Hailing from Union County, NC the band was recently founded in 2013. Offering Southern roots going back many years and many bands, their years of rock and roll eventually came together to culminate with one epic band. Anchored in a collective past that goes much deeper into the well, songs like “Cross-eyed and Crazy”, “I Met Elvis at the Fast Fare” and “No Work”, and “No Pay” bring fans back time and again, yearning for more of their live show. No explanation needed; the words tell it all and you can feel the vibes.
Billy Bost, Rachel Garcia, Frank Sutton, Joe Williams, and Kevin Winchester make up this band called Flatland Tourists. Their individual talents meld together to create original Americana music featuring influences full of soul, bluegrass, plenty of jam and of course rock – showcasing ability on all levels. Playing at venues in and around Charlotte such as The Evening Muse, Double Door Inn, Puckett’s Farm Equipment, and Southsiders; the crowd of fans take away a unique experience similarly to a first time vacation…in a new town…with new people…kind of like tourists. And, after all, aren’t we all “tourists” of some sorts anyway?
