Moonshine Express to bootleg in Revelstoke

East Van party band Moonshine Express runs Rum tour through Revelstoke at Tuesday, June 18 Last Drop show.

My kingdom for a hi-res publicity shot! And a pox on the disorganized houses of Facebook and MySpace! The Revelstoke Times Review would like to nominate East Van party band Moonshine Express for the best band website we’ve seen in a while (moonshineexpress.com). Bucking the trend of cluttered incohesion, their housekept and well-stated ‘site actually tells the band’s story and gives you an idea of what you’re going to get if you go see them play. And that’s a party-primed, funk-influenced, DIY five-piece band that mashes soul, jazz, funk and rock into their fun, musically accomplished vibe. And they rap a little. ME released their first EP thank drunk I’m not God in 2011 and has followed up with two singles this year, Big City and Moonshine Express Theme II. No time to check out their website? The closest I can come up with is a jazzier, tighter Uplift Mofo Party Plan with horns. They come across as band that would be equally fun to party to and party with. Let’s hope Revelstoke can muster up enough people for a weekday show in the shoulder season when their Funky Rum Runners Tour stops at The Last Drop on Tuesday, June 18. Moonshine Express is Tak Arikushi, Pat Garcia, Dave Goosen, Dan Hepler, and Richard Mitchell.
