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.

Jubilant Bridge is proud to announce the release of their new recording,  A Bell A Bird A Star, a collection of songs for the Christmas season. It is very much a listening experience, filled with beautiful songs not often heard except by choral ensembles. But here, the songs are arranged by the duo for two voices, guitar, dulcimer and feature the intricate harmonies and arrangements the duo is known for.

The CD begins with Carol Van Alstine’s original, A Bell A Bird A Star, which she wrote for the project. But when she opened it, she was gifted with another song, My Mother Gave the World to Me, the closing track.
Three original instrumentals, composed by Willie Jaeger, grace the collection: Winterlude, Dancing Foxes Drifting Snow, and Nighthawks Grace the Frozen Moon.

The heart of the CD consists of songs by 20th-century composers, traditional carols in several languages and two Latin pieces. Three songs based on medieval texts grace the recording: Gustav Holst’s Lullay My
Liking, Boris Ord’s Adam Lay Ybounden, and Benjamin Britten’s Balulalow. Personent Hodie and Gaudete, from the 1582 songbook Piae Cantiones, also have medieval origins. Sydney Carter’s Every Star Shall Sing a Carol is a 20th-century song for the earth and the cosmos.

And there are many carols from around the world: the Spanish lullaby, A La Nanita Nana; the beautiful French carol, Quelle Est Cette Odeur Agreable; the Russian, Carol of the Russian Children; the traditional
Appalachian, The World Is Old; and English favorites, The Holly and The Ivy, Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day, and Gloucestershire Wassail.

Jubilant Bridge has five previous recordings. In their last CD, Power Lines, which featured their compelling award-winning original songs as well as their unique take on songs from favorite songwriters,Victory Music Review found “an amazing level of melodic richness and complex songwriting”, the songs “musical and lyrical tapestries that can be surprisingly deep and poetic.”

Carol received a BMI Songwriter Award for the title track, and the duo was a two-time Finalist for Best Group/Duo in the International Acoustic Music Awards for three songs from the CD.

Jubiant Bridge is excited that their music is heard on 7522 Beach Mountain Radio.
