MIKE AND THE MOONPIES
Once celebrated as Austin’s premiere dancehall band – with popular residencies at local institutions like The Hole In the Wall, Broken Spoke and the White Horse to match – the Moonpies have spent years expanding their reach far beyond the Lone Star State. Geographically, they’ll always be a Texas band. Musically, they’ve grown into much more than that, having traded the two-steppin’ twang of their earlier years for a diverse sound that’s both fresh and familiar. That sound has earned the group an international following, and it was during a European tour that the bulk of Cheap Silver and Solid Country Gold was created -in the same world-renowned, London-area recording studio where the Beatles recorded Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Pink Floyd tracked Dark Side of the Moon, no less.
