A diverse group of masterfully talented musicians who stand out like a sore thumb from the traditional bluegrass world, WHISKEY SHIVERS have made a name for themselves with a genre-pushing sound that the Washington Post called “Apocalyptic Americana”. Frontman and fiddle master Bobby Fitzgerald’s exuberance is contagious, and it bleeds through… crowds notice this lot. Fitzgerald says “Whiskey Shivers isn’t just the five of us on stage, it’s everybody in the room.”
The band members also landed a role in the film Pitch Perfect 3 which hit cinemas in December 2017, appearing both in acting and musical roles, alongside a returning cast that included Anna Kendrick, Hailee Steinfeld and Rebel Wilson. The big screen is the perfect place for Whiskey Shivers – an eclectic, charismatic gang of characters, they had their first major breakout when their horror-movie influenced music video went viral.
