Flying Train Wreck is a classic rock band covering music from the 1960s into the 2000s.
Careening through the decades, skittering on a knife edge between near competence and utter disaster is where Flying Train Wreck lives. Guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, two … count ’em TWO fantastic lead vocalists!! … you can’t get much more rock than that … believe you me!

Simply put, Baibi SINGS! And does so with great skill, confidence, and heart! This Baibi is a magical creature who bends time and space to her will. They say she learned her chops working with the Sirens of the eastern Mediterranean about the time Odysseus was cruising through. Such is her impact on mere mortals, that all is forgotten when they hear her sing. It’s ok, they get better and go on to live lives worthy of witnessing Baibi’s talent. At least that’s what her agent says. Come to a show, find out for yourself!
Displaying excellent vocal and motor skills along with a dizzying intellect and nearly perfect timing Loren appears to be the only member of the band with a lick of sense (excepting Baibi, of course … she has super powers!) … proving he’s not just another pretty face. Loren has an amazing vocal range; he can handle the soft, sensitive ballads and the out and out rock screamers. You gotta hear him! A friend of Matt’s from his French Foreign Legion days — Loren was a cook specializing in crepes and escargot. We’re hoping not at the same time.
Matt is a drummer, who would like to be a vocalist. Attend any rehearsal with the band and you’ll hear Matt singing his heart out! It’s … very nice. Other than a stint, with Loren, in the Foreign Legion, Matts origins are difficult to pin down. We do know he left the Legion after a nasty reaction to a breakfast called “Snails in a Blanket”.
Rick has been a fixture on bass in the Twin Cities music scene for over 30 years, and we’re happy to have him on our team. Early in his life he tried his hand at several jobs just off the beaten path, specifically, Galactic Travel Agent, Dream Alchemist, and Professional Reindeer Walker. Eventually, the call of the music — not to mention a suggestion from his last corporate job — led him to where he is today. Yay!
Scot is a bit of a mystery, some say he was a train pusher (look it up, it’s a real job!). Others say he was a Pez dispenser repairman until he found a job as a part-time musician — which payed MUCH better! He likes to think of himself as a raconteur, regaling people with his delightful tales and witticisms (his wife will tell you to ignore him or you’ll get more of the same).
This is Ian. He's in charge of the way Flying Train Wreck sounds live. Sure, he LOOKS intense but he's actually very, very high strung. Originally trained as an Elf Shoe Cobbler, Ian traveled the Emerald Isle ... but could find no Elves for which to cobble. After one too many meals consisting of potatoes he moved on to a somewhat less fantastical occupation.
John was once a promising young Samurai. Unfortunately, there was little call for his skills in the midwest part of the United States so he became a dog sled musher. Flying Train Wreck found him and set him up to leave for greener pastures whenever some pretty, new band beckoned! Not that we're bitter! We love him anyway!
