No stranger to Aggieland, Whiskey Myers is back to headline a show at Hurricane Harry’s on Friday, Sept. 1. The Drugstore Gypsies will also be performing.
Whiskey Myers has history. The band consists of Cody Cannon on lead vocals and guitar, Cody Tate and John Jeffers on guitars, Gary Brown on bass, and Jeff Hogg on drums. They also added fiddler/keyboard player Jon Knudson and percussionist Tony Kent, who are both now full-time members.
“They bring a great energy, and I think it’s really helped our sound and makes the band more versatile,” explains Cannon. “There’s less room onstage now, but sometimes a family grows.”
From growing up together in Palestine, TX, to countless hours on the road performing, this band knows each other. That shows up in their music.
“Staying true to ourselves and to our music has gotten us to the point we’re at,” guitarist John Jeffers said. “We really want to continue on that same track.”
They seem to be on the right path. Their latest release, “Mud,” has seen its fair share of acclaim, and Whiskey Myers continues to move to the top of the list when it comes to Southern Rock. The quality of their sound shows when you look at who they have been sharing the stage with; Lynyrd Skynyrd, Hank Williams Jr., Jamey Johnson, and the list goes on.
If you are looking for good southern rock with a heavy nod to their Texas roots, these guys have you covered.
Opening up for Whiskey Myers will be The Drugstore Gypsies. Named one of the “10 new country artists you need to know,” by Rolling Stone, The Drugstore Gypsies are quickly catching the attention of the Texas music scene.
You can catch Whiskey Myers and The Drugstore Gypsies at Hurricane Harry’s on Sept. 1. Doors open at 9pm. Tickets are available at Aggieland Outfitters (University location only), Cavender’s Boot City, or online at harrys.bcsclubs.com
