Gilford's Eric Grant Band took over Southwest Airlines Flight 592 in Manchester on Monday morning, giving a live, on-board concert.
The concert was part of a birthday celebration for the airline known for its unconventional approach to air travel.
The band sang its new song "Paradise" and was filmed for Southwest's new reality television show "On The Fly" on The Learning Channel.
The Eric Grant Band features seven members, all from New Hampshire. The band has opened for country bands such as Lady Antebellum, Sugarland and Jason Aldean.
Passengers came to a standstill at Gate 14 when the band started to play, and many recorded the performance on cellphones.
