Whiskey Fever
Whiskey Fever
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 is the realization of that goal. A Rock/Acoustic/Hillbilly quartet 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, ukulele, 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 Dennis Dorgan 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.

Their debut EP “Pop’s Garage” was released in early 2013, and their debut LP "Gonna Wake Up This Whole Town" was released in 2015 to very positive reviews. You can find more info, photos, and audio at www.reverbnation.com/whiskeyfever or Facebook, or drop them a line at whiskeyfeverband@gmail.com
