Whiskey Bent Valley Boys
Now these boy will take you through the hills of ol’ Kentucky, bearing the stores, traditions and liquor that date back a century. This old-time band delivers with an intensity that would knock the sock’s right off of their forefathers feet.
Hailing from the back woods of Pewee Valley, Kentucky. Whiskey Bent Valley pay’s homage to their southern kin.Songs from the tobacco fields to the rivers, iron skillets to moonshine stills, upbeat and professional, this band posesses the skill to honor history and preserve the instruments, their style and every authentic nuance of the day. With their sense of fashion, From overalls to string ties, straw hats to silk vests, along with a turbo charged performance, their approach breathes fire into this vintage genre.
Incorporating time honored treasures from such icons as Roscoe Holcomb, The Stanley Brothers, and fiddle legend Tommy Jarrell, or a roster of original compositions including crowd-pleasers “Graveyard Blues” or “Shady River” the band puts on a timeless, energiezed show, Playing everything from ballads, breakdowns, sea shanties, and swamp stomps. Audiences from children on their parent’s knee to packed saloons past midnight ,and finding favor with the older generation as well makes for a wide range of appeal.
The boys take cues from parents and grandparents who have tapped into folk country and bluegrass through festivals, radio and endless collections of vinyl recrodings. Band founder Col. Mason Dixon hails from a long line of musicians and will tell you it’s not so much in the whiskey as it is the DNA. Each member’s family performs and enjoys the indigenous music of the appalachian foothills and pastures of Kentucky.
Appearances on a wide range of radio and tv programs, state fairs ,square dance’s and festivals have brought them an active fan base for this region. Often times the boy’s bring a delicious yield of their summer crops to gigs in bushel baskets for the taking. Going even more down to earth, they are making their cd packaging “green.” All of their records are made from industrial hemp paper and recycled cardboard with environmentally-friendly, vegetable-based inks.
No matter whats chillin’ in your mason jar, sour mash or sweet tea, come on out for a live show where the Whiskey Bent Valley Boys will be pounding out the swing dancing, foot stompin, hard driving tunes that are guaranteed to tickle your innards.
The new Chicago Farmer album is about Depression, Hope, Job Loss, Meth, Skateboards, A Divided Nation, Used Cars, The Late Shift, Farms, Factories, The Destruction of our Environment, and still being around to sing about it.
Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle
Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle is a Cincinnati based, 4 piece Americana/Folk band that blends the tradition of heroes like Woody Guthrie and Mississippi John Hurt w/ contemporary flavor. In its short existence, the band has grown its fan base by getting out in front of folks. Whether it's the great variety of local shows or their regional touring, they always bring high energy onto every stage on which they perform.
Buffalo Wabs (aka Matt Wabnitz) spearheads this group, playing guitar and taking most of the vocal duties. Casey Campbell, Ian Mathieu, and Scott Risner comprise The Price Hill Hustle side of the equation. The group is deeply rooted in the tradition of Old Time pioneers; however, the energy they bring to a live performance could burn down the rowdiest honky-tonk in town.
The four members met through the Cincinnati music community at open mics and seeing each other at other shows around town. They've all had different musical projects of their own. After joining each other onstage at several venues they realized the chemistry was undeniable. They began playing more and more, and it seemed as though the more they played, the more they played. Crowds were hypnotized immediately.
"The Hustle," as they are often referred to, brings something uniquely different that is rarely found with bands. The band brings its own vibe everywhere it goes. It's almost a culture in itself. Followers have even begun to invent their own vernacular; for example, you may hear someone say they got "Hustled" last night. That's not necessarily a bad thing. Getting "Hustled" is just one's way of saying, "I saw Buffalo Wabs & The Price Hill Hustle and they TORE IT UP!" Hopefully you can get yourself "Hustled" real soon.
