ABOUT GREEN FLAMINGOS
Green Flamingos’ sound was forged from the collective, yet varied influences, of Jesse Friesen and “Bobby J” Edwards. They sometimes refer to their style as "acoustified rock and pseudo-electrified folk," yet even that doesn’t cover all the bases.
Green Flamingos have performed at prestigious events like the Symphony in the Flint Hills and the Orpheum Theater’s Christmas Express. Twice they played on the main stages of the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield. One year, they were joined on-stage by Italian guitar master, Beppe Gambetta, and two former members of the famed New Grass Revival; John Cowan, currently of the Doobie Brothers, and Pat Flynn. Along with live performances, Green Flamingos were honored to be a part of the award-winning “Home on the Range” movie, appearing in the film and performing on the soundtrack.
Green Flamingos pulls from all sorts of genres and styles; the group shows its ability to perform an eclectic mix of music. They cover a wide range of styles, but still maintain their signature Flamingo’s sound.
