FUN. That may be the best and simplest way to describe Friday's Sounds Good Live Lunch guests: Whiskey Shivers. Or maybe: "The best new bluegrass band out there," by way of the BBC.

Our next Sounds Good Live Lunch features Nashville band Great Peacock on Friday, October 9 at 11 a.m. This group's duo-harmony heavy, guitar-driven sounds blend rootsy, folk-Americana with super-sized arena pop/rock. You can call them a folk band, "but don't expect them to make music for campfires or square dances" they write on their website. Hear them live at WKMS and watch the live video web stream here.
