Performing Saturday, July 13th
When you put together a mix of seasoned musicians working to do something different than what they have done in the past and a fresh young talent you get Brianna Helbling & the Outsiders.
Fuzzy (lead guitar, vocals, mandolin), Craig Fluto (bass/vocals) and Mitch Bosch (drums/vocals) are no strangers to the Bismarck/Mandan music scene having played in numerous bands over the years. Fuzzy and Craig have played for decades all over the upper midwest doing Classic Rock and Blues, Mitch played in the laid back Bismarck area bands Buffalo Alice and Charlie Horse. All having different musical styles had the possible setlist ranging from Classic Rock to Blues to Pop. One thing seemed to be missing.... COUNTRY! And what better Country to do than female Country?
The invitation was sent out to then 16 year old Brianna Helbling, who has been performing and writing songs since she was 10, to provide that female Country voice. After only a few rehearsals it was clear that the guys were indeed doing something different than what they have done in the past, being members of a COUNTRY BAND. To date the band has had the privilege of opening for Confederate Railroad, Blackhawk and Neal McCoy as well as a set at the 2018 ND Country Fest. Brianna Helbling & the Outsiders brings you the best of today's Country along with Classic Rock, Pop and Original Music as Brianna has been making monthly trips to Nashville writing material for a future album .
