RUSSELL WATTS - VOCALS

Born in Statesville, NC, Russell grew up in the late Sixties and was constantly listening to that great era's Soul, Blues and Gospel music, as well as absorbing the soundtracks from the popular movie musicals. Russell can often be found wherever good music and vocals are strong, and his soulful presence is often requested at Jazz, Pop and R&B gigs everywhere. He is actively involved in singing in church with three different groups, one of which had a brief stint at the Apollo Theater in New York. Russ brings vocal precision and soul to each and every song!
ROB BUTTOMER - DRUMS & BAND LEADER

Dynamic, versatile, powerful, entertaining and in the pocket are some of the ways Rob's drumming has been described. Residing in Quincy, MA since birth,  Rob studied with jazz master Dick DiCenso who schooled him in the rudiments, along with Rob's time marching with the Boston Crusaders have led to his blazing fast response and drive. Rob has played and toured the country with many bands including Mother Funk, Incus and Hyper Joe - opening for great recording artists such as Average White Band,  Kool & The Gang, The Temptations, The Black Crowes and Blues Traveler.
GREG TRAGELLIS - KEYBOARDS & VOCALS

Born and raised in Quincy, MA, Greg started playing the piano when he was eight years old, adding guitar at the age of ten. He attended Berklee College of Music to further his piano studies and went on to study drums with deceased legend, Dick Dicenso. Skilled in many aspects of performance arts including improv theatre, Greg closely emulates the style and vocal characteristics of many modern pop singers, and brings a unique approach to four-part harmony arranging for Super Fly's vocalists. As a multi-instrumentalist, Greg has played bass for Boston area bands Tik Tok, For Lovers, Muggers & Thieves, and drums Porque, I Said So and Four Point Restraints. Prior to becoming a member of Super Fly, Greg was the long-time lead vocalist and keyboard player for the local cover band, The Coalition and he continues to teach piano and guitar.
MICHAEL ANGELO - BASS

Michael draws on a wealth of experience in music of various cultures, creating interesting textures and 'power with nuance' to lend to any style. Largely self-taught, Michael was performing in Pop and Ethnic music ensembles at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York, and recorded with John McLaughlin, Carlos Santana and Narada Michael Walden when he was only seventeen. Since then Michael has taken private instruction with Jazz improv masters Lionel Chamberland, Tommy Campbell and Charlie Banacos. Michael is also skilled in recording and mastering, working with Bob Ludwig and Al DiMeola as the 'ears' for their project. His studio consultancy designed world-class recording facilities for George Benson, Harry Belafonte and SpyroGyra before coming to Boston to play on and produce several studio projects for Brazilian, Celtic, Indian, Pop and Jazz artists.
