From: JB and the Moonshine Band
JB and the Moonshine Band are from Tyler, Texas. They've been on the Texas music scene for a few years now and have been making a big name for themselves.
But their start up story is interesting yet simple. JB left an advertising career to pursue his dream as a songwriter. He soon realized that in order to even attempt to make it in the business you had to sing your own songs and a devoted band. He held a local, open audition for musicians and only three people showed up. That three was enough to put the Moonshine Band together. They have played for any and every venue that invited them to come. So far that has paid off. They've quickly gained the love from their hometown fans and that love is spread to the remaining corners of the state and beyond.
