April 18, 2018---Thanks to all who came to see us at the Richmond Bluegrass Jam last weekend. I understand over $100,000 was raised for the Veteran's Fisher House at McQuire Veteran's Hospital. Also a very special thanks to all the bands and volunteers who helped make the Jam happen. Hope we can come back next year! This week FBB performs on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Friday we go to the SGT Jayton D. Patterson VFW Post 4411 in Franklin, Va. This will be our first time performing in Franklin in a few years and we're looking forward to play our music for the folks there. Then, on Saturday, we'll be one of the bands opening for the U.S. Navy's Bluegrass Band, Country Current. This will be an afternoon filled with good music, with three other bands performing before Country Current performs. Isle of Wight's own, Haley Stiltner, plays banjo with Country Current and we're sure there will be a big crowd there to welcome her home. The Jessie Burdick Band plays at 3 PM, followed by Flatland at 4 PM and Hard Knox at 5 PM. Country Current will start their music around 6:15 PM. The concert will be held at the in the downtown Smithfield area on Main Street just down from the post office. Don't forget your lawn chair! Hope you can get to one, or both, of our performances this weekend. If you do, stop by and say "hello". We are still booking for 2018. Just E-Mail us for more information, availability and prices.

"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.
