January 2018------Flatland is anxious to get out and start playing our music in 2018. We already have a number of jobs booked for the first three months of the year and look forward to getting more in the near future. There are a number of festivals and local events we hope to play this year and hope you’ll be there when we do. Be sure to check our schedule often to see where and when we'll be performing our music. We hope to soon have a new CD for you too. We’ll be going in the studio in a few days to record a few songs and hope to get them finished and out to sell at our performances in a few weeks. This will be our first CD in a few years and we’re really looking forward to getting it finished and mastered. We’ll let you know as soon as it’s ready! As usual, we’ll be pickin’ and jammin’ at the annual Cabin Fever Pickin’ Party in Virginia Beach, March 1, 2 & 3 at the Holiday Inn Conference Center, Virginia Beach / Norfolk. Hope you can attend and stop by and “pick a few” with us if you do. We’ll be there Thursday, Friday and Saturday! Soon the cold weather will pass, “Cabin Fever” will be over and the outdoor events will be springing up. We always look forward to the time when we get out, play our music and meet new and old fans who enjoy our music. Hope to see you at one of our events this year.

February 2, 20218---Thanks to all who came out tho the Freight Shed in Yorktown last night. The record setting crowd was great and we had a fun time playing our music for them. Take a look at our Facebook Page at "Flatland Bluegrass Band" for some of pictures. Next, Flatland performs close to home at the Carrollton Firehouse for their Monthly Bluegrass Concert Series. Flatland was the first band to perform at the Concerts when it started back in March of 2009. Since then the crowd has grown to filling the Firehouse at each concert. So get the family, (bring the kids, grandkids), and friends together and come on out for some good fun and music. The Firehouse is located on Rt. 17 about 2 1/2 miles south of the James River Bridge. Soft drinks and the best hot dogs in town are served and the donation for the concert is $5 per person. Don't forget your lawn chair. Hope to see you there!>

Visit our PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE for more dates when and where we'll be playing our music. Hope you will come out to see and support us at one of our performances soon!

"FLATLAND AND BACKROADS"








The Flatland Bluegrass Band is an exciting home-grown Virginia Bluegrass band from Southeastern Virginia. They are now one of the region's most popular Bluegrass bands. The Flatland Bluegrass Band's members are veteran musicians who have many years of on-stage musical experience. They have performed from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Chesapeake Bay, and from Northern to Southern Virginia, and from North Carolina to Pennsylvania. Through the years they have been chosen to play some of the top Bluegrass Festivals in the State. The tight harmonies and high-energy instrumentals make this an excellent group to entertain all ages with their mix of traditional & contemporary Bluegrass music as well as Bluegrass Gospel Music. The current members are Randy Grigg, guitar and vocals; Karen Grigg, mandolin and vocals; Fred Staggs, bass; and Jim Andersen, banjo and vocals. We're proud of the fact that we have three military veterans, representing three of the military branches, in our band: Fred, U.S. Army; Jim, U.S. Navy; and Randy, USAF. The Band performs for private events as well as public functions and has shared the stage with a number of Nashville musicians and played at many Bluegrass festivals with some of the biggest names in Bluegrass through the years. They are right at home playing festivals, concerts, stage shows, private parties and other special events. Just E-Mail us for more information, availability and prices.

Thanks again for visiting with us and come back to visit real soon!
