BAND HISTORY :
The Flat Git It Gang started in 2003 when the lead guitarist Andre and lead singer Jan got together and found some amazing Radio Shows from the 1950's recorded in Springfield, Missouri.
That started off the idea to form a Hillbilly-Country band in the same style. It's been a long time since then but The Flat Git It Gang is swinging like never before.
After many gigs around Sweden and Europe the band has recently put out a CD on Vintjärn Records.
A full length CD is also planned in 2009, so come on in and check out what's going on! The Flat Git It Gang are :Lead vocal:
