Currently booking for 2016 & 2017
Brave New Voice is pleased to offer The Whiskey Shambles’s blues stage show: The Lords of Reverb Blues Revival. Contact us today if you have questions about or would like to book The Shambles’ Lords of Reverb show.
They have been described as, “R.L. Burnside and Black Sabbath jamming with Nina Simone in a burned-out rum shack, using opium for incense.”
FRESH TAKE ON THE BLUES
For blues festivals, The Whiskey Shambles and their “Lords of Reverb Blues Revival” are a fresh alternative to usual, traditional blues acts. The band appeals to younger audiences and fans of The Black Keys, The White Stripes, and other modern blues and blues-rock acts. Whether they’re doing their acoustic or electric set (either are available for your needs), or a combination of both, they put on a high-energy show with a very big finale. This show is presented in the “tent-revival” style, and features a tribute to the legends of north Mississippi hill country blues and delta performers, as well as many of The Shambles’ critically-acclaimed blues originals. Booking now for festivals and events after April 2016.

On the move / on their way up
The Whiskey Shambles are based in Cincinnati, OH. They regularly do short-run tours in the Midwest and the South, as well as occasional longer tours through the US and Canada. They won the 2014 Northeast Ohio Blues Challenge, and represented Northeast Ohio at the 2015 International Blues Challenge in Memphis. The band headlined two showcases at the 2015 Millennium Music Conference near Philadelphia, and were invited to showcase at the 2015 Singer-Songwriter of Cape May conference in southern New Jersey, and the 2015 NXNE conference in Toronto. In addition to winning the 2016 & 2015 Cincinnati Entertainment Award for Best Blues Act (for which they were also nominated in 2014), they were also nominated for Best Live Act in 2016, as well as CityBeat magazine’s Best of Cincinnati (Best Original Band) in 2016, 2015, & 2014 and several of their song releases have earned critical acclaim.
Acoustic / Small Venue Shows
The Shambles also put on a raucous acoustic show, based on venue/event requirements/requests. Nathan Singer’s solo album, “On Through the Night,” gives a good example of the style of the band’s acoustic performances.
The Whiskey Shambles are getting regular airplay on college and AAA radio stations with several songs from their second live EP, “Stumbling Toward Beale Street,” and their first LP “Loose Change for a Broken Man,” which was named #23 of the Top 89 Albums of 2014 by WNKU. Their music is available for streaming on Spotify, last.fm, rdio, Xbox Music, and more, as well as for purchase on iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and more. The Shambles are currently finishing up their second full-length album, to be released in the summer of 2016.
The Whiskey Shambles deliver a unique sound that will set your festival/event apart and help you reach new, younger audiences. 2015 travel and tour dates are filling up fast (not all bookings are on the website yet), so book now.
