NEWSFLASH! "Bluegrass Today" publishes review of NO TIME FLATT by John Curtis Goad on December 5, 2017. Go here: 
 November 27, 2017
      Every once in a while there comes a new band that makes the listener wonder where this band has been. In 2015, NO TIME FLATT came together around Jackson, TN, and got really serious and really busy honing and refining their sound. The old friends in the group came up with some original songs, some familiar bluegrass standards with a twist, and even a few country classics, again with a new feel. They put together their first album, No Time Flatt, and Clark Shaw's Old Country Store in Jackson threw them a CD release party. The band expected maybe 50 people to show up for the party. Four or five times that many showed up and packed the restaurant. It was quite a night! 
     No Time Flatt is building a reputation for superior quality instrumental work and tight four-part vocal harmony that audiences really enjoy. The band's energy fills an auditorium, and the crowds really let them know that they "get it".

     The members of the band are as follows:  Kevin Wright (Humboldt, TN, guitar and vocals), Patrick Cupples (Dyersburg, TN, bass and vocals), Becky Goodrum Weaver (Montezuma, TN, fiddle and vocals), Kevin Keen (Corinth, MS, mandolin), and Steve Moore (Jackson, TN, banjo and vocals).
      No Time Flatt recently performed at Bluegrass Monday (4th Monday each month) at the Collins Theatre in Paragould, AR, and here are the songs they performed for the enthusiastic audience:  Set 1: Suzanne, It Takes One To Know One, You Can Have Her, Roundup, This Heart of Mine, Look Down That Lonesome Road, Where No Cabins Fall, Fox On The Run, Angelina Baker, Say Won't You Be Mine, Before The Cold Wind Blows, Dim Lights Thick Smoke, and Ten Plagues. Set 2: Lonely Moon, Dollarhide, Dixieland Delight, Kentucky Mandolin, Beulah Land, Keen Mountain Prison, The Golden Rule, It Must Be Love, Smoky Mountain Rain, Foggy Mountain Special (w/different banjo styles), Foolin' Around, Long Gone, and the encore was the beautiful Jimmy Fortune song, I Believe.
     Bluegrass Monday is sponsored by KASU 91.9 FM on the campus of Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, along with other hometown business owners.
