WHISKEY KISS
Whiskey Kiss is a female fronted Rockabilly band from Phoenix, AZ. Led by husband and wife duo, Niki and Nick White, their music blends swing with traditional rockabilly for a dynamic, danceable sound. They are newcomers to the Phoenix rockabilly scene, but they have already made their mark by playing some of the biggest rockabilly festivals in town and are playing Viva Las Vegas in 2013, the biggest rockabilly festival in the world. Their debut EP is scheduled to come out in February 2013. Wanda Jackson, Imelda May, and Connie Francis are just some of the artists that influence their brand of music.

Voodoo Swing, Nervous Records and Rockhouse Records recording artists is a premiere Rockabilly trio established in 1990. The trio consists of Shorty on lead guitar and vocals, while Leeroy pounds on skin and hollers and Ruth lays down the grooves on bass. They have shared the stage with modern legends such as Big Sandy, The Frantic Flattops, The Paladins, Lee Rocker, Three Blue Teardrops, The Reverend Horton Heat, Russell Scott and his Red Hots, the Dave and Deke Combo, and The Hillbilly Hellcats to name a few. Playing a unique rip-it-up style of Neo-Rockabilly quickly got Voodoo Swing the attention of Nervous Records in London, and they were quickly signed. Voodoo Swing's debut album "We're Usin' Code Names!" came out on Nervous in 1993. It was followed by their second album, "Well, Okay Then!" released on Holland's Rockhouse Records label. Voodoo Swing's music has also been on dozens of Rockabilly compilations, including "American Rumble," and "Only Freeways to Skinner Cat!" The band also provided the soundtrack for the lowrider documentary film "Low and Slow." In 1998, Shorty was voted "Best Electric Guitar Player" in Salt Lake's "City Weekly Magazine" readers poll. In the 90's, Voodoo Swing toured the Western U.S. and played rockabilly festivals around the country. At that time, the band called Salt Lake its home base. While playing a show in Wells, Nevada in the mid-nineties, a little-known gambler and the 4th King of Buthan, Jigme Wangchuck overheard the combo playing over the "ding ding" of the slot machines. The King peered into the concert hall and was mesmerized by what he saw and heard. That night he ordered the band be "relocated" to the home of his throne in Thimphu, Bhutan. Shorty, Leeroy and Ruth were made the courts jesters and were promised freedom after 5000 shows had been played for the King. Early in 2008 Voodoo Swing fulfilled their obligation to the Kings Court and now are back in Arizona playing for the fans they have missed for all these years. Look for Voodoo Swing in a dive bar near you... just NEVER in a casino.
