Whiskey Shivers will bring "Some Part Of Something" over to the Netherlands in January24-10-2018
Whiskey Shivers' self-ascribed "thrashgrass" rushes like a river through the Austinites' three full-lengths: a pinch of punk, a dash of pop, and 100-proof country pickin' that burns like a shot of Jameson. On their fourth album "Some Part of Something", on which they will tour Europa this January, the homegrown five-piece stretches its musical invention into something bigger. Expanding the limits of the band's big-tent bluegrass base further than previously.
Following the Bluegrass tradition, Whiskey Shivers’ first albums included several covers of some classics, adding a fantastic Bluegrass twist to them. In “Some Part of Something”, the band seems even more comfortable and confident in their writing —and justly so! That’s indisputably why it’s considered to be their "strongest" (Austin Chronicle) release yet.
Whiskey Shivers shows are always a sight to behold. Barefoot, sleeveless and sweaty, frontman and fiddle master Bobby Fitzgerald never stops smiling on stage. "All right! Let’s kick this thing in the face!” he barks, as the band tears into their stringed instruments at breakneck speed. It's almost impossible to watch him perform more than a song or two without cracking a smile yourself. His exuberance is contagious, and it bleeds through into the music. Whether they're playing at a backyard house party, a punk-rock dive bar or a sprawling music festival, crowds take notice. Notice yourself in January:
