Pat Foley’s History

Pat Foley has performed over 3, 000 shows during his 20-year career. His versatile and energetic shows have captured audiences from New England to the Mid-West. His broad repertoire of more than 70 Original songs as well as over 600 Cover songs can excite crowds of all ages. An audience can not help but be effected by Pat’s chameleon-like stage presence and enthusiasm. (You’ll never see Pat sitting on a stool through a show!)

Pat’s solo career has brought him many opportunities. Some of the most memorable are the many national acts he has opened for. They include Dave Mason (8 times), 38 Special, Bad Company, Peter Wolf (of the J. Giles Band), John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, David Bromberg (2 times), Leon Russell (2 times), Commander Cody (3 times), Jim Messina (of Loggins & Messina), Buckwheat Zydeco, Dr. John, Rory Block, Michael Murphy, Aztec Two Step, John Cowan (from New Grass Revival), and John Sebastian. He has also had the good fortune to play some acoustic music with Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead. In the summer of 1993, Pat released his first cassette entitled "CHANGIN’" (recorded on his label – MiOwn Records). This cassette is a compilation of eight original songs.

Aside from solo work, Pat has also led his own bands – Infrared (a Maine based, 4-piece rock band in 85 & 86) and P.F. & The Flyers (a 6-piece R&B, rock band with two horns). P.F. & The Flyers performed from 1989 to 1993 and were based in Colorado. They opened for many national acts, including REO Speedwagon, Marshall Tucker Band, Bob Welch, Ozark Mountain Daredevils and Firefall.
Pat's CD The Lost Tracks which was put out in 2000 on his own label MiOwn Records
has sold over 5000 copies. It’s a mix of recordings from 94-99. There are 12 Tracks on that CD of all original material.

Pat is currently writing and performing in the New England area, and is currently recording and finishing up his 3rd CD. One Day at a Time should be relased in the Fall of 2013. So watch for more exciting things to come in 2013. This New year Pat and his band will be concentrating on playing more and more all Original music shows and venues.
