Back in 2009 JB Patterson gave up a career in advertising to pursue his dream of being a songwriter. He listed an open casting call in his east Texas community and in very short order found “The Moonshine Band”! Gabe Guevara on drums, Hayden McMullen on lead guitar, Chris Flores on bass guitar and JB providing lead vocals, banjo, and acoustic guitar. They’ve been touring ever since, and have honed their craft. In 2010 they released the album, “Ain’t Goin’ Back To Jail”, and recently they released their second album, “Beer For Breakfast”. For a band that has only been around for about 3 years, these guys have serious chops. Not only musically, but lyrically as well. Great songs deserve to be heard, and JB And The Moonshine Band deliver the goods track after track.
Steve Rixx had the chance to talk to JB about the band, the new album, and some of the crazy things that happen when you’re cooped up in an F150 with 5 other dudes! See JB And The Moonshine Band live at the Dosey Doe, in the Woodlands, October 12th.
Here’s one of their awesome videos for the song “Perfect Girl”! It’s available on the new album, “Beer For Breakfast”.
