Whiskey RiverFor over three decades, Whiskey River's musicians have thrilled audiences all over America playing the music of the legendary southern-rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd. Re-creating the image and the music of the southern rock band that took the world by storm in the "1970's. Whiskey River not only plays Lynyrd Skynyrd, they personify the group onstage. Through their serious and tireless commttment to the original Ronnie VanZandt era Lynyrd Skynyrd, they have deconstructed and reconstructed every detail of every part of every song from the original bands recordings. Their nearly three decade history of phenominal performances has earned them the title: "America's #1 Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute Band". Their show is primarily a re-presentation of the multi-platinum album "One More From The Road" and "Freebird The Movie" Thier show is also augmented by several classics from the original band's last album "Street Survivors". Whiskey River's Tribute brings the audience back in time thirty-five years as they blaze through Skynyrd classics like Sweet Home Alabama, Gimme Three Steps, The Breeze, That Smell, What's Your Name, Saturday Night Special and many more, plus their phenomenal note-for-note version of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Live" guitar opus Freebird.

One of the most amazing aspects of Whiskey River's tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd is that their fan base literally runs from seven to seventy years old! Whiskey River has performed countless fairs, festivals, casinos, clubs, municipal "Music in the Parks Series" throughout the region including Spokane Interstate Fair, , Darrington Classic Rock Festival, the White River Amphitheater, Key Arena @ Seattle Center, Bite of Seattle, the Emerald Queen, Tulalip, 7 Cedars, Red Wind and Skagit Casinos, the Jackson Prairie Speedway, the Sturgis Black Hills Rally in Sturgis, SD, "Rockin' The Rivers" in Three Forks, MT, and many many more.

"I thank you for keeping the original spirit and music of Ronnie VanZant's Lynyrd Skynyrd alive for all these years" Artimus Pyle: Drummer - Lynyrd Skynyrd


I thought I had a good preview of your show after watching your video, but nothing compares to seeing you live! You guys are HOT! I'll definitely be seeing you again." Vic-the-Dude: Disc-jockey KZOK 102.5 FM


On behalf of everyone at KISM I would like to thank you for the FANTASTIC show you gave us at the 92 Days of Summer Party. We could not have asked for better entertainment - you blew us (and the audience) clean away! Again, thank you very much. You were superb!" Carol Dooley: Program Director KISM 92.9 FM.


"They play the entire Lynyrd Skynyrd repertoire in their tribute to the Southern Rock Band.... Although musicianship is the most important part of any real band, image plays an important part as well, and they both dress and act the part." Gig Magazine - November, 1998

Out of respect for our fans and the founder's countless contributions to the band, the remaining members decided to continue the music but change the name to Whiskey River. Whiskey Creek's exceptional and original lead-singer/frontman Darren Wichers has returned. With Darren and national recording artist Donny Paycheck on drums, our tradition as America's # 1 Lynyrd Skynyrd Tribute & Classic Good Time Rock & Roll Band continues stronger than ever. Our new website is: We have sister sites on Facebook and Myspace. The current web address locations for, Whiskey Creek My Space and the Facebook pages are automatically re-directed to our new websites as the "Creek" turns into a "River" and flows into the future.

Thank you Terry & God bless you always. This was your dream and the dream lives on!
