Roots-based band from Michigan incorporates elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, country, blues, and jazz into their lyric-driven songs.http://www.granadatheater.com/event/1464909/
"Their songs are full of rich, rural details: frozen lakes, swaying trees, highway lights glowing in the deep night."
- Rolling Stone
"Frontier Ruckus brings a contemporary angle to its music—eschewing traditional tales of trains, whiskey, and rambling for reflections on suburbia, family and 'life on the edge of the interstate.'"
"...one of the most interesting bands currently doing business in the Midwest."
"...a level of top-notch songwriting most groups never attain on a greatest hits compilation."
"...piercingly sincere portraits of romance and youth, ripe with close harmonies and meditations on complicated, tender love."
"...with lyrics as dense as a Faulkner novel and intricate arrangements that transform the typical Americana twang and faded pastoral preconceptions of folk/pop into something surreal and yet familiar."
- Paste Magazine
Their music is the sound of a union meeting at its drunkest, of a last-resort robbery gone awry, of mice and men and the lengths they'll go to forget about their troubles. From catchy singalongs to moody shuffles, Whiskey Folk Rambler's sound takes American roots music down a road less traveled, where even the Devil might be waiting to raise a toast. ~ Steve Steward
