  3. Red Line Roots Review!

    From RLR.com: “My wife and I have differing tastes when it comes to music. Sure, we enjoy a lot of the safe stuff, even tolerate the stuff each other listen to that the other doesn’t necessarily like. There are few bands that the two of us absolutely love, The Whiskey Boys are one of those very few.

    With a “Punch Brothers”-esque style, focused on musicianship and arrangements that many other artists are intimidated by, The Whiskey Boys are a force of nature…bluegrass nature. There is a pop sentiment to much of David Delaney’s writing style. You can latch on to a phrasing or a chorus easily, but that’s where the easiness ends. Each solo break, having 4 instruments playing very differing parts in an organized chaos that is purely brilliant. Each and every member of the group is a well accomplished, brilliant and incredible master of their instruments. But together, it’s really something to marvel at.

    All that talent on one stage could get a bit competitive, but the shows these guys play are always incredibly fun. They love making music together and it shows.

    Get ready to get down with The Whiskey Boys this Saturday at the Lizard Lounge. The bluegrass music…on steroids.”

    See us at Club Passim March 19th with Molly Pinto Madigan!
