FLATLEAVER is an original blue-collar rock band from the backwoods of Central Jersey. Founded by guitarists Leo Tignini and Joseph Rossano, FLATLEAVER has all the grit and roudiness of a bar room brawl but can also mellow you out like a good buzz on a Friday night. Hard to miss its throwback sound and Southern rock influence, FLATLEAVER brings five guys together who share a united vision to change the music landscape one note at a time and raise the volumes to "eleven." Not to be outdone by its distinct whiskey vocals, dual guitar solos and thumping rhythm section, the band's songs often pay tribute to its strong NYC roots, where popular colloquialisms like “johnny pump,” “flatleaver,” and “guido” were passed on through generations like old football jerseys and concert shirts. With Ron "JUMBO" Kelly bringing in the heavy-duty vocal artillery, and Dave Saley and Joseph Caccioppoli laying down the ultra sonic backbone grooves, FLATLEAVER is destined to become one of Central Jersey's most sought out acts heading into the summer of 2013.
