The Hillbilly Moonshiners Bluegrass Band

Bio

Est – 2016

 The Hillbilly Moonshiners are a contemporary bluegrass band playing your favorite tunes from today and back in the day. That’s right, folks: The Hillbilly Moonshiners drench your dearest radio hits in some dirty Louisiana swamp water. Heehaw!

These five greasy, ungentlemanly Southerners (or Rednecks, if you will) like to have a good time, Bayou-style. Relive classic tunes by artists like George Baker, Bon Jovi, Michael Jackson and Stealers Wheel, and party to modern day hit songs by The Weeknd, Miley Cyrus, Beyoncé, Mumford & Sons, and the like. So, gulp down your homebrewed, vitamin-rich moonshine (you know, the type that made your cousin Wade go blind!) and shake that ass like it’s the Summer of 69!

2018 years after the year of our Lord, The Hillbilly Moonshiners have played at over 220 different venues over the course of their 4-year existence! Would you believe that?! They played bars, theaters, music festivals. They shared the stage with the Steve ‘N’ Seagulls, Saybia, Kensington and The Common Linnets. They performed at the Veszprém and Sziget festivals in Hungary, did a show at the Dutch Paaspop Festival and multiple shows at Zwarte Cross, and sold out a multitude of their M&S tribute shows at some top-of-the-line venues.

The Hillbilly Moonshiners play Mumford and Sons
It is hard to not have seen Mumford and Sons live over the past few years. The British folk band played all the major festivals, including Pinkpop Festival, Lowlands Festival, Glastonbury Festival and Lollapalooza and had massive hit singles with songs such as ‘I Will Wait’, ‘Lover of the Light’ and of course ‘Little Lion Man’.

The Hillbilly Moonshiners play all the hits and less familiar tunes by the British folk band. From ‘Sigh No More’ to ‘Babel’ and straight into the ‘Wilder Mind’ repertoire. They might even surprise you with a bootleg or a cover the band did themselves during one of their shows. The Hillbilly Moonshiners play Mumford and Sons, about as close as a tribute to M&S can get!
