The MoonRaiders are a Western Swing band that combine elements of Jazz, Rock n' Roll, Country, and Truck Driving music.
Award winning guitarist Chris Hersch (www.chrishersch.com
) leads this quintet of accomplished musicians, improvising and singing their way through an eclectic set that will please both the dancer and music aficionado.
Drawing on a unique repertoire often overlooked in the American Songbook, The MoonRaiders pivot between Bob Wills, Chuck Berry, Dave Dudley, Commander Cody, and original music, all in one show.
This is their first EP, a calling card of sorts, featuring some choice covers that exemplify what they're all about: 'Honky Tonk Trucker Jazz & Rock n' Roll'
