Originally formed in 1986, after John Keane left Phil & The Blanks, the "Flats" play psychedelic tunes from 1967 - 1972 by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Cream, Steppenwolf, Santana, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and the Beatles. Strawberry Flats was started as a fun cover band to pay tribute to the psychedelic music of that era. The band also performs some oddball one-hit wonders like "Hot Smoke and Sassafrass" by Bubble Puppy. Overall it's a lot louder and more testosterone driven than the Blanks stuff. Strawberry Flats consists of veteran local musicians John Keane on vocals and guitar, Tim White on keyboards, Scott Sanders on bass and backing vocals, and Deane Quinter on drums. Come re-live the late 60's/early 70's once again at The Foundry!
