At the core of the Flat River Band is:
Chad Sitze - lead singer, guitarist and songwriter
Dennijo Sitze - lead and harmony vocals, electric guitar, mandolin and harmonica
Andy Sitze - lead and harmony vocals, electric and upright bass
Originally from Fredericktown, Missouri the Sitze brothers began playing music at an early age in their parent’s band The Sitze Family. Music was an integral part of their everyday life. They soaked up a variety of musical influences during these years ranging from Bluegrass and Gospel to Country and Southern Rock.
Traveling the US performing at places like Dollywood, Silver Dollar City, numerous fairs, festivals and churches they quickly developed a reputation for great harmonies and musicianship. After many great performances and accolades it was time to move to Nashville and continue their musical journey as the Flat River Band. It wasn’t long before their reputation and dynamic performances allowed them to share the stage with veteran Nashville song writers John Scott Sherrill, Jimmy Stewart, Paul Overstreet, Michael Smotherman and numerous others.
Today you can hear some of FRB’s musical influences, creativity and signature sibling harmonies in their own music. It is said by many, if you were to describe the FRB sound you would need to combine the awesome harmonies of the Gatlin Brothers with the smooth southern music of The Marshall Tucker Band and down home country favorite Alabama, you would be listening to the soulful country sound known as the Flat River Band.
FRB’s latest CD, High Roller tells great stories about love, good times, bad times, despair and other situations that life throws at us every day. It is these same life experiences we share in our own lives which gives the Flat River Band its mass appeal.
