ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Now these boy will take you through the hills of ol’ kentucky, bearing the stores, traditions and liqour that date back a century. This old-time band delivers with an intensity that would knock the sock right off of their forefathers feet.

Hailing from the back woods of PeWee Valley, Kentucky, Whiskey Bent Valley pays homage to their southern king— songs from the tobacco fields to the rivers, iron skillets to moonshine stills, upbeat and professional, the band posesses the skill to honor history and preserve the instruments, their style and every authentic, nuance of the day. With their divers fashion sense and stage. From overalls to string ties, straw hats to silk vests, along with a turbo-charged performance, their approach breathes fire into this vintage genre.

Blending their instrumental and vocal talents are; JR on the barnyard fiddle: the bands founder, Mason Dixon, is behind his unique style of claw hammer and three-finger style banjo, guitar, harmonica, standing tall with his doghouse bass is the bands youngest member, Leroy Jones; and on mandolin and once in a blue moon—spoons, Johnny Whippermule.

Incorporatin time-honored treasures from such icons as Roscoe Holcomb, The Stanley Brothers, and fiddle legend Tommy Jarrell, or a roster of original compositions including crowd-pleasers Baby Mine and “Late for the Dance” the band puts on a timeless, energiezed show; Playing everything from ballads, breakdowns, sea shanties, and swamp stomps. Audiences from children on their parent’s knee to packed saloons past midnight and finding favor with the older generation as well makes for a wide range of appeal.

The boys take cues from parents and grandparents who have tapped into folk country and bluegrass through festivals, radio and endless collections of vinyl recrodings. Band founder Mason Dixon hails from a long line of musicians and will tell you it’s not so much in the whiskey as it is the DNA. Each member’s family performs and enjoys the indigenous music of the appalachian foothills and pastures of Kentucky.

Appearances on a wide range of radio and tv programs, state fairs and festivals have brought them an active fan base for this region. Often times the boy bring a delicious yield of their summer crops to gigs in bushel baskets for the taking. Going even more down earth, they are taking their cd packaging “green.” Their upcoming new, full-length cd sleeve is industrial hemp paper and recycled cardboard with environmentally-friendly, vegetable-based inks.

No matter whats chillin’ in your mason jar, sour mash or sweet tea, come on out for a live show where the Whiskey Bent Valley Boys will be pounding out the swing dancing, foot stompin, hard driving tunes that are guaranteed to tickle your innards.
