Vincent Flatts Final DriveSlim Jim's Liquor Store, N1 1QN , [Venue Details]
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 inBlacktour 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.
