“This is the band Nickelback could never quite be, they've got the hits SOil can't quite recapture and they've got the catchy sensibilities that Black Label Society can never achieve but, ultimately, Whiskey Six are their own band with their own sound.”
"It’s impossible to pick just one adjective to describe watching Dave Lansing play guitar….mesmerizing, exciting, energizing, sexy, breathtaking, awe-inspiring, entertaining….I could go on all day. I don’t even feel the least bit bad about being a little star-struck by him, because I know plenty of local musicians who have a major man-crush on him too. His straight up, in your face, “this is me, take it or leave it” style and attitude will keep fans coming back for more for as long as he keeps playing…
“A Quartet of hellraisers from Phoenix, AZ who combine metal and rock blues together producing a sound and style that is very Southern indeed. It hits white hot from the opening Hetfield soundalike in the vocals dept ‘Watch It All Burn’ that also has a Pantera feel about it not to mention hitting humour smuttyness with the delta meets rock-out ‘Long Necks (And Open Legs)’. Elsewhere there’s the cookin’ stomping ‘You Disease’ that has some vibrant backing vocals and guitar-work; a beautiful ballad in ‘Heartache’; the slidin’ riffed ‘Ommission’ before finishing off with a bang-on cover of ZZ Top’s ‘Heard It On The X’. This is what would happen if members of Black Stone Cherry, Pantera, Scattered Hamlet and Metallica had a few beers and jammed out at a local party. These guys are pure heavy Dixie brilliance.”
“As soon as Yayo finished its "I Want You to Hate Me" (which led one young woman in the audience to exult, "I love to hate you!") with a final, triumphant textbook rock ending -- and of course it was -- lights came up on the stage next door, and Whiskey Six, a clearly hard-living quartet from Phoenix, started its set, completing a tableau that might have been Portrait of Dorian Gray, might have been cautionary tale to Yayo, but was delicious all the same.”
“American Grit is 12 songs deep and every single one of them is amazing. I honestly don’t know if I’ve ever heard an Arizona based band put out an album that was this well written. I’m not sure I’m describing it right when I say that it sounds like country rock, with pop sensibility that is like no other. There are lots of heavy, groove-laden riffs to songs like “Watch It All Burn”, “Double Barrel Man”, “Long Necks (And Open Legs)”, and “As One” just to name a few.”
“With American Grit, Whiskey Six delivers some entertaining hard rock groove, with a more than a little blues and country flair.”
"Great energy...excellent musicianship...lots of potential."
"Whiskey Six is an organic, in-your-face, rock n' roll guilty pleasure. They are a tasteful blend of classic rock riffs and unique lyrics. Whiskey Six's powerful vocals are reminiscent of an old school blues rock jam session that goes hand in hand with a good shot of whiskey. Whiskey Six is geniuine music; they are simply an amazing rock band who rock the way it should be done!
