Whiskey Treats Join 7522 Beach Mountain Radio

2,469 views

The Whiskey Treats have a rebellious sound with undeniable passion and energy; imagine Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphy’s with redder necks and without the Celtic.

Their debut EP, called “Treat Yourself,” is fast, fun, and best enjoyed with your favorite bottle. Craven Moorehead, host of the long-running Ska-Punk Radio show, describes the Treats as “high energy bluegrass with punk rock swagger.”He compares the music to recent sensation Old Man Markley, and claims it is “perfect for PBR sing-a-longs around a whiskey fueled campfire.”

“Our fans relate to us because we don’t fit into specific mold and neither do they. When people ask what kind of music we play I always say it’s a high-energy infusion of bluegrass, punk, folk, and rock.” When they respond with “What?” I say, “It’s just fun. Relax, get a drink, and hit the dance floor.”

Each band member comes from completely different musical backgrounds; by blending their unique experiences the Whiskey Treats have created a distinctive sound. You can hear the traditional influences in the fiddle, mandolin and upright bass but there is no denying the disruptive and spirited influences of punk rock.

Formed in 2012, The Whiskey Treats strive to elevate the mood of the listener with their music and engaging performance. “We play raucous high-energy shows because we thrive on getting the crowd ramped up, you can just feel the energy of the crowd skyrocket once we take the stage. It’s the kind of music you listen to when you want to go out with your mates, drink pints at the bar and get a little rowdy.”

At a Whiskey Treats show you can expect lively danceable songs and fast on the feet crowd interaction. The band has fun on stage and it is contagious, audiences love the music and connect with them at a primal level. Whiskey Treats shows are a memorable experience for everyone, but the kids might be better off at home.

Whiskey Treats is excited that their music is heard on 7522 Radio.

The Story of Hunk•Ta•Bunk•Ta

Once upon a time, when I was growing up, my parents, brother, sister, three sets of aunties and uncles, 13 cousins and 6 dogs, (plus one scrawny stray cat we called “Tidbit”), gathered for Sunday lunch at my grandmother’s house.

While the biscuits baked, the potatoes boiled and the chicken fried, the grown ups chatted quietly in the living room and the children played in the yard. Rain or wind, sun or snow, we were a wild and giggly bunch who made such a ruckus that no one could get our attention, except for our Granny. And this is how she did it. She opened up the kitchen door, cupped her hands around her lips, and hollered this at the top of her lungs:

“KICK-ta-bill-icky/ALL-uh-guh-LOCK-sta/HUNK-TA-BUNK-TA Boo. Yooooo-Hooooo!” That was her special way of letting us know lunch was ready.

That’s the story of how I learned about Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta. The rest of the story is that our Granny learned it from her great grandmother. So now, it’s at least 200 years old. To this day, nobody knows (or can remember) where it came from, who said it first, or what it really means. It could be Celtic, Welsh or Scottish, because that’s where Granny’s great grandmother lived. Maybe someone made it up. It might even be an African dialect, Chinese, Farsi or Eskimo. Do you know?

Once I heard it I never forgot it, and the same thing might happen to you. Just think, if you learn it and then pass it on to your children’s children, who knows how many birthdays it might celebrate! The End (NOT!).

Katherine is excited about her music being heard on 7522 Radio.
