Beginning in 2011, Whiskey Kill began relentlessly playing New England bars and clubs and amassing a passionate fan base. The band debuted its initial effort, Pissed Off Betty to highly favorable reviews. It was voted in the top twelve albums for 2012 in Spotlight Magazine and in the top ten in The Wire. After relocating to Somerville in early 2012 and adding new personnel, the band's sound began transitioning from a traditional country feel to a more rockabilly perspective. 2012 found the band touring the summer New England hot rod car show circuit as well as prominent club gigs opening for national artists such as Reverend Horton Heat, Bloodshot Bill, and Three Bad Jacks.
2013 promises to be a bright year for the band with the upcoming release of their second studio recording, tentatively entitled "Wrecker", as well as featured performances at Boston's World of Wheels car show, Milltown, and the New England Shake-Up.
Whiskey Kill consists of Tom Ferry (vocals, guitar), John Cortes (guitar, vocals), Jose Solorzano (upright bass) and Mike Demers (drums).
The Red Penny's
Hailing from Providence, RI, The Red Pennys blend a mix of old country, honky tonk and roadhouse rhythm and riffs to form a sound that makes dancing and foot stomping possible for even the most awkward of folks in this great land of ours. Gregg Figliozzi guitar and vocals; Bob Mac upright bass and hand-shakin' duties; Russ Dawley drums, vocals and crazy gadgets. We play primarily in the New England region but will always be up for some extended travel points of south and west.
