Blues. Booze. Boogie: The Birmingham band’s ethos in three words. If you’ve seen them on the road, you’ll know what it means. If not, you’ll figure it out fast once you do. Put simply, Vincent Flatts Final Drive is a southern – infused, blues ‘n’ boogie band. Going from blues,
to country rock to fast and exciting boogie rock ‘n’ roll, the music goes through the genre gears. But one thing is constant: Steve ‘Bertie’ Burton’s killer voice.
In the 80s, Bertie fronted UK rock band Starfighters, touring the USA with AC/DC on their Back in Black tour and Ozzy Osbourne on his Diary of a Madman tour). He lived the dream.
Some years later, in the early 90s, he formed the Flatts. And so it was for over 20 years. But time,and boozing, took its toll. He needed some time out, folding the band in 2016. At the start of 2018, he joined forces with three other musicians (each nearly half his age) to reform his baby. And armed with fresh blood and a new perspective, he set about getting back on top. Since then, the band has performed at venues and festivals across the UK and Scandinavia. They’ve also recorded an EP and a new album, Back in the Saddle. All available on Bandcamp.Prior to the pandemic, there was talk of a US tour and plenty more dates in Europe. But for now, the
focus is at home and bringing some excitement to the lockdown weary folk of the UK.
