"Aged, fine spirits of music from the guys in the neighborhood"
Like aged, fine rare spirits, that's who Suburban Whiskey really is: a premium group of veteran musicians, each with decades of playing experience, all dedicated to playing the classic grooves, iconic jams, rousing anthems, rock-outs, and just plain fun shuffles, heartfelt ballads, and riffs of yesteryear, as well as creating an eclectic mix of new expressions of original songwriting inspiration.
Founded in April of 2012, Suburban Whiskey hails out of Austin, TX, the live music capital of the world; although, more precisely, they spend the lion's share of their time rehearsing and recording in one of Austin's picturesque suburbs in the Texas Hill Country near scenic Lake Travis.
That is, far from the "starving artist" stereotypes of many groups of talented musicians, the members of Suburban Whiskey just happen to all be successful and accomplished business leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals.
At its heart, Suburban Whiskey is a band that enjoys the privilege of being able to play purely for the passion of the music they love and wish to share.
The band's musical tastes range from the influences of artists such as Eric Clapton, The Byrds, The Kinks, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Credence Clearwater Revival, Cream, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Dwight Yokum, Melissa Etherege, Van Morrison, The Righteous Brothers, and many, many others.
Suburban Whiskey, by design, plays it sets very "old school." That is, with REAL guitars, REAL acoustic drums, vintage amps, and NO auto-tuned singers. It's a LIVE adult experience designed to get your toes tapping, your hands clapping, and your voice hoarse from singing along to songs you may have thought you'd long forgotten.
