The Whiskey Geese
The Whiskey Geese are a high-flying acoustic power duo. Dane Anderson and Tyler Wayne Drabick – both on acoustic guitars, foot percussion, and vocals – play crisply-executed, widely influenced, counterpart-laden, feel-great music. “Aside from the phenomenal and meticulous guitar playing, both of these young men have stellar vocal ability and the harmonies are mesmerizing! You should put The Whiskey Geese on your must see list and soon!” – Sky King, Northcountry News
