The Whiskey River Band™ is an original Connecticut band, playing the finest Southern Rock north of Dixie since 1987. They were 4-time winners of The New Haven Advocate's (local A&E paper) "Best Of" for Southern Rock/Country music - by enough of a landslide to cause them to retire the category for several years in the early 90s. Although they primarily play Southern and Classic Rock, they also incorporate Blues, Funk and Soul into their sets. Over their 20 year career, they've shared the stage with bands like Charlie Daniels, The Outlaws, .38 Special, Johnny Winter and Marshall Tucker and also have opened for Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Doobie Brothers on June 28, 2007. The Whiskey River Band's music is currently on heavy rotation on many internet-based stations and podcasts throughout the world.
