Moonshine Reunion en Lawen Stark & The Slide Boppers brengen je in de juiste rockmood en DJ Dax sluit het feest af.
Sometimes the most American of settings can reveal the deepest artistic talents the world has ever known. Johnny Cash on the farms of Arkansas, Mike Ness on the mean streets of Los Angeles, and a skinny kid from the ghettos of Tupelo named Elvis who happened to be brimming with soul. JD Mcpherson is one of those talents cut from that same artistic cloth. Growing up in southern Oklahoma, Mcpherson, the progeny of an ex-military, farming father and “good word” preaching mother, Mcpherson had an intriguing childhood and those influences shine blissfully through his music. His sound is raw it feels old, like the hum of a 50’s convertible cruising the back roads of the Mississippi delta, but it’s new and innovative.While most kids from the sticks heros were rodeo stars and country singers, Mcpherson heard the liberal screech of The Talking Heads and Bad Brains and let it empower him. But the allure of the American Roots Music scene is what made his musical mouth salivate. The honest troubadours of song that roamed from honky tonks to back alley bar rooms that machine gunned a town every night, one song at a time.
The Moonshine Reunion boys played together in the former Los Fabulous Frankies, a rockin' road machine that has seen its share of towns all across Europe. No wonder Moonshine Reunion was a grand live act from day one. They are hellbent to take it even further, with a chain of skilfully crafted songs, the band taps into half a century of roots music, like the glory days of Sun Records to more recent Americana brilliance of Dave Gonzalez and the tender twist of Chris Isaak. Just an old Gretch guitar won't cut it for Moonshine Reunion . These excellent players master a wide range of vintage gear to enrich their authentic tone. They let the blues slide in lonesome rhymes, but before long the twang swings back to Trucking Country and Rockabilly Barnburners. Like a dear friend that's gone Hankin' and returns with new stories to tell, their first cd SEX, TRUCKS & ROCK 'N' ROLL honours a fine tradition by delivering outstanding contemporary originals. Their latest album TIRED OF DRIVIN' was recorded in October 2010 at Jimmy Sutton's Histyle Recording Studio in Chicago.
