Inspired by the natural beauty of the West, Kingwhistler's music is a mix of Classic Rock, Americana, and Folk. Often compared to The Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Kingwhistler seeks to bring the sound of the golden age of rock and roll to a new generation. With rambling piano lines, rollicking guitar licks, and catchy hooks, Kingwhistler’s debut album "Grass Routes" was released in 2014 and is available on iTunes, Amazon Music, and Spotify.
Frontman Nick Aliberti draws inspiration from his travels, having lived all over the country from Maine to Arizona, New York City to Los Angeles, and all the way to Carson City, NV where he currently resides. Kingwhistler has played to rave reviews at some of the most iconic music venues in Hollywood including The Viper Room, Hotel Cafe, and The House of Blues. After less than a year playing in Nevada, Kingwhistler has already kicked off the Levitt Amp Summer Series at the Brewery Arts Center opening for “Antsy McClain,” opened for “The Black Lillies” at Piper’s Opera House, played festivals such as the Nevada State Fair, been featured on KNVC, and played numerous solo shows and private events throughout Northern Nevada.
“…so come along and have a listen, tap your toes and keep on whistlin’!”

"The album has an old-time rootsy vibe to it, with a nod back to the California folk-country-rock of the 1960s and '70s even as it looks firmly toward today and the future... Kingwhistler does not imitate anyone. They are uniquely their own men, making use of musical traditions without ever being enslaved by them." -- Review by Michael Scott Cain, RAMBLES.net
"In the studio, Kingwhistler are a remarkably crafted outfit. A near perfect recreation of the California country-rock sound of the ‘70. On stage, that friendly band takes on an edge. Readings of their showstopper “Sun Shine Slow Down” summon deafening cheers as Kingwhistler transform into a rockin’ crew, armed with guitar solos that smolder with bluesy heat and drums that barrel forward with freight-train force. A Kingwhistler show means good times, stellar musicianship and a bit of rock and roll spirit. What more could you ask for?" -- Review by Avinash Mittur
