THE WHISKEY REBELLION:
From the deepest darkest jungles of Leicestershire, comes a band so full of vibrant gypsy-punk energy that there is not a man or woman alive who can keep themselves from dancing like an idiot to their anarchic, upbeat folk rhythms. Feature a blazing line up of banjo, mandolin, violin, accordion, guitar, bass, drums, and TWO super-sexy vocalists for the price of one, these hair-brained harlequins produce a sound that creeps up on your eardrums and throttles your unsuspecting brain from the inside out. From swinging sea-shanties, uptempo gypsy jams, crazy balkan polkas, soulful celtic folk medleys, all the way to blasting punk mashups and hard rocking power ballads, The Whiskey Rebellion make it a matter of pride to pack as much charisma and passion as they can into each and every sweat-laden performance
