Chris Hersch & The MoonRaiders

...the MoonRaiders, is an instrumental twang type of project – an amalgamation of country, jazz, rock, and, well, space. It’s the soundtrack to exploring the galaxy as it exists in the confines of a spaghetti Western – with a side of extra sauce. It’s tasty. It’s worthy of seconds, thirds, and even fourths. So extend the belt, make room, and get ready for a smattering of fun.”

Honky Tonk Trucker Jazz & Rock n' Roll

Chris Hersch & The MoonRaiders

The MoonRaiders are a Western Swing band that combine elements of Jazz, Rock n' Roll, Country, and Truck Driving music.

Award winning guitarist Chris Hersch (www.chrishersch.com) leads this quintet of accomplished musicians, improvising and singing their way through an eclectic set that will please both the dancer and music aficionado.

Drawing on a unique repertoire often overlooked in the American Songbook, The MoonRaiders pivot between Bob Wills, Chuck Berry, Dave Dudley, Commander Cody, and original music, all in one show.

This is their first EP, a calling card of sorts, featuring some choice covers that exemplify what they're all about: 'Honky Tonk Trucker Jazz & Rock n' Roll'

Chris Hersch & The MoonRaiders is a raucous melting pot of influences...if Dick Dale met Link Wray in a Bakersfield dive and found Dana Colley to play sax, it might sound like The MoonRaiders on their debut album Space Lasso.”
