If your tastes are more to the tasty twangy sounds of Alternative country or Bluegrass and not the slick saccharine of Nashville then Flatbed is for you. The band features one of Western New York's most versatile and beautiful voices in Joelle Labert and some mighty fine players themselves with Derek Bassett-guitar/vocals, John Brady-mandolin/dobro, Ted Chubbuck Jr.-drums, Daniel Smith-guitars and Michael Tinsmon-bass. On their new nine song CD they put on their traveling shoes for the lead off track "40 Miles", add some tasty guitar licks on "Ride", do the two step on "Roulette", add a jazzy swagger to "Liver & Kidneys" and take you home on "Big Winds Blow". With a little Flying Burrito Brothers, a little Grateful Dead, some Emmylou Harris and following their muse Flatbed is an enjoyable listen. Check them out at www.flatbedmusic.com
