Between 1981 and 1985, the Mighty Flyers released three albums: Radioactive Material (1981), File Under Rock (1984), and From the Start to the Finish (1985). Piazza & the Mighty Flyers signed a contract with Black Top Records in 1991; the label later re-released the group's albums on CD.

In 2014, Piazza & the Mighty Flyers returned to Blind Pig with the album Emergency Situation.
Piazza and The Mighty Flyers have won or been nominated for just about every award that can be bestowed upon a blues band, played literally thousands of gigs around the world, recorded over a dozen highly acclaimed releases and along the way virtually created a new style of blues - a combination of low-down Chicago grit, suave West Coast swing and jazz and. the rhythmic drive of the best early R&B and rock & roll.
