Whiskey Bear Live with Lauren Mink

Acoustic
We're excited to bring some of Lexington's favorite artists for the launch of Whiskey Bear Live. Join us every Saturday, grab dinner from one of your favorite local restaurants, enjoy a drink with us and settle in for an evening full of great live music. Lauren Mink is a local singer that’s been compared to the likes of Sugarland & Stevie Nicks. This powerhouse vocalist can move you with an Adele tune or take you back to late 90’s country with Faith Hill & Leann Rimes. Lauren just loves a good tune you can sing along to, which shows in her diverse fun-filled sets. She plays alongside a talented guitar man, Dale Adams—better known as the ToneDr in the YouTube world. You won’t regret spending a couple hours listening to these two play—you’ll most likely be wanting even more!

James E. Pepper Tasting with Distillery Proprietor, Amir Peay

Food/Tasting
Whiskey Bear was born out of our desire to share our love of whiskey and other spirits with our guests. Our Tasting Events are designed to further the dialogue and create unique experiences during which guests can learn more about the “Water of Life.” * * * * * Join the Whiskey Bear team and Amir Peay, proprietor of the historic James E. Pepper Distillery in Lexington, KY, for a special tasting event. The Pepper family brand of whiskey is an iconic Kentucky & American whiskey brand initially produced from the American Revolution through 1958. After going out of production for decades, it was relaunched by whiskey entrepreneur, Amir Peay, in 2008. A campaign of thorough historical research and collection of historic materials has been ongoing, and have been used to retell the lost story of this iconic American whiskey brand and to distill new stocks of "Pepper" whiskey. The brand was re-launched under the James E. Pepper "1776" line of award-winning whiskeys. The culmination of the brand resurrection coincided with a multi-year project to renovate and rebuild the historic James E. Pepper Distillery in Lexington, KY, which re-commenced production in December of 2017.

Whiskey Bear Live with The Sway

Acoustic, Live Music in Bar/Club
The Sway are couple in song and life, Chris Floyd and Melanie Pauley. Think sexy, soulful pop rock. Melanie's vocals are rich and warm and put the velvet on the more classic rock/pop guitar and gritty harmonies from Chris. The tension of the male/female archetype is palpable in their lyrics and songs.

Whiskey Bear Live with Fawn Larson & Jesse Co

Acoustic
JESSE CORRELL: For several years, Jesse had been mulling over the idea of starting a podcast for singer-songwriters. He was drawn to the intimacy and specificity of the medium. Having moved to a completely unknown city, he also knew this would be a great way to meet fellow travelers and garner their tricks of the trade. In early 2016, he launched The Hexagon: A Podcast For Singer-Songwriters. By the end of 2017, he had explored six aspects of being a working solo musician (songwriting, performing, recording, business, growth, and life) with 21 artists. In early 2018, Jesse has begun releasing his fourth album Steady Drip one song each month, exclusively to his patrons on patreon.com. “Releasing the album in this way is allowing me to connect directly with my fans, immediately as I’m finishing the work,” he says. “I’m continuing to plumb deeply personal terrain, in hopes that I find that magical spot where the highly individual experience rubs up against the universal. I hope people hear my unfolding story in song and it inspires them to take the risks needed to stay true to themselves.” * * * * * FAWN LARSON: Fawn Larson is an Americana indie rock musician with a story to tell. Relentless yet soft-spoken, her songs leave the listener wanting more – more connection, more home, more yearning, more desire. A strikingly eloquent singer-songwriter, her voice and sound deliver on themes that speak to falling in love, reclaiming old truths, and the pain of letting go. She has sold out venues and attracted audiences that hang onto her every word. Her upcoming full-length album “Loose Hand” promises to bring more of the raw and honest sound that Larson has become known for across the South and beyond. Born in Louisiana and residing in Nashville, her music is influenced by the dance halls, street jazz, and sticky summer bluegrass sounds of Cajun country. But her unique expression transcends genre and lands in a place of gritty rock and smooth lyricality, all with a vulnerability that honors her folk roots. Her band, Fawn Larson & the Fringe is piano and electric guitar driven, featuring lush three-part harmonies that get under your skin in the most delicate way.
