OFF-Country: The Dungarees and Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion
Start the car! Award-winning country group The Dungarees hit the Eddy stage with the smoky true-grit country act Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion.
Music Mile welcomes the CCMAs and Country Music Week with OFF-Country from September 5-7: 3 days, 16 venues and 45+ shows along the Mile, celebrating local and international musicians who are just a little off country. Enjoy blues, roots, bluegrass, rock and more at your fave venues. From humble beginnings in western Canada to international festival stages, award winning country group The Dungarees have taken their unique brand of country – blending the classic twang of a telecaster and infusing it with modern intensity and pop sensibility – and become one of Canada’s fastest rising stars. With multiple CCMA and ACMA nominations between them, James Murdoch (bass/vocals), Robb Angus (guitar/vocals), Kiron Jhass (guitar/vocals) Darrek Anderson (steel guitar) and Ben Shillabeer (drums) have become an undeniable force in country music.
About Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion:
Black Mountain Whiskey Rebellion is a musical collective of peers and long-time music friends (Mitch Merrett, Corbett Frasz, Erik Dylan, Greg Carroll, Mike Little, plus special guests, Clayton Bellamy and more to be named soon) that have come together to create a musical awakening that walks the line of boundless melodic prowess and raw unapologetic grass roots truth. Combining a fascination with the history of the North American moonshiner and love of Southern power chord guitar rock into a collection of fictional smoky backwoods musical tales – the result is an album that looks inward and speaks from the soul with tracks that are dark and brooding, complete with lyrics abundant in grit and uncompromising in their delivery.
To accommodate as many live music fans as possible, we offer both seats and standing room at our shows. Seats are first come, first serve. We recommend arriving early if you’d like to be seated during the performance.
