FLAME: Spreading Hope and Inspiration Through Their Music
To the ear, Flame sounds like any other great rock band. With their powerful vocals, smooth harmonies and a rich array of instruments, the nine-person cover band from Gloversville, NY, seems like nothing but a talented group of musicians. But one thing does set them apart: each member happens to have a disability ... and it doesn’t slow them down a bit.
Flame has a busy schedule and performs more than 70 times per year, touring the country and beyond in a custom bus. Flame gives concerts at national and statewide conventions, corporate conferences, civic events, schools, dances and private parties. And they can perform for you, too! Their repertoire includes more than 100 classic rock, pop, country and blues songs from the past 50 years, as well as some original tracks. In 13 years of work, they have produced five albums and a single.
Flame has been featured on several television shows, including Good Morning America and in various publications such as People magazine. They have performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio; New York’s Apollo Theater; Harvard Law School; the Parthenon in Athens, Greece; and the 2009 Special Olympics. Lead singer Michelle King even sang at the funeral of Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics.
