As the youngest of four siblings, Brian was born into a music loving family, listening to everything from Prince to Waylon Jennings.  Music was in his blood but, not in his soul, until seeing Garth Brooks in concert in 1995.  From that, he found his calling!  At the age of twenty-one, finally old enough to get into a bar, Brian and his brother began a country music duo, The McPherson Brothers.  Playing local bars in Sacramento to casinos, night clubs and yes...campgrounds...throughout Nevada, Oregon and all over California to whomever would listen!  From that evolved Flat Busted, the Rockin' Party Band!  Brian is not only the lead vocalist and blazes on the guitar, but he gets the fans out on the dance floor , working the crowd with his wireless mic and making everyone feel the music as he does.  Brian McPherson rocks in a country kinda way!

Jeff has played the drums all his life from California to Nashville, Texas and beyond.  His versatility in music (Country, Rock n' Roll, R&B and Funk) makes him a perfect match for Flat Busted.  In addition to drums, Jeff plays percussion and loves to sing, which he did while in the military playing in the USAF band.  Along with his love of the local scene, Jeff has opened for many well-known artists like Merle Haggard, Trace Adkins, Kevin Sharpe and Easton Corbin, just to name a few.  When you see Jeff rock those drums, you will know they are his passion.
