Live Music: Modern Day Moonshine


March 22, 2020 1:00 pm

With a catalog of original songs that reaches well into the hundreds, MDM jump genres and fuse styles on a dime, all while maintaining a distinct soulful sound that can only be identified as their own. Over the course of 6 years, over 600 gigs, and 4 studio albums, the trio have developed a sound that calls on the soulful sounds of the greats from the late sixties and early seventies.

‘Despite the variety of styles, one doesn’t get the impression that you listen to more than only one band. MODERN DAY MOONSHINE have a strong identity, resulting in an extremely cohesive album. The opener ‘Unsung’ brings back memories of Crosby, Still, Nash & Young, but the following track ‘Expiration Date’ is heading in a different direction. It’s a powerful combination of funk and jazz where they prove that they easily master both styles. For these reasons, MODERN DAY MOONSHINE doesn’t sound like a white band who are trying to imitate a black funk band.
