The Whiskey Treaty Roadshow headlined the final 2015 Shire City Sessions show of the year in Pittsfield, MA, and has recently debuted their first live album entitled, The Heart of the Run. An independently released album, the title speaks to the groups song writing and affinity for the beverage, and the way in which whiskey and music brings people together in harmony and good times.

From his training at NYC’s Scratch DJ Academy, to his current position as Special Events DJ for Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, his seamless transitions and knack for crowd-reading keep dancefloors moving all night long. BFG combines an old-school aesthetic with new-jack beats for a seamless, genre-hopping approach to dance music.

Voyage takes you back to the ’80’s era when the timeless music of Journey ruled the airwaves. The talent of these five guys together has brought the meaning of tribute to a whole new level. Playing all the hits, including: “Don’t Stop Believin,'” “Separate Ways,” “Faithfully,” “Anyway You Want It,” and more!

On stage, these four friends achieve peaks of happiness that they eagerly share with their audiences. Winning critical acclaim and audience adoration across the country, the quartet has earned several prestigious awards including two Juno’s and a Canadian Folk Music Award. The group has a rich and varied instrumentation, well-polished musical arrangements, and wonderful vocals. They have collaborated and performed with Harry Manx, Väsen, The Chieftains, Breton musical pioneer Yann-Fañch Kemener, Québecois roots legend and master storyteller Michel Faubert, hip Scottish folk band Breabach, and the trans-Mediterranean ensemble Constantinople. The group’s current line-up consists of singers / multi-instrumentalists Nicolas Boulerice, Simon Beaudry, Olivier Demers and Réjean Brunet. “Featuring button accordion, guitar and fiddle, the band’s sound is defined by the hurdy-gurdy, which adds an earthy, rough-hewn flavor to even the most buoyant dance tunes.” –Boston Herald
