Whiskey River is a UK-based, swamp-rocking, Louisiana-style Zyde-cajun band performing Red-Hot Blues from the Bayous. Just add a taste of Good Rocking Country, some retro-style, Gretsch-fuelled Rock’n’Roll et voila; c’est si bon!.
The band is led by Aidan Sheehan and Martin Blake with whiskey-soaked vocal harmonies, heartfelt lyrics delivered in both English and Cajun-French plus a fab bunch of fine musicians behind them. Hey… you’re right there, back on the Bayou boy!
Featuring Dave Wood (wild Psy-de-co fiddle) plus Dennis Schiavon (aka The Revillos’ Vince Santini) on bass, Pedro Brown on drums and Ted Bunting (blistering Zydeco sax – he’s previously recorded with X-Ray Spex). Sometimes the line-up alters depending on what we need (see below).
We may include a Zydeco frottoir (rubboard) player – yet, whatever happens, bring your dancing shoes!
Music workshops & PA Hire also available.
NB – this band is also available as a trad-style Cajun dance band (trio / quartet), an exciting Americana quartet (Bluegrass, Country, Folk and Cajun) and last but never least, Martin & Aidan present acoustic Americana plus a world of folk as “The Whiskey River Boys” (duo).
