About 15 years ago in a sleepy, backwater town tucked into the foothills of the Pacific Northwest, 11 year-old Jack Mattingly had an epiphany… he would be a musician. Inspired by the members of a rock band brought in as part of “career day” at Jack’s school, he began his journey.
Today, Whiskey Fever are the realization of that goal. A four piece Rock/Acoustic/Hillbilly band that include, not only the former fourth grader who found is calling in music, but in a unique twist of fate, one of the original members of the band that inspired him to follow his dream.
Jack’s songwriting and story-telling is the perfect blend of heart, smarts, and humor. His musicianship, whether on guitar, banjo, ukelele, harmonica or even washboard is confident and clean. Combined with the mellow undertones of the bluegrass, rock, and folk that inspired him along the way, the music is compelling, honest, and most of all, engaging.
While Jack has seen terrific response to his solo music over the years, the addition of Andy Brown on drums, Dylan Dalgarn on bass, and Mike Lamb on electric guitar have taken the project to the next level. Since becoming Whiskey Fever, the band has continued to develop a significant following. Their live performances are something akin to an evening front porch jam session- no pretense, no pressure- just a good time gathering with a great group of friends; telling stories, having fun, and sharing a jug. The band eagerly plays around the northwest part of the country, and even traveled to Anaheim, CA to play the NAMM Show when invited last year.
In the Spring of 2015 they released the follow-up to their 2013 “Pop’s Garage” EP- this time a full-length album titled: "Gonna Wake Up This Whole Town". You can find more info, photos, and audio at www.reverbnation.com/whiskeyfever.
