One of the most talented groups of people lives right here among us. Their name is Flat Land, and you better believe they’ve got the melody, grooves and attitude to give you a great evening of music. Tastefully jammy, these folks fuse the right amount of funk with rock and use every other genre to fill in the blanks, making them one of the most diverse bands in Gainesville.

They’re not new, but every time you see Flat Land, you experience something different, something fun and refreshing. They work hard at their sound, and it shows.

Your next opportunity to see them perform is tonight, when they take the stage along with South Florida’s dark-funk pop quintet The Heavy Pets at The Jam, starting at 9 p.m.
