FTB is a modern take on an old timeless classic sound which includes many traditional country elements such as fiddle, banjo and pedal steel guitar. This combined with spot-on vocal harmonies, dual electric guitars and a rock solid rhythm section, is what creates the authenticity of the band. They are led by the power duo up front featuring Mid-Michigan's own Randy Badour on Lead Vocals/Acoustic Guitar and Kyle Andrew of Metro Detroit on Lead Guitar & Vocals. These guys continue to prove why they’re one of the Top Recognized Regional Country Acts!
