Lead Vocals, Guitars, Banjo (Nimrod)
I’ll share a little about myself then give a little insight into this whiskey derived circus….. I joined up with these gents after touring the west coast and returning to the Buckeye state. My two favorite artists are Eddie Van Halen and Chris Stapleton. Quite a range in between but you get the picture. My good friends and I love to throw down a good party with great people and music after a long week of hard work. We hope you will join us and cut loose.
Let’s get this party started!!!
Meet The Band
Lead Guitar and Vocals (and purveyor of fine whiskeys)
Hitting the ground running straight out of military service; Tom toured with metal bands up and down the west coast (back when he could grow hair). Since then he has pursued excellence in many bands playing jazz fusion and rock & roll with influences from artists such as Steve Morse, Joe Satriani, and Joe Perry. Whiskey Would has expanded his horizons by tapping into his roots growing up on the mountain tops of the Blue Ridge Parkway, Country and Blues come naturally.
When that Les Paul comes out of the case, expect the party to kick up to 11. Let's Ride!!!
Bass/Vocals (mas Tequila)
Deep Purple’s Machine Head and The Who’s Quadrophenia ….two albums that led Ian to the bass and always wanting to be not only the backbone of a band but also a lead voice in the instrumentation of a band. Who better to teach me than Roger Glover and John Entwistle. Ian has been doing studio work and live performances all across the US from Boston to Memphis from Atlanta to Columbus while attending Berklee College of Music in between.
Now teaming up with Whiskey Would.
Why, you may ask….because this group loves to have a good time and play good music; country, rock, blues and everything in between. We are having fun and we are going to make sure you, the audience, and our fans, have fun too! Can’t wait to see you at a show, come up and say hey and let us know what is going to keep bringing you back to see us.
Harmonica and Shotglass
Mark's passion for music is only rivaled by his passion for being in the country riding his Harley. His harp will touch your soul with blues, dancin' with Rock n Roll, and give you boot scootin' boogies. Mark's influences range from Sonny Boy Williamson to James Cotton but has never left his Rock N Roll drive. It's not hard to find Mark in a local pub sitting in with other musicians adding his back roads influence.
Ty (Pretty Boy) Thomas
We were told by several ladies that Ty is the master of Rhythm….. we’re glad we took their word for it. Influenced by Neal Peart, Kenny Aronoff, and Pappy VanWinkle, Ty lays down the Whiskey Would (groove), and the party’s on!!! His Rock, Country, Blues, and Jazz influences was a perfect fit for this band of bourbon enthusiasts.
Why Be Normal???
