Moonshine Society

Moonshine Society delivers roots rock, blues, and old school R&B in a style guaranteed to keep audiences dancing, heads nodding, and the drinks flowing. Often compared to Susan Tedeschi, Bonnie Raitt, and Alabama Shakes, this is a powerful band of musicians from around the world. The band has made their way around the world including venues throughout US, Cuba, and China, landing th titles such as #1 Blues/Jazz Band in Shanghai" in TimeOut Magazine, "Top Don't Miss Show" from Delta Airlines Sky Magazine, and more. In 2012, three members were inducted in to the Blues Hall of Fame. Now featured on many major, college, internet and XM stations. Moonshine Society and its members have performed and recorded with artists such as John Mayer, The Nighthawks, George Clinton Funkadelic, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Peaches, Everclear, Roomful of Blues, Brian Eno, Pinetop Perkins, Tab Benoit, Johnny Winter, Sh ekia Copeland, Bo Diddley, RZA, Tab Benoit, Allen Toussaint and more. Moonshine Society's debut album Live in Shanghai was released independently in late 2011 and recorded at the House of Blues and Jazz (Shanghai, China) after Chinese film star Lin Dong Fu (owner of the club) personally selected and invited the band for a three month stay. In 2012, the band and album were nominated for two Wammies (Best Blues/Trad. R&B band and Best Blues/Trad. R&B album) and named in the Top 3 Fan Favorites in Washington, DC. In 2013, lead singeR&Black Betty received a Wammie nomination for Best Blues/Trad. R&B female Vocalist. Although a favorite at many college rock venues, they've really made waves in the international blues scene thrilling audiences at festivals with a fresh, younger take on the classic American roots style.
