The Whiskey Bent Valley Boys recently took the Blue Plate stage and we’re still trying to catch our breath! Their website says that these boys from Peewee Valley, Kentucky will deliver their take on old-time tunes with an intensity that would knock the socks right off of their forefathers feet. After hearing them, that sounds like a pretty good description, and we think you’ll agree.
The band is made up of J.R. McFinnigan on fiddle and vocals, Col. Mason Dixon (“Yes, that’s my real name”) on banjo, and Leroy Jones on the doghouse bass. They’ve got a brand new CD called “On The Fly”, and you can learn even more about the Whiskey Bent Valley Boys at http://whiskeybentvalley.tumblr.com/
Since whiskey is a part of the band’s name, here’s a tune called “Drink Up That Whiskey”.
