Whisky Myers at the Ritz


I have to say I was not really looking forward to this show. What I heard on Spotify was just not doing it for me at all. They came off as a pop rock band. No energy, no power. I stopped listening after 4 songs.

But at the show the music was more energetic. Sounding more like a county/southern rock band. I don’t know what Spotify was feeding me,  maybe all their ballads from 11 years ago?
