Vancouver, BC, roots based genre-benders, The Bottom Shelf Bourbon Trio, are returning to Edmonton on July 14, 2016, as part of their Already Gone album release tour. Set for release July 7, 2016, the album contains 10 tracks of deep-blues, bluegrass, country and swing alchemy; singing on such universal themes as substance abuse and infidelity, of blue collar angst and unrequited love, of leaving forever and coming back again. They draw influence from both traditional and contemporary roots music while telling tales from rural upbringings and their current urban settings.
The Misery Mountain Boys are an acoustic ensemble, playing a variety of eclectic roots music. With strong musicianship, and drawing on a diverse influence from swing, bluegrass, gypsy jazz, reggae, and funk, the groups performance is high-energy and interactive, playful yet unpredictable.
The roots of the Misery Mountain Boys lie on the banks of the mighty Peace River, in small-town Northern Alberta where guitarist Steve Gevenich and mandolinist Dom Golec grew up sharing and creating music together, discovering their own sound and style for over a decade. Since 2011 the group has been based out of Edmonton, Alberta and has continuously evolved through their passion for playing music together. Their second EP ‘Long Gone Cat Daddy’ was released in December 2015 and puts a unique emphases on acoustic rhythm and groove
