    Whiskey Treats at Bushwacker's Saloon. Billy Sidwell is in town from Nashville! The Whiskey Treats have a rebellious sound with undeniable passion and energy; imagine Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphy’s without the Celtic. Rather than conform to industry standards or a specific genre, they draw a parallel between Americana/bluegrass and punk rock with some outlaw country. “Our fans relate to us because we don’t fit into specific mold and neither do they. When people ask what kind of music we play I always say it’s a high-energy infusion of bluegrass, punk, folk, and rock.” Each band member comes from completely different musical backgrounds; by blending their unique experiences the Whiskey Treats have created a distinctive sound. You can hear the traditional influences in the banjo, mandolin and upright bass but there is no denying the disruptive and spirited influences of punk rock. Formed in 2012, The Whiskey Treats strive to elevate the mood of the listener with their music and engaging performance. “We play raucous high-energy shows because we thrive on getting the crowd ramped up, you can just feel the energy of the crowd skyrocket once we take the stage. It’s the kind of music you listen to when you want to go out with your mates, drink pints at the bar and get a little rowdy.” At a Whiskey Treats show you can expect lively danceable songs and fast on the feet crowd interaction. The band has fun on stage and it is contagious, audiences love the music and connect with them at a primal level. Whiskey Treats shows are a memorable experience for everyone. After a move to Denver, CO in early 2014, the Whiskey Treats are now back in action. With several great Denver metro shows under their belt, they are looking to bring their unique sound and show to venues all across Colorado.
