Bluegrass Unlimited Magazine-
“a force to be reckoned with.”

The Virginia Pilot-
The quintet plays a mostly high-energy, joyful brand of bluegrass, with skill full picking and two and three-part harmonies.

Richmond Times Dispatch-
Give just a casual listen to The Whiskey Rebellion's recently released, self-titled debut album, and you'll be tempted to plug the band into the category reserved for pure bluegrass. While Phillips says bluegrass is the members' common denominator, there's much more to The Whiskey Rebellion than twang and high lonesome.
