A year and a half ago Rocky and RC were running from the CSX boys who didn’t believe their story that they were just standing in front of a box car with a spray paint can in their hand posing for a record cover. When they ran to the refuge of Strangeways Brewing they weren’t sure if they were still being chased but they knew they were thirsty…. The new band and the new brewery bonded. Where else would RC and The Moonpie Band have their worldwide CD Listening / CD Release Party?
While many consider RC and The Moonpie Band to be a blues band they are perhaps more accurately described as an American roots band, playing R ‘n B, soul, blues and rock ‘n roll. Their debut recording Individually Wrapped reflects the many influences of this 5 piece band in their interpretations of obscure songs from Bobby “Blue” Bland, Jimmy Vaughan, and Rufus Thomas as well as their original compositions about farmers’ daughters, sexual innuendo and baseball.
Please grab a beer and join The Moonpie Band from 5PM – 8:30PM at Strangeways for their CD Listening / CD Release Party*.
(*The cd will be available. The band will not perform.)
