DUBUQUE, IOWA– The new bad boys of country music, Whiskey Myers, bring their riff-heavy blend of Southern rock and gritty country to Mississippi Moon Bar
on Friday, July 12.
Genre-bending band Whiskey Myers have played nearly 2,000 live shows since their emergence in 2008 and have sold out more than 115 headlining shows in the last 15 months alone. As Esquire proclaims, "Whiskey Myers is the real damn deal." USA Today compared the band led by front man Cody Cannon to the Allman Brothers Band and Led Zeppelin, with Rolling Stone noting "it's the seminal combination of twang and crunchy rock & roll guitars that hits a perfect sweet spot."
Their most recent album, Mud, reached No. 1 on the iTunes country chart with single "Stone" hitting Top 10 All Genre, and they are currently in the studio working on their self-produced fifth studio album expected in early 2019. Whiskey Myers was featured in Paramount Network's new Kevin Costner hit show "Yellowstone" with synced songs throughout the season as well as an appearance by the band in episode four as part of the storyline.
Showtime is at 8 p.m. with ticket prices starting at $25, plus tax and convenience fees. Tickets go on-sale April 20 at 10 a.m. at www.MoonBarRocks.com
