NO TIME FLATT ~ MORE ABOUT US
About Us NO TIME FLATT is blazing a red-hottrail on today’s bluegrass music scene, with their highly energetic and hard drivin’ live performances. Centered around tight harmony vocals and great song selections, No Time Flatt strives to perform the highest quality version of bluegrass music, by selecting great songs and material that has not been recorded often in bluegrass, including originals and music from other genres, tempered with a mix of some classic bluegrass standards which are uniquely arranged by the band. Formed in 2015, No Time Flatt includes the talents of Patrick Cupples (bass, vocals), Steve Moore (banjo, guitar, vocals), Kevin Wright (guitar, vocals), Becky Weaver (fiddle, vocals) and Kevin Keen (mandolin). No Time Flatt is currently recording their first project, which should be available before the end of 2016. Fans of No Time Flatt are lovingly referred to as Flattheads!
Patrick Cupples (bass, vocals) Patrick is a native of Dyersburg, TN where he lives with his wife Tammy and son Byron. He is a practitioner in Prosthetics and hopes that he never has to see you as a patient. His primary instrument is the upright bass but is also a drummer and rhythm
guitar player. He loves being part of a rhythm section and enjoys setting the groove and timing for the band. Patrick’s musical influences are wide and varied ranging from classic country, blues, big band swing and rock but has a deep love and respect for Bluegrass music. His timing and rhythm come from his father who was a drummer in high school who won the coveted John Phillip Sousa award for musical excellence. His father’s timing and his exposure to many genres of music have created an eclectic and interesting take on his view of acoustic and bluegrass music. He holds a great respect for the originators of the bluegrass genre but leans toward the innovators and trailblazers that continue to move the music forward. Patrick is also a sound engineer for both live and studio work and specializes in acoustic sound reinforcement and recording.
