We have recorded three albums, Proverbs Bi-Polar & The Body Electric (2010), SoulFire Vol. I (2012), and FutureSight (2013). They are all available for download at the major music outlets; itunes, spotify, amazon, rhapsody, etc.
Where and when is your next gig?
We play a free show every Thursday at Tudor Lounge, 335 Franklin St. in downtown Buffalo, and it is always a lot of fun. You can get our full schedule at our website, www.whiskeyreverb.com.
