Pig and Whiskey Q&A!

In the run up to Pig and Whiskey 2014, Metro Times asked us a few questions about whiskey, music and BBQ. We posted our answers below! Read the full article to see what other the bands have to say!

Lawrence Daversa and Carrie Shepard (the Whiskey Charmers)

What was the first time you drank whiskey like?

Daversa: It was like having vertigo and the flu simultaneously.

Shepard: It was like drinking warm, mellow happiness.

Do you remember the last time you drank whiskey?

Daversa: Yes, it tasted like gasoline.

Shepard: Yes, it was at Third Street Bar (and Dangerously Delicious Pies) the night Doop & the Inside Outlaws played. It was a Jameson’s, neat.

What’s your favorite barbecue joint?

Daversa: Edley’s in Nashville.

Shepard: The Honky Tonk BBQ in Chicago, also one of our favorite places to play.

What’s your favorite whiskey?

Daversa: The one that is farthest away from me.

Shepard: Bushmills.

In your opinion, how do music, whiskey, and barbecue go together?

Daversa: We like to play for people that have eaten a large amount of barbecue and had a lot of whiskey, because that makes us sound better.

Shepard: Well, if you drink some whiskey, have a tasty slab of ribs, listen to music, then have some barbecue brisket and some more whiskey, you can’t really go wrong.

Sandhill Crane Vineyards and Rockford Brewing Company

This Thursday we will be playing at Sandhill Crane Vineyards in Jackson Michigan from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Great food, scenery, and wine delicious enough to convert a whiskey drinker.

Friday we will be playing in Rockford, Michigan at Rockford Brewing Company at their Start of Summer Beer Craft Tent Event. 8:30 to 11pm. Craft beer good enough to convert a wine drinker.

Both nights should be a lot of fun, so come on out and say hello and listen to a few tunes!

Stay gold,
