In The Know
The Hamilton Live presents Commander Cody Band with Mike Marlin (former child prodigy who defeated mid-life crisis to make brilliant, brooding rock record) on May 28, 2016.
Look in any book on the History of Rock and Roll and you will find Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen The band’s name was inspired by 1950’s film serials featuring the character Kommando Kody and from a feature version of an earlier serial, King of the Rocket Men, released under the title Lost Planet Airmen.
The band's founder and leader, George Frayne, took the stage name Commander Cody. Among many other achievement, this eight piece super band’s album Deep in the Heart of Texas is one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s top 100 albums.
Today the Commander Cody Band features Mark Emerick on guitar, Steve Barbuto on drums, Chris Olsen on pedal steel, and Randy Bramwell on bass. Cody is still trying to pound his piano into submission. And they all sing.
