OC Weekly named Moonsville Collective as best live band of 2012.
Moonsville Collective is an Old-Time band whose sound is rooted in the various American musical styles found, and often left behind, in Pre-War (WWII) America. The various songwriters in the group work independently and collectively to create a unique batch of String Band, Folk, Country, Dixie and New Orleans Rag music that is sure to warm the soul and induce a jig good as any Cat Daddy batch on the market could. Each member of Moonsville has firm roots in this musical tradition and aim not to reproduce nostalgia of a time forgotten, but rather ressurect the ghost of America’s rich musical cultural history, which most importantly is rooted in community. Moonsville Collective plays community music. The table is large, the harvest is plenty and the drink is ripe. Break bread with us. Everyone is invited.
