About the Show
Flascal Ratts began from fan's comments to Shane when he would sing in other projects. Maybe it was the similar vocal style, or spiky hair, much like Gary Levox, or the clothing he wore on stage that started an idea for a tribute to Rascal Flatts. This was around 2018, but after a few years, and friend's suggestions, it became something more. The passion of this music was evident for Paul as well, and the two formed a bond to make this the best it could be.
Growing up on Rascal Flatts' music, the band couldn't deny their success, nor could they figure out why they should wait any longer! The musicianship contained in FR spans worldwide, rather from worldwide touring, national artists, Billboard charting, and amazing ability. In late 2022, Shane made a call to Paul Herring to see if he might be interested in it too. He was very interested, and everyone they talked with encouraged them to do it. After a few months, and many phone calls and ads placed, they found the most brilliant musicians from Phoenix to Nashville. In early February of 2023, rehearsals began and already, the band has shows from northern Ohio to southern Alabama booked!
