FLATHEAD FORD Bluesy Rock / Electric Jazz Starkville, Mississippi
East Stage 1:00 to 1:45
Loud, raucous guitar-based Mississippi blues that refuses to stay between the lines, Flathead Ford is made up of Starkville, Mississippi all-stars Jerry Carnathan (guitar, vox) John Staggers (drums) and Lee Graham (bass).
The band was formed in Columbus, Mississippi in 2005 as a somewhat rocking takeoff on Mississippi hill-country blues. While those roots are still clearly evident, Flathead has developed a high-intensity show that wanders through blues as well as bluesy rock and even unique heavy electric jazz at times, showing off the ability of the bands experienced and accomplished members.
A Starkville-area underground favorite, the group is never afraid to tackle any song or genre - no matter the tune, it always comes out sounding like Flathead Ford. Hearing is believing.
