The Blame The Whiskey Story

Blame The Whiskey is an original Americana band from New England.  The group was founded in April 2017 by Rebecca Carter Burke and David Alex-Barton.  David was the lead singer and guitarist in the popular Boston 80’s punk rock band The Outlets.   Rebecca is an independent artist and former cast member in the musical “Texas”.  


Initially, they were looking to form an acoustic trio and added Stephen Gilligan, the bass player for the legendary Boston band The Stompers.  However, as the trio took off, they realized something was missing.  Within a few weeks of their first practice, the group brought in Dave Hoitt, to play cajon and drums.  Dave is a Boston area drummer and former drummer for the San Francisco band Rug Doctor.  In 2019, the band added their fifth 'Whiskey Blamer', Alex Sennett. Alex is a Boston area guitarist and former lead guitarist for the Ashley Jordan band. 


Blame The Whiskey’s sound is big and unique.  The band's format is adaptable to any venue offering small 4 piece performances to large 7 piece shows.  They are very well received, by local audiences, for their distinctive style and energy.  Blame The Whiskey performs covers of Country/Americana songs as well as several original songs.
