"On âFrenchmen Street Parade,â their third full-length CD, the New Orleans Moonshiners do what they do best: Swing out on spry, light-on-its-feet traditional jazz, a mix of original compositions and hundred-year-old standards. âFrenchmen Street Paradeâ features six originals by Chris Edmunds, the bandâs banjoist/guitarist, including the title track. Elsewhere, the ensemble of stringed instruments, upright bass, drums, clarinet, trombone, cornet, trumpet and various guest vocalists scoots through âK&B Rag,â named in honor of the defunct drugstore chain. Edmunds wrote the sly ballad âI Wish I Had Two of Youâ in the classic jazz style; a plunger trombone solo brings it home."
--From Keith Spera of the Times Picayune
Another review of this CD from swing dancer extraordinaire, Peter Loggins: https://www.tradebit.com
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 Donnaâs 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 Moonshinersâ 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. They have performed at festivals all over New Orleans such as New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest , French Quarter Fest, and Satchmo Fest, among many others. Their latest CD, âIâm Cominâ Homeâ (2010), is a local favorite on WWOZâs traditional jazz and New Orleans Music shows. The Moonshiners draw an enthusiastic following of swing dancers, music fans, and fellow musicians alike by adding a creative modern energy and their unique originals to traditional jazz, whipping up a never-before-heard gumbo of music that is flamboyantly entertaining and toe-tappingly good. Young or old, people seem to agree: the Moonshinersâ energy is contagious. Catch 'em for free every Thursday night at 10pm at The Spotted Cat.
