Whiskey-6 is the fastest emerging country-rock act in New England!
Nominated and won 2019-2020 New England Country Music: Local Country Group of the Year
The band is fronted by Samantha Rae, a beautiful and energetic small town country spitfire who packs both a punch and a sultry country tone. When Samantha isn’t on stage or songwriting with her bandmates, she’s at her stable raising and training horses, or traveling across the country at national horse shows. You immediately understand what Samantha is all about when you see her ride her horse “Superman” bare back at full clip. She’s a fierce and fearless competitor on and off the stage with a warm heart, a wide smile, and a genuine interest in people that can instantly lift a spirit and captivate an entire arena.
Now add the boys, Whiskey-6, a talented bunch of pro-caliber entertainers disguised as fun loving rowdy ranch hands. Don’t be fooled by the brawny plaid shirts and worn-out blue jeans, several of these guys are formally trained and accomplished musicians who developed their craft through decades of hard work in the Boston music scene.
Whiskey-6 delivers banjo, mandolin, pedal steel, country fiddle, and electric & acoustic guitars with all the vibe of the traditional country genre and add to that energetic lead vocal performances, beautifully blended harmonies, and you’ll definitely feel the heart pounding rock & roll grit at the core.
At a live show, you’ll recognize the musical influences spanning country, folk, rhythm & blues, jazz, and rock. There’s an energy that their loyal followers, and many first time fans, describe as “lightning in a bottle” but it’s probably best described by their tagline #COUNTRYTHATROCKS
