Come listen to the happy music and raise your stein…..Prosit!
Moonshine Rhythm Club
Based in Nashville, TN, Moonshine Rhythm Club started out as a pick-up trio one late night at a Jump Session swing dance in Nashville. They started busking around central TN, finding their sound and wowing audiences of all ages. Now, they are performing swing tunes at dance events, festivals, clubs, weddings, private parties while still keeping true to their origins. They are as comfortable playing for a Lindy Hop or Balboa dance audience, as they are to a seated enthralled crowd – although people don’t remain seated for long.
Moonshine Rhythm Club brings you the works – great ambiance, high energy, top-notch showmanship, and an authentic sound that honors American swing and gypsy jazz alike.
