The Whiskey Brothers play bluegrass music!
...and Western Swing....and Tex/Mex....and polka?
Our music is a mix of bluegrass, traditional country, western swing, cajun, and conjunto, and our members' encyclopedic knowledge of songs means that no reasonable song request will go unplayed. We even surprise ourselves sometimes!
All of the Whiskey Brothers are veterans of the San Francisco Bay Area music scene, and their combined experience means that every Whiskey Brothers show is different, and always fun!
As a recent article said: "These veteran Bay Area musicians know so many songs that they'll entertain just about any 'reasonable' request from the crowd". That's not entirely accurate - we have entertained quite a few unreasonable requests too!
We were privileged to play twice a month for twenty years at the Albatross Pub in Berkeley. Sadly, the Albatross could not survive the COVID epidemic and closed in 2020. It lives on in our memories!
The SF Examiner preaches the Whiskey Brothers' gospel!
The Whiskey Brothers were featured in a wonderful article in the SF Examiner a while back: check it out here!
We also got some very nice press it an article in Stanford Daily - check it out here!
Sample quote: " The Whiskey Brothers offer a bluegrass barrage backed by a song catalog that is unmatched by any bay area band. From traditional bluegrass hymns and old time rags to Romanian folk and Western Swing, any Albatross veteran will let you know, the Whiskey Brothers never play the same show twice, and are anything but dull."
