    The Whiskeydicks are a group of Celtic Gypsy punk rockers who have spent the better part of a decade carving a reputation for themselves as "One Hell of a Good Time." The Whiskeydicks use fiery celtic-gypsy fiddle licks, cello played like a bass, bombastic trumpet, vivacious drum beats, energetic guitar strumming, and voice to tell stories of good times past and to play songs people know but in a way they’d never imagine.

  • Chris Witoski | Lead Vocals, Acoustic Guitar
    “Soulful, passionate, heartfelt rock” is the perfect description of Chris Witoski’s music. Whether performing a solo acoustic show or touring internationally with his band his intensity and passion on the microphone are truly compelling. Born in St.Catharines, Ontario, some of his earliest jams included City and Colour’s “Dallas Green”.
