No-holds-barred honky-tonk tunes
Some might say the four-piece JB & the Moonshine Band was born the day JB Patterson looked up to see that only three musicians had shown up at his open-call auditions in his hometown in Tyler. Fortunately, Gabe Guevara (drums), Hayden McMullen (lead guitar) and Chris Flores (bass guitar) turned out to be the right three, and after a brief musical and personal get-to-know-you session, everyone realized the stars had aligned to bring them together. But if you ask JB when the band really started, he’ll reflect back to a time rooted less in music and more in his unfulfilled dreams. When he found out his going to be a father (to his now 3-year-old son, Parker), he wanted to be able to tell his son that he could be whatever he wanted to be as long as he set his mind to it and worked hard. But before he could do that, JB realized that he needed to practice what he planned to preach and pursue his dream of being a singer/songwriter. Since taking the plunge into the music business, JB and the guys have seen enough success for JB to realize he’s already accomplished what he set out to do. In just over three years, JB has written a couple of tunes that wound up on top of the Billboard Texas music charts, and he and the band have recorded and released two acclaimed albums, Ain’t Goin’ Back to Jail and Beer for Breakfast, while playing shows all over the country. Beer for Breakfast made Rolling Stone’s Top 5 Country albums of 2012, and the band was Country Music Television’s artist of the month in March 2013. They were nominated for six Texas Regional Radio awards last year. The combination of the band’s great chemistry and JB’s excellent songwriting gives these East Texas boys instant credibility wherever they play. Whether cranking out no-holds-barred honky-tonk drinking tunes or throttling back to sing about matters of the heart, JB & the Moonshine Band’s tunes have the ring of truth.
