Whiskey Myers brought everything to a hefty crowd at Houston’s House of Blues on Friday.

The beer, boots, cowboys, cowgirls and of course the whiskey of Whiskey Myers’ performance meshed together to create a magical experience worthy of a Texas night.

The band prepped their chords as Quaker City Nighthawks prepped the crowd that traveled from all over Texas: Midland, Waco, Sealy.

You name it, they were present!

Conceived with Texas genes, Quaker City Nighthawks is not your typical country band.

By combining hard rock n’ roll to ethnic soul and heavy blues, they’ve branded a new generation of Texas music.

Unique branding is something Whiskey Myers has also successfully imprinted in the music scene.

Their outfits, the way they moved, and the vibe they brought to the concrete jungles of Downtown was more than any Houstonian expected from the Southern fella’s heavy country rock.

They performed wearing eclectic uniforms broadcasting a vintage band, straight out of a movie, ready to transport the audience back in time to the rear seat of a Cadillac as they cruised down the road with nothing but their guitars, a couple of coins, and a bottle of Jack.

That was the spirit of Whiskey Myers.

Having recently released their much anticipated album, “Early Morning Shakes,” they took the night by the horns and performed new and classic songs everyone could celebrate to.

“Where The Sun Don’t Shine,” their newest single has received rave reviews and recognition.

Friday night’s delivery of it was received no differently.

The single recently landed them the number one spot on the Texas Regional Radio Report, proving their talent to create honest music.

Shaking their hips, sipping on plastic cups and praying for a warm night was all the devoted army of outspoken fans could do as they caressed their partners to the tunes of “Ballad of a Southern Man,” “Broken Window Serenade” and even “Lonely East TX Nights.”

Except, this night was far from lonely.

The venue was packed with fans standing all over, VIP and second floor seats included.

Everyone was feeling it.

Cody Cannon, the band’s lead singer and principal songwriter, along with the other four band members, authored the feeling that all else disappeared for that night.

All troubles and problems vanished to the Whiskey-lovers that dove head-first into the jams of the band.

Leaving nothing behind, Whiskey Myers brought the show to an end, but not the night. The band had created a night consisting of nothing but the enamored proud crowd, whiskey, a deep passion for their music that was as wide as the state of Texas, and the ever-so-talented, Myers.
