*****Merchants of Moonshine is a top three, 5-STAR, L.A. Gigmasters band, NOW AVAILABLE IN ILLINOIS...close to our midwest homes!!! Check out our 5-star rating and reviews on our Los Angeles Gigmasters profile*****

Created eight years ago, Merchants of Moonshine is a young group of musicians that deliver a versatile, exciting, high energy show to any occasion, large or small. Whether it's traditional country favorites, pop country covers, southern/classic rock hits, or originals, we have it covered. We also have a female member of the band that can provide line dance instruction for your event if you desire.

M.o.M. is comprised of six musicians from all over America (OH, NE, TX, MO, MI, FL) who met in Los Angeles and constructed "their" version of a country band. They perform/write tunes in the spirit of country's past greats while incorporating a sound that invites the modern listener. "REVITALIZED ROOTS COUNTRY WITH A KICK!"

With close to 600 gigs under their belt, they have become southern California's premiere local country band and now split time between L.A. and Nashville as they tour the entire U.S. They have shared the stage with Rodney Crowell, Zac Brown Band, David Allan Coe, Billy Bob Thornton & the Boxmasters, Wade Hayes, The Blasters, Trisha Yearwood, Hal Ketchum, Little Texas, Asleep at the Wheel, Clint Black, Junior Brown, Will Kimbrough, Bo Bice, Neal McCoy, Jason Boland & The Stragglers, and Phil Vasser. They have performed at several large fairs and rodeos, four of the largest being National Finals Rodeo (Vegas), the L.A. County Fair, the Honda Center, and Angels Stadium. They have played at many "High Profile" Los Angeles venues including Viper Room, The Mint, and Key Club. Awards include South Bay Music Award's 2007 "Country Artist of the Year", Colgate Country Showdown's 2006 "California State Finalist", and they consistently break attendance records at most of the bars/clubs they frequent. They have been featured (interviewed and played) on Shawn Parr's "local spotlight" on KKGO 105.1 GoCountry. "Country Love" written by M.o.M. was used in a feature film entitled "Cut Off" starring Faye Dunaway, Malcolm McDowell, and Kurupt.

They have recently taken their show on the road with a series of mini-tours encompassing the states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Minnesota, Maryland, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. On these trips they have played staple venues such as Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar" (Minneapolis/Detroit), Gilley's (Vegas), Museum Club (Flagstaff), Stubb's (Austin), Billy Bob's Texas (Ft. Worth), Adair's Saloon (Dallas) and a Blue Angels air show (Bossier City).

They went above and beyond!! Very talented group of musicians. They were so easy going and were able to do so much more than we intially asked them. Can't wait to book them again! The crowd at our wedding could not get enough of them and all look forward to booking and recommending them too!

My clients were looking for a "country" style band to play their Chicago wedding. This can be a tricky thing in the Midwest, and I searched for weeks. I was able to find Merchants of Moonshine, and I knew I'd found our band!! From the beginning of this long planning process, I worked with Chris and he was fantastic! Answering emails and phone-calls promptly and always with great enthusiasm! I felt very assured that my clients were not only hiring a musically talented band, but were were in very capable hands! The band came to our city, looking great and played beautiful music, which the Bride & Groom LOVED! I would highly recommend Merchants of Moonshine to friends
