Bring a blanket or a lawn chair and enjoy an hour of music by local alt country trio.
As one of Central Oregon's longest-gigging bands, Sweet Whiskey Lips plays alt-country music with a rock sensibility, putting their own spin on songs you thought you knew. Elise Michaels tears it up on vocals & guitar, Mark Gillem adds tasty licks with pedal steel, dobro, and mandolin, Chris Whaley thumps that bass, and Steve Williams gives a kick on percussion. If you aren't enthralled with their version of Lucinda Williams' Can't Let Go
, singing along to a Dylan tune, or crying in your beer after Slaid Cleaves' Broke Down
, then you aren't there. Come for one of the best set lists you'll hear from any band - originals, blues, covers - done with a twist like only Sweet Whiskey Lips can lay it out.
