“Soul and rock and roll collide and sparks fly when Julia Felice and the Whiskey Crisis take to the stage.” (from the 2017 Grassroots Festival of Music & Dance). With Julia Felice’s powerful lead vocals and an all-star lineup of Ithaca talent, the Whiskey Crisis will have you on your feet dancing one minute and wow you with a soulful ballad the next. The band combines their wide range of original soul/rock with covers of their favorites—think Amy Winehouse, the Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, and the Beatles—and their surprising, crowd-pleasing twists on pop hits.
