Freeflite was a hard-working rock band that emerged from Rapid City, South Dakota in the early 1970s. The band comprised of four young and talented musicians: Roger Groethe on drums, Larry Galbraith on lead vocals, Don Paris on bass, and Peter Diggins on lead guitar. The band's journey began in junior high when Peter, Don, and Roger started playing music together. In 1971, they welcomed Larry to the band, who became the lead vocalist, and they immediately began performing at school dances, clubs, and concerts around the Midwest. Although Mark Parkison added keyboards for a few years, the core of the band was a quartet. 

Freeflite quickly became one of the most sought-after bands in the region, playing covers of popular songs by renowned bands such as Uriah Heep, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and David Bowie. This caught the attention of booking agents and concert promoters, and before long, they were opening regional shows for major touring acts including Styx, REO Speedwagon, Foghat, The Guess Who, Jo Jo Gunn, Head East, Black Oak Arkansas, Flash, and Deodato. 

Over six years, Freeflite worked on original music composed by Peter. They had a passion for theatrical, heavy, and progressive rock, and their live performances had a hard-hitting and relentless style. The band's undivided dedication allowed for many complex and unique arrangements, heard in live performances on stage and on demo recordings. 

Freeflite's enduring friendship is a testament to the power of music to bring people together. The band would like to thank Mark Parkison and Dave Chambers for their great work and companionship. They also extend their gratitude to their family, friends, and fans for their kindness and support throughout the years.
