A rock-in­fused at­ti­tude

Maroochy Weekly - - LIFE -

IN JUST un­der two years, the once whis­pered name Whiskey Busi­ness that cir­cu­lated among fans of the Tam­worth Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in 2016, has turned into a roar.

Pun­ters cu­ri­ous enough to see what all the fuss was about in 2017, walked away talk­ing about the en­er­getic stage pres­ence and “those har­monies”.

The rock-in­fused at­ti­tude in the mu­sic has cer­tainly turned mod­ern day coun­try mu­sic scep­tics into believ­ers, but they still de­liver the tra­di­tional mod­ern coun­try vibe in spades.

Con­sider them an off­spring of Lady An­te­bel­lum, Keith Ur­ban and Gretchen Wil­son.

With a di­verse blend of in­di­vid­ual in­flu­ences, the chem­istry cre­ated, once on stage, spreads in­fec­tiously into a “good kinda crazy” crowd.

Hum­ble off stage, a strong so­cial me­dia fan pres­ence and a de­sire to step up to the next level, Whiskey Busi­ness are be­ing talked about for all the right rea­sons.

Af­ter the suc­cess of their first big TCMF and trip to Tas­ma­nia to head­line the In­door Coun­try Mu­sic Jam­boree, book­ings for awe­some venues such as the Kin­ross Wood­shed in Al­bury and The Pow­er­anch, Trafal­gar in Vic­to­ria, then up to Caloun­dra and the Bal­lina Coun­try Mu­sic Fes­ti­val... but wait, there’s more... and the re­cent re­lease of their de­but ra­dio sin­gle For So Long and Video Clip and EP ex­pected later this year... the next 12 months are ex­pected to be hugely suc­cess­ful for this awe­some band.

A col­lab­o­ra­tion of Anita Tresid­der on lead vo­cals/per­cus­sion, Len­nie Edger­ton on lead gui­tar and vo­cals, Rom­ney Watts on acous­tic gui­tar and vo­cals, Ian Tresid­der on bass gui­tar and now with the fab­u­lous Adam Har­ris (pre­vi­ously of the The Crawford Broth­ers) on drums, is prov­ing to be ex­tremely suc­cess­ful.

At times this band com­bine their voices to bring you three-part har­monies that will put them a notch above the rest in their live per­for­mances.

Whiskey Busi­ness have shared stages with acts such as Cather­ine Britt, The Viper Creek Band, Hur­ri­cane Fall, Ben Ran­som and soon Brook Chiv­ell, The Wolfe Broth­ers and Jas­mine Rae.

Please sup­port live mu­sic and come along for a great night with a great bunch of fun peo­ple.
