Country music is the lifeblood of Whiskey Riff, and we pride ourselves on standing firmly in the corner of the independent artists, and those few in the mainstream still doing it the right way. Whether it’s Waylon, Willie and legends of the past, or superstars in the making like Zach Bryan, our finger is always on the pulse of true country music. From Texas to Tennessee, Appalachia to Bakersfield, Whiskey Riff is THE unapologetic voice of the country music fan.
A RIFF on what makes the great outdoors…great.
“Country” is more than just a steel guitar. It’s a lifestyle. A mindset. A cold beer, hot grill and the great outdoors. A lifestyle so perfectly captured by the country greats of yesterday, but still alive and well today in artists who truly get it.
Whiskey Riff is that lifestyle.
Say goodbye to boredom.
The best playlists in country music…period.
On ‘Whiskey Riff Raff,’ Steve Gazibara and Wes Langeler give an unfiltered and unapologetic take on country music, life, and all the craziness that comes with it. Laugh with us. Rant with us. Drink with us.
Colter Wall is a class act.
It’s no secret that the man is beloved in country music despite remaining independent and living the true cowboy life up in Canada. He recently sold out back to back nights at Mission Ballroom in Denver, Colorado… a room that’s holds about 4,000 fans per night.
So needless to say, if you haven’t seen him live, I highly suggest you do so.
I have seen both Koe Wetzel and Whiskey Myers headline shows at this venue and they put on great, entertaining shows that are full productions. Shows that may have even included fire a time or two…
In contrast though, Colter Wall and his band to took up about half the stage with limited lights and production and the audience was just as captivated. Vincent Neil Emerson was the opener, which made it one of the most minimalistic, but amazing shows I’ve had the honor of seeing.
During the show, Colter Wall confirmed there is in fact a new record on the way and played some unreleased tunes from it:
My personal favorite of the night was a cover of Hoyt Axton’s “Evangelina” that might actually make the new album.
Honestly, I don’t think Colter Wall can sing a bad song with his deep, gritty voice.
And after having the opportunity to meet and talk with him briefly, I’m an even bigger fan because he is so kind and humble, as well as being an exceptional talent.
