RIVER CITY BLUES SOCIETY EVENT
The Moonshine Brothers Blues Band is a band you won't soon forget, from the first song to the last you will enjoy their energy and style. Each member of the incendiary quartet is a seasoned veteran of the Quad City music scene. On guitar, two time International Blues Challenge finalist Chris Avey brings his own signature style to classic tunes and his incredible originals. On vocals and Harmonics, also a International Blues Challenge finalist, Ricardo Burris has been delivering high energy performances for over 15 years to local and regional audiences. Whether its on the stand up bass or the five string, David Abdo is a true master of the bass. From his pocket groves to his incredible dynamics he is without a doubt the head of the class. On Drums, also a Blues Challenge finalist, Brian West is always ready to show the way with his classic drum style. Whether its on the small stage or in front of a festival crowd the Moonshine Brothers Blues Band delivers a live show like no one else. Over time we have shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the business: Walter Trout, Big Pete Pearson, Chris Duarte, Buddy Guy and Tommy Castro just to name a few. So come on out and let's have a drink and party to some great live blues.
