“At the lonesome crossroads where country and metal intersect, stand two swaggering badasses holding acoustic guitars. They’re not interested in your soul they have plenty of soul already.” ~ Kevin Kurtain
Cult favorites WhiskeyDick blow minds with a double barrel blast of dreadnaught shredding and hillbilly bellowing that makes you want to knock back a shot, stand up tall, and holler “Oh-Hell-YeeHaw!”
The Fort Worth duo carry on the Texas traditions of super-powered guitar slinging and clever songwriting that make lone star music a worldwide curiosity, except Reverend Johnson will remind you more of Dimebag Darrell than Billy Gibbons and Fritz remains more lyrically akin to David Allen Coe than Robert Earl Keen.
WhiskeyDick’s live show is a true spectacle: two giant, tattooed, mean-looking dudes saunter on stage and sit down on 2 chairs, then pick up acoustic guitars and proceed to amaze everyone by generating more power than a full band by means of Fritz’s deep, rich vocals, Johnson’s unapproachable acoustic guitar heroics, and their triumphant songwriting.
“We’re just a train robbin’, gun totin’, dope smokin’, guitar pickin’ muthafuckin’ good time band. Taking hillbilly music and spreading it across the land.”
Their lyrics are their lives. With continuously touring in the States and Overseas, including being part of the “Crusty Punk Blues Band” Black Eyed Vermillion (8 Years), this duo plays over 200 shows year, bringing their country-fried, no-collar sensibilities to small towns and big cities all over the World and are building faithful followers everywhere.

Biram, Pentagram, Foghat, Joe Buck Yourself, Antiseen, Wayne “The Train” Hancock, Honky, Bob Wayne, Bob Log III, Nashville Pussy, Reverend Horton Heat, Jayke Orivs, Goddamn Gallows, Weed Eater, Peter Pan Speedrock, .357 String Band, Nick Oliveri, Wino, Spirt Caravan, The King DMC and The Supersuckers.
