7 PM Whiskey Dawn – Granite Construction Company Grandstand Stage
Whiskey Dawn is California’s hottest country band. With the release of their first original album, Dear Nashville, Whiskey Dawn’s popularity has sky-rocketed to unimagined heights. Regularly featured on 101.9 the Wolf in Sacramento, Whiskey Dawn’s music has been heard on multiple country stations up and down the State of California. They’ve performed with several Nashville acts including Eric Church, Luke Bryan, Bucky Covington, Lady Antebellum, Julianne Hough, and more. Quickly becoming the favorite band at each new venue, Whiskey Dawn will perform over 100 high-octane shows in 2009-2010, captivating audiences with precision harmonies and dynamic instrumentation.
Though Whiskey Dawn is in just their third year of performing, the foundation for their success started over a decade ago. Troy, Jeremy, and Mike began singing and playing music together in high school. It only took them 10 years to realize how special it was to have three uniquely talented friends – and all with a passion for music. But, it wasn’t until joining forces with journeymen musicians Steve Mendiola, Dave Corina, and Steve Cortez that Whiskey Dawn was formed. As the backbone of Whiskey Dawn, Dave and “Los Dos Stevos,” combine to add immeasurable experience and talent to the lineup.
Known for their inspiring original music, tight, high-energy performances, and passionate vocals, Whiskey Dawn is THE band to watch on the California scene. http://whiskeydawn.com/
