Self described as ‘rusted-dirt’, Gooch’s music looks toward the future by fusing a number of different genres–including rock, country, blues, and hip hop–into cohesive and moving songs. From the blues to folk to rock to hip hop to country, Gooch does it all. His passion, love and medicinal usages of music and for conveying his thoughts, feelings, emotions, etc. are portrayed via the genre that’s most appropriate.
Just recently, Gooch was signed to a new label founded by 9-time-Grammy-Award-winning producer Joe ‘the Butcher’ Nicolo. His new album ”Comin’ Home” is currently available for download.
Gooch has appeared on stage with The Allman Brothers, Tedeschi-Trucks Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Zac Brown Band and Robert Randolf.
Ryan Nelson is excited that his music is heard on 7522 Radio.
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.
