Country Rock Band, Whiskey Bent, to Perform in Red Cloud

Country Rock Band, Whiskey Bent, to Perform in Red Cloud

Wednesday, November 4, 2015

(RED CLOUD, NEB.)— Central Nebraska’s country rock band, Whiskey Bent, will make their first appearance at the Red Cloud Opera House on Saturday, November 21 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for this highly-anticipated show are $10 in advance and $15 day of show.

Known for their high-energy shows, tight instrumentals, and Tim Zach’s strong vocals, Whiskey Bent is a five-man country rock band based in central Nebraska. In addition to Zach, Whiskey Bent is made up of Jeff Westwood (guitar), Jeff Wilson (drums), Joe Parr (guitar, mandolin, harmonica) and John Victory (bass). Whiskey Bent writes and performs their own music and covers a variety of top artists that include Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Johnny Cash and more. “Garth Brooks meets Metallica. We’re country with crunch,” explains vocalist Tim Zach. “We like to push the limits with songs and bring a rock attitude to every song we play.”

Whiskey Bent began writing and performing their own songs in 2012, beginning with the debut single “On The River,” which quickly became a top request on local country radio. Whiskey Bent followed up with a second single, “Every Bar’s Got One,” and released four songs on its first EP. In 2013, with its EP gaining momentum and increased radio airplay, Whiskey Bent expanded its fan base by booking shows beyond its central Nebraska roots, playing in surrounding states such as Iowa, South Dakota, and others. The band also increased its national presence, opening and playing alongside artists such as Jake Owen, Jerrod Niemann and The Lost Trailers.
