Results for "New Orleans Moonshiners"
The New Orleans Moonshiners formed in early 2008 as a group of young musicians trying to get their feet wet playing traditional jazz. After months of playing on the street in the French Quarter for tips, the world-famous Donna’s Bar and Grill invited them inside to take the stage on Fridays. It was there that the band began to take shape. New Orleans native Chris Edmunds, the Moonshiners’ banjo player and bandleader, wanted to keep the music fresh, however. He and other band members began writing original songs in the traditional style, as well as re-arranging old standards. The Moonshiners soon became fixtures with regular gigs all over town, such as Rock N Bowl, Bacchanal Wine, and their current regular gig every Thursday night at the Spotted Cat on Frenchmen St
