From Dusk Till Dawn and “El Mariachi”
Who are some of the bands that influence your music?
Only the classics will appease the sacrifice to the Rock Gods. The Beatles, The Stones, Van Halen, Judas Priest, G N R, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, Pantera, Cheap Trick, INXS and the list goes on and on…
What is your most memorable gig so far?
The Rock Gods have been splendid to us. We’ve had the honor to play many a stage with many a prestigious act. But the one show that really stands out for the moment is the show we recently did with Saving Abel. The house was packed at Speaking Rock, the sound system and stage was superb and it inspired us to play on a different dimension. Saving Abel were a great bunch of guys. Great Show it was.
Are you currently signed to any kind of label or management?
We are currently entertaining a few alliances. However, no formal relationship has yet developed. We are independent for the moment.
What other bands have your members been/are in?
None worth mentioning and we are solely dedicated to Cantina Flys. What I can say is that each member of this band are lovable rogue, vagabonds that somehow found our musical paths to each other and were destined to play in the Cantina Flys.
What other local bands would you recommend people check out?
Suicide Romance and Cowboys From Hell Paso.
