Hi PMW Fans,
We are so excited to be debuting “A Special Tribute to the Allman Brothers Band” this Saturday kicking off in Sebastopol! It will also be the return show of Sean Lehe! The dates are listed here and growing all the time: DATES Also check out this photos of our rehearsal this week.
The winds of change are in the air out here in Whiskeyland! PMW guitarist Chris Haugen is moving on to pursue his solo musical endeavors. We urge all our friends and family to visit his website so you can all check out his musical projects. We wish Chris the best, he will always be part of the Whiskey family and will continue to share stages with us on the road ahead!!
We are thrilled to announce the return of Sean Lehe (of Izabella fame) re-taking the lead guitar roll in Poor Man’s Whiskey!!! After a two year hiatus Sean is back and ready to rock. This spring we are taking it “Back to Where it all Begins” to our musical roots with a special set of our favorite Allman Brothers tunes. We are looking forward to seeing all of you in a town near you!!
Thanks to everyone came out to the shows and helped make 2013 another great year for Poor Man’s Whiskey. We are hitting the road again in 2014 with a special new show featuring a set of our original Nor Cal Hoe downs and an extended second set of our favorite Allman Brothers tunes. We will pull out the ol’ Hammond and Leslie for this one! Our first show will be in our hometown of Sebastopol at the Sebastopol Community Center on Feb. 15th. Tickets are limited so get your tickets in advance here. More dates on the West Coast coming soon!
It’s hard to believe the year is coming to an end! PMW will be taking a short winter break to complete their album and to welcome a new member into the Brough clan and the Whiskey family! We will be back at it in early spring so look for upcoming dates. In the mean time we are celebrating the holiday season with some local shows to close out the year. We will be at the Mystic Theater on Dec. 6th (Head for the Hills to open) and at Humbrew’s on Dec. 7th. We will be doing 2 sets each night…with our second set paying tribute to “Old and in the Way”! Come on out and celebrate with Poor Man’ s Whiskey!
Well the Summer is finally wrapping up and PMW is starting to look ahead for the fall. We are taking a few weeks off in September then kicking things back up again in October. This Fall we are looking forward to touring “Old and in the Way” at selected venues. We will be playing a set of our original Nor Cal hoe-downs and jams along with a special set of our favorite “Old and in the Way” tunes. Not all shows are “Old and in the Way”..so please check the show details if you are hoping to see that particular show. Hope to see ya out there!

After years of relentless driving of vast (but beautiful) emptiness between major markets from Denver to the West Coast..we finally saw a picture of the United States at night and thought “hmm…maybe we should go to the East Coast!”. After a few more West Coast festivals (Kate Wolf, Oregon Country Fair, and NWSS) Poor Man’s Whiskey is excited to head on it’s first East Coast run. We will kick it off at the Evolve Music Festival in Nova Scotia. We will spend the following week in New York (Brooklyn Bowl), Fairfield Connecticut (Stage One Fairfield Theater), and New Market New Hamphshire (Stone Church). We will round it out up in Ontario at the Hillside Festival. If you know anyone in these areas please help us put the word out about the shows. We will be doing “Dark Side of the Moonshine”! Yee Haw.
