Huck Flyn was born in Evanston, Illinois, on the north side of Chicago. Early on, his family moved to southern California where Flyn started playing guitar at age 11 (a Sears Silvertone) and did his first gig at age 13. He was part of a few bands in high school and graduated from Thousand Oaks high school and got an AA degree from L.A. Valley College in Journalism. He received a scholarship to Pepperdine University, which he decided not to take because he was so involved in live performance. He met up with director/choreographer, Kenny Ortega (High school Musical I, II, III) in 1973 and together they wrote the script and soundtrack to Ortega's brain child, "Bimbo's Cosmic Circus," an off-Broadway Rock musical where they had success in San Francisco, Hollywood, and San Diego.
After the play closed, Flyn formed a band and rocked in his hometown of Thousand Oaks, Ca five nights a week. He attracted such players as Scott Page (Toto, Pink Floyd, Supertramp), Mike Murphy (REO), Lee Thornburg (Tower, Rod, Tom Petty), Jazzer, Richard Elliott, and many, many others to come join the band where he also attracted some notables to come out, listen, and hang; Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Steve Perry, Steve Cropper, Heather Locklear, just to name a few.
In 1977, while attending a L.A. Kings hockey game, he met and became friends with Chuck Barris. He wound up doing several Gong Shows and a Dating Game. In 1985, Huck Flyn, joined the "Otis Day and the Knights" tour in New York in which Dewayne Jesse reprised his "ANIMAL HOUSE" role on the road. They toured all over the East coast.
Huck performed on Knots Landing in 1987 and shortly after, while visiting a comedy club in San Francisco, he ran into a couple old friends, Bruce Baum and Vic Dunlop and they hooked him up with a guest at a major comedy club, and in no time, Huck became a crowd favorite and started getting calls to do clubs, small concerts, and colleges. With guitar in hand, Huck has rocked comedy audiences since the early nineties. He was known around the circuit as "The Rock Roll Comedian".
In 2002, Huck hooked up with engineer/producer Earl Mankey and began planning a Blues record called Huckleberry Blues. In 2004 he started talking to producer, John Porter (Taj, Keb Mo, Los Lonley Boys) and brought in legendary keyboardist, Mike Finnigan, drummer extraordinaire, Jim Christie, Counting Crows bassist Matt Malley, and several others to help and is now completing the record, he is in negotiations with Bongo Music out of London and hopes to make it all happen very soon.
