Fusing tranquil bluegrass with punk sensibilities, Whiskey Shivers is a sight to behold, bringing together a diverse group of masterful musicians in a genre-pushing sound that gets concertgoers of all ages and backgrounds dancing. Featuring frenetic banjo and guitar picking, lyrical fiddles, propulsive upright bass and a frenzied washboard, the group delivers soaring vocal harmonies in songs that explore themes of life in the country and raw emotional landscapes. The bands members hail from across the U.S. but came together in Austin, Texas where they released their debut album Monster Hawg in 2010. With contagious joy and break-neck speed string-playing, Whiskey Shivers funnels unbridled passion into high-energy live-shows that get audiences on their feet and coming back for more—including performances at permanent Levitt venues in Arlington, Texas (2014) and Los Angeles (2014, 2015). And before the summer comes to a close, these veteran Levitt performers will delight Levitt AMP audiences in St. Johnsbury, Va. As well as Sheboygan, Wis.!
