Local band goes on national tour

A local student-run band, The Fly, is scheduled to go on tour this summer. Their first show will be at Sullivan Hall in New York City, followed by performances across the country.

The band consists of two Syracuse students in the school of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University, Keith Smith and Farasha Baylock. Smith is a self-trained musician in five instruments and Baylock specializes in poetry and classical acting. The two combine to produce a combination of R & B, pop rock, and rap.

"We stand for freedom and expression and rebellion," says Smith. "We think that we're free and we hope that our music encompasses that in what you hear and what you experience at our shows."

Sam Wilson, the band manager, says The Fly will release a demo album next week.
