A new emerging band in Missoula, the guys were stoked to make the Trail their first first radio stop. With the influences ranging from BB King to David Bowie, it is safe to say that these guys will do well here in the city of soul.

About Rotgut Whines
Rotgut Whines combines soulful rhythms with energizing tempos and passionate storytelling to create their signature sound: Fingerpickin’ Soul and Roll. Lead singer/guitarist Evan Manuel and drummer/backup vocalist Andrew Murphy prove wrong the old adage that there is more strength in numbers. Murphy’s crisp beats and deep baritone voice provide the perfect supplements to Manuel’s flying fingers and catchy melodies. First-time listeners are often shocked at the pair’s ability to create the powerful sound some fans have described as “magic.”
Though born on opposite coasts, the duo met in the Montana mountans in late 2014, when they became roommates and bonded over a shared love of music. Rotgut Whines was officially formed in April 2015 and, one year later, the bandmates moved to Missoula with plans to record their first album. Still roommates, the ease of their friendship is obvious on stage and creates an effortless vibe that captivates audiences. Their palpable energy and passion make it impossible not to get up and dance.
