ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
About The Flamin’ Oh’s:
In 1977, the band Flamingo was formed by Robert Wilkinson (guitars, vocals) and Johnny Rey (guitars), Jody Ray (bass guitar), Bob Meide (percussion) and Joseph Behrend (keyboards and vocals). The release of “Flamingo” in 1978, recorded at Tracks on Fifth, included the songs “Smart Girl,” “We Do What We Like,” “One More Night” and one of the band’s most popular
and enduring songs, “I Remember Romance.”

Over the next 40 years, The Flamin’ Oh’s (as they were renamed soon after their first release) would continue to evolve, perform, and record – with Wilkinson as the enduring frontman. They were a pioneer in the early 1980s’ developing music video industry and toured nationally and internationally throughout the 1980s. In 1986, after the success of numerous albums and the rigors of a national touring schedule, Behrend chose to leave the band. He asked Bob Burns to take his role on keyboards. Soon after his departure, Behrend died in a much-publicized criminal tragedy that remains unsolved to this
date. In 1988, the Oh’s members began to follow various paths to other musical endeavors, marriage, families and much more. It would be more than 10 years before any version of Flamingo / Flamin’ Oh’s / The Oh’s would re-emerge.
With the release of “Long Live the King” in 2005, the band firmly reestablished itself in the local music scene. Sean Sauder joined the band after Meide’s death in 2010, with Jenny Case (bass) and Terry Isachsen (guitars) joining soonafter. That lineup recorded and released “Here and Now” in 2015 and remains together to this day.

The current lineup of the Flamin’ Oh’s recorded “Strange Times,” which follows their 2015 release of “Here and Now.” The Flamin’ Oh’s have remained a fixture of the live music scene for decades, with Wilkinson as a prolific songwriter and live shows hailed for their enduring audience appeal, deep rock and roll roots, and unwavering energy.
