Feb 2012: In addition to creating CD package design, advertising posters and tour merchandise, we also created and launched the new official website for Zen Road Pilots. The new site makes use of spry accordion panels, video lightbox and JQuery sliders. The layout is easily viewed on iPhones and Android smart phones via browser.
Screen shot of front page below:
The Zen Road Pilots are a three-piece band in the classic tradition. They combine the psychedelic blues of the sixties with gorgeous melodies, and great songs with high-flying jams that inspire the mind and motivate the feet. Add two world-class singers, and you have yourself a huge sound in a very small package. The driving force behind this band is the rock-solid rhythm section, comprised of the intricate bass playing of Ira Walker and the relentless attack of drummer Tom “Fee” Falletti, who have a lock on the pocket. Soaring over this sturdy foundation are the high-flying guitars of Monty Byrom, who deftly combines ripping psychedelic guitar riffs with sweet, soulful melodies.

The members of the Pilots are three-quarters of the popular eighties rock band, Billy Satellite, which had a couple of hits on Capitol records with their songs, “Satisfy Me” and “I Wanna Go Back”, for which they made videos that showed on MTV in its infancy. They did very well but got caught in a shake-up at the record company that prevented their follow-up effort from ever reaching the street. Flash forward twenty-five years to a benefit reunion concert that found the boys basking in the glory of days gone by and left them inspired to create new music together born out of brotherhood and bonded by time.
