Whiskey Shivers - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Whiskey Shivers
Hatched in the twilight months of ought nine, these five young men came from all corners of the US looking to do one thing: knock the dust off roots music. A freewheelin', trashgrassin', folk tornado, the Whiskey Shivers take traditional instrumentation, soak it in gasoline and send it into outer space. Breakneck speeds, killer grooves and impeccable musicianship: it's enough to make Bill Monroe himself do a double-take as he spins in his grave. With upright bass, fiddle, washboard, banjo, guitar, and reasonably priced merchandise, Whiskey Shivers adds a fine layer of grit on top of the hard-driving rhythms of traditional bluegrass. They've been called everything from "trashgrass" to "hardcore roots" to "crazy-assed redneck music" — whatever the words, the meaning is the same: Whiskey Shivers brings the house down.

"...bopping, hillbilly songs about the Mario Brothers? Who are these guys?!"
Drew Edwards - Rockabilly Online

"'Awwwwyeaaahhhhahahaa!!' If you could package Whiskey Shivers into one common sound, that'd be it."
