Americana Band Whiskey Belles Coming to the Schauer Center!
March 11, 2014—Hartford, WI—The all-female traditional country and Americana trio Whiskey Belles is coming to the Schauer Arts & Activities Center as a part of The Booster Cabaret Series on Friday, April 11, 2014 at 8:00 pm. With personalities as big as the Texan skyline, the Whiskey Belles captivate audiences with their take on classic and obscure vintage-country, Americana, fold-revival, and roots-country tunes.
Based out of Milwaukee, the Whiskey Belles began their musical shenanigans in May of 2011. By July of the next year, they released their debut album Whiskey Woman, which was named one of the 10 best local albums of 2012 by Milwaukee Magazine. A second album followed at the end of 2013, with a raucous Christmas record titled Nothin’ Says Christmas Like Whiskey. Having gained recognition for their ability to blend pitch-perfect harmonies with guitar, bass, fiddle, and violin, the Whiskey Belles are two-time winners of the Wisconsin Area Music Industry’s Americana/Bluegrass Artist of the Year . In addition to working on their most recent album, the Whiskey Belles have kept busy with over 70 performances in 2013 and live appearances on WMSE 91.7 FM’s Chicken Shack program, a radio show dedicated to great country music.
