Atlanta based quintet, The Whiskey Gentry has announced the details for their long awaited debut release "Please Make Welcome." Produced and Engineered by John Keane who's credits include work with R.E.M., Indigo Girls and Widespread Panic amongst others, the 14-track album is a culmination of two years worth of writing and recording. "Please Make Welcome" ably captures their high-energy stage shows- intermixing bluegrass, punk, gospel, country and rock, often within the same song.
Formed in the spring of 2009, The Whiskey Gentry is a band of Atlanta misfits that defy categorization in a saturated music market. From bluegrass to punk to gospel to outlaw country to old-time rock and roll, The Whiskey Gentry combine accomplished musicianship with high-energy stage shows that provide many a night of pickin' and dancin' for the southeast music scene. Having recently been chosen by Creative Loafing Atlanta's Critic's Pick for Best Local Country Act, The Whiskey Gentry have established themselves among the Atlanta music elite, having shared the stage with artists such as: Doc Watson, Old Crow Medicine Show, Rhett Miller of the Old 97s, John Popper, Ed Roland of Collective Soul, Chatham County Line, Slobberbone, and many other national touring acts.
