Band History

Take-off: 1980
Formed in 1980, the original Night Flight came about from a studio session with Lead singer/Guitarist Gary Sciarrillo and Keyboard/Guitarist, Richard Winkis. Meeting for the first time, it didn't take long to add Dave Moretti - Vocal, Guitar & Mandolin, John Toto, Bass & Vocals, and Drummer Tim Wheeler to the mix. After 10 years of having much success playing local pubs & private parties around the area, it was time to say good-bye (or grow up, whichever you prefer)

Re-launch: 2012
After a request to re-form the band to open a new bar in the same area the original Night Flight played 30+ years ago, stupidity took hold. Gary Sciarrillo calls original band mate Dave Moretti, playing in the band Riverside known for their 3 part harmony, to see if there was any interest to play as a duo. Dave immediately mentions that his drummer from Riverside, Gary Rice, would be a great addition to this project. Once these members finally met, they quickly realized that there was chemistry with the three vocals. After months of intense harmony practice, it was clear that a full band was what was needed to complete this project. So after 14 months, Night Flight was going to re-form as a full band again, but with vocal harmonies as the focus.

Building the Band
After a few hits and misses, original Night Flight bass player, (currently with the band Fearless), stops by to listen to a rehearsal. As luck would have it, John came along just at the right time. The bass is secured and, not to mention, an unexpected 4th vocal harmony.

After searching far and wide, Gary Rice networks with, what turns out to be, the final two members of Night Flight: Final Approach. Brendon D’Arcy, arguably the finest musician in the band, on Keyboards & Percussion.

Night Flight is Back, performing shows & bar dates with two band formats to choose from:

Night Flight: Final Approach
This includes all six members of the band. With rich 4/5 part harmonies to fill out this ensemble, you will surely enjoy the full band experience.

Night Flight: Unplugged
Members Gary Sciarrillo, Dave Moretti & Gary Rice perform the same great Night Flight music in an acoustic format.

If you haven’t heard Night Flight: Final Approach or Night Flight Unplugged yet, it's time you did!
