Mike Penny Short Info

Mike Penny & his Moonshiners – rockin’ and swinging hillbilly music

Mike Penny & his Moonshiners are an authentic 50s Outfit with a rootsy and original sound – combined with Mike Pennys geat crooners voice and a lot of rockin’ and swinging Hillbilly tunes. Definitely a great live band, whether at big festivals or small clubs. Always enchanting & danceable.

Mike has been playing at festivals all over Europe: The Rockabilly Rave, Hepcats Holidays and Rhythm Riot in UK, Summer Jamboree festival in Italy, Rockin’ around Turnhout (Belgium), and several venues around Germany.

First album “Don’t start breathin’ down my neck!” was released in 2010 on Rhythm Bomb Records and contains 15 mostly Western Swing tracks – from Hank Penny’s “Peroxide Blonde” over Merle Travis “So round so firm so fully packed” to a Western Swing Cover of “Mr. Sandman”.

The second Album “Texas Boogie” is even more rootsy sounding but also much wilder than the first one. Recorded at the famous Lightning Recorders Studio in Berlin. All recordings were made analogue and live to tape. Mike also added the great honky tonkin’ boogie piano player Thomas ‘Piano’ Schultze and the brilliant travis guitar picker Axel Praefke (Cherry Casino, Round Up Boys, …) to the band. A great combination of wild Hillbilly, early Rock And Roll and old style Western Swing tracks.

Weltweit gibt es nur wenige Musiker, die sich so authentisch und leidenschaftlich den Genres Western Swing & Hillbilly widmen wie Mike Penny mit seiner Band "The Moonshiners". Was sie bereits mit zahlreichen Auftritten auf großen Festivals wie dem Rockabilly Rave, Rhythm Riot oder der Summer Jamboree nachdrücklich unter Beweis gestellt haben.

Mit ihrer aktuellen CD „Texas Boogie“ ist Mike Penny ein Album gelungen, das mit einer großen Bandbreite überrascht: Von Country Roots über typischen Western Swing, jazzigen Hillbilly, Boogie Woogie bis hin zu early Rock and Roll. Jederzeit authentisch und tanzbar.

Live verzaubert Mike Penny das Publikum mit seiner markanten Stimme, dem typischen "Mike Penny Sound", Humor und großer Spielfreude - auf großen Bühnen wie in kleinen Clubs.
