We're heading back to the Holler for an afternoon of music, wine and wood-fired pizzas out in the woods. We'll be playing three sets from 1:00 - 6:00pm.
We're pulling "double duty" at this year's festival. First off, we're playing a regular festival set to close out the St. James Stage from 5:00 - 5:45pm. But, don't go too far, because we'll be kicking off the festival after party on the same stage from 6:15 - 6:45pm followed by The Steam Donkeys.
Our regular, 2nd Friday Happy Hour slot at Sportsmen's. There'll be plenty of electric and acoustic Americana hits and originals!
Flatbed Happy Hour -- May Edition....5:30-8:30pm. Hope to see you there.
Flatbed Happy Hour -- Last of Winter Edition Back to our regularly-scheduled 2nd Friday Happy Hour at Sportsmens Tavern. Two sets from 5:30 - 8:30pm. $3 @ the door. Hopefully, this will be the last one to happen in the crazy cold. Maybe it will just be moderately cold for April's show.
Sounds Like: Cracker, Blue Rodeo, Patty Griffin, Son Volt, Steve Earle

In mandolin/dobro man John F. Brady, drummer Ted Chubbuck Jr. and Telecaster 'chicken-picker' Daniel Smith, the Bassett-Labert-Tinsmon core has found an eminently talented tribe of like-minded players to solidify the Flatbed sound. The result is the finest roots-rock collective to emerge from our neck of the woods since the wonderful Steam Donkeys first started kicking in the stalls.”
