Well it all started in Lucan Town, Ontario, Canada, when The Moonshine Riders began their pursuit to settle the score with Country Music. A band consisting of five regulators, Dust n' Bones (bass), Lonestar Law (keys), Jeffy B (axe), Heartbreak Hardy (lead vocals, tele) & Nevada Brown (skins).
The boys create and perform an aggressive new style and sound of country music known in Nashville as "Rock Opry". (Quoted by John Taylor of Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Nashville Tennessee)
The Moonshine Riders unique live performance captivates audiences throughout Ontario including the International Plowing Match in Sept. 2002 with daily crowds of over 10 thousand, various bars & country events with audiences of various ages. The Moonshine Riders rocked the crowd at The World Famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge in Nashville, Tennessee Sept, 2002. Entertaining their crowd with tasteful originals, inspired country and rock & roll classics, The Moonshine Riders packed the house and with their unique stage presence, they put it all together and kicked ass.
Nevada Brown's dramatic stand up drumming,
Heartbreak Hardy's tremendous voice and good looks,
Dust n' Bones steady simple cool rhythm,
Jeffy B's psychotic 6-string work, and
Lonestar Law's Jerry Lee Lewis style tactics on the keys.
In January 2003, The Moonshine Riders completed their first album at Tootsies Riverside Studio produced by the legendary P.T. Houston.
The Moonshine Riders work to bring the heart n' soul and grit back to Country Music.
