White Ghost Shivers
White Ghost Shivers is an eclectic American band based in Austin, Texas which claims cabaret, jazz, vaudeville, hokum, western swing, hillbilly, jugband and ragtime as its inspiration. The band has been declared "Best None of the Above" by the Austin Music Awards for 2005 and 2007. W just like them cuz they're a toe-tapping good time.
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.
WHISKEY SHIVERS PRESS
As legend has it (depending on whom you ask, or whoever is telling the story), Austin quintet Whiskey Shivers formed around 2009. Some say they were hatched in a woodpile. Others say they tumbled out of one-a them rancid whiskey bottles and frightened the locals. But mostly, it was a talented bunch of musicians who figured they’d make great music together. - Laurie Gallardo - KUT Austin
...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. - Luke Border - Austin Music Weekly
Whiskey Shivers gives a great music performance (with an oddly hypnotizing video) - William Goldman - CBS News
This is crazy-assed Redneck music with a twisted music video that turns dark as the deepest night right at the end... FHM Magazine
This is what you could refer to as hardcore roots – traditional country with a bit of Appalachian mountain music executed on punk rock jet fuel. - Laurie Gallardo - KUT Austin, 90.5 FM
You may have never heard of Whiskey Shivers, but as of today, you're never going to hear the end of them. - PerezHilton.com
Whiskey Shivers would've been an ideal replacement for Old Crow Medicine Show at the 2011 Austin City Limits Music Festival. - Austin Powell - Austin Chronicle
The band’s ultra country singing and bango [sic] playing is actually really good; however the music video, in lack for better words, freaks me out! - RyanSeacrest.com
