Whisky Hollow is credited with being one of the first Canadian Country Rock band’s and one of the pioneers in this movement.
During their ten-year history, from the mid 1970’s to the mid 1980’s, they had many accomplishments.
The band had 14 singles released on the charts in Canada, some US markets, Europe and South Africa. They also had three CD albums to their credit and have written hundreds of songs.
Whisky Hollow appeared on many TV shows across Canada and were the house band and co-hosts of the Lively Country TV series, which was syndicated across Canada and 127 markets around the world for three years and an additional two years of reruns.
They were featured in many press articles all across Canada during their career and headlined many concerts and tours and appeared with many major US name acts in concert.
In 1980 and 1981 the band was nominated at the Canadian Country Awards as Outstanding Performing group of the year.
Disbanded in 1984 and reformed a year later to produce their own short-lived TV series Rock Country, Whisky Hollow became the first Canadian country band to make their own music videos.
The band was reformed in 2006 to play a Reunion concert, which was intended to be a “one time only performance”. The concert sold out and before the performance started, the Mayor, the Member of Parliament, and the Provincial Member of Parliament, all of who presented the band with citations, recognized Whisky Hollow for their local, national and international impact on the music scene.
The evening was also the subject of music-documentary DVD entitled “Smokin’ Again”, which was released in May of 2007. Their fourth CD, “Best of Whisky Hollow” was also released.
After much urging by friends and fans the group made the decision to stay together as a seven-piece band featuring all original members. All members are lead vocalists and five are songwriters. Whisky Hollow’s stage show features their musical expertise, high energy and maintains their impressive harmonies.
Whisky Hollow is currently based in Ontario and Michigan and is performing for their ever-growing legion of fans. They are also working on a new CD release.
