His band the Mighty Flyers has had varying personnel, the constant being his wife Honey on piano. He appears on the cover of 2011's Almighty Dollar with his hair white, and on the title song, an original, he notes that he hasn't exactly gotten rich by spending his life playing the blues. Yet he's still at it, and the album is a representative one for him and the group (whose other permanent members are guitarist Henry Carvajal and drummer Dave Kida). They play some ‘40s-style jump blues on the leadoff track, Jimmy Liggins' "Move Out Baby," and Jesse Belvin's.
Almighty Dollar heralds Rod Piazza's latest achievement in a career that spans over four decades and twenty-six recordings. Piazza has long been recognized for his dedication and commitment to excellence as evidenced by the many awards and accolades he and his band have racked up over the years. This time out, The Mighty Flyers rocket into the stratosphere as Piazza pilots his crew through another harp-fueled voyage propelled by some very special guests including Bay Area guitarist Rusty Zinn and Mississippi-bred bluesman Johnny Dyer. The band includes Honey Piazza on piano,.
