We are a ROCK-N-ROLL BAND that believes in having a GREAT time sharing our own music as well as the music that inspired us!
"Be it redneck, politically kiss my ass, or real life situations, BFE makes a statement with our music,says frontman ROBBIE NICHOLS. "We want to give America what they haven't been getting for the past ten years, good old ROCK-n-ROLL". "WE are the NEW AMERICAN BAND, and we are going to rock the world."
The first CD "CAME OUT OF THE WOODS" is just where we come from. Out in the sticks, 100 miles from the most happening place. Hailing from the OHIO RIVER foothills we have entertained audiences with our HEAVY SOUTHERN EDGE ROCK-N-ROLL from the Tri-State to the shores of the Atlantic. Our shows include our own original music as well as 100's of cover tunes from LyNyRd SkYnYrD to MeTaLlIcA. We have opened shows for QUIET RIOT, JACKYL, BLUE OYSTER CULT, L.A. GUNS, COREY STEVENS, DAVID ALLAN COE and THE SOUTHERN ROCK ALL-STARS.
We have just completed our 2nd. CD "BORN IN A BARN" and it will be released sometime in JUNE. It was recorded at "THE RECORDING WORKSHOP" in Chillicothe, Ohio by JOHN TRUMAN and mixed by MICHAEL SHIPLEY at Graystone Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.
We are dedicated to our music and our fans everywhere. You'll be hearing a lot more from us; we plan on being around for a long time.
