Welcome back to Guest List, where bands play, we film and you get to watch.

For our fourth Guest List, we caught up with the Omaha Americana band The Whipkey Three.

Matt Whipkey is a guitar gunslinger. Once he pulls his Telecaster from its case, be prepared to have blues riffs, rock jams and razor sharp guitar solos.

Whipkey, the frontman of Whipkey Three, is also a songwriter, leading the songwriting efforts in the Whipkey Three, on some solo albums and with his former bands Anonymous American and The Movies. Whipkey also plays guitar in Brad Hoshaw and the Seven Deadlies.

The band's new album, “Two Truths,” comes out on May 12.

“The record is a big, old straight-ahead rock ‘n' roll record – big guitars, big drums, big bass,” said Whipkey Three bassist Travis Sing.

“It's very much a rock record,” Whipkey said. “We have that quiet side to it sometimes, too.”

For Guest List, the band played acoustic versions of “Reagan Era” and the as-yet-unreleased “You Were A Song.”
