JB & the Moonshine Band
JB and the Moonshine Band are a group of four young East Texans whose love for music brought them together in a somewhat unorthodox way. In early 2009, front man JB Patterson gave up a successful advertising career to pursue his dream of being a songwriter. After realizing how difficult it is for a songwriter to break into the music scene, he realized what he had to do—start a band and sing the songs himself!

JB listed an open casting call for musicians in his community. Turnout for the audition was small; only three people showed up, but three was enough. The group had an impromptu jam session and as JB describes it, “It was obvious. Halfway through the first song, I knew they were the Moonshine Band”. After a successful first show at local honky-tonk, JB and the boys were willing to do whatever it took to get their songs out there. “Our motto was if anybody offered us a gig, we would play it. We were going to play every show we could whether they offered us a thousand dollars or a hundred… or sometimes nothing at all”. With a jerry-rigged PA system and a rented U-Haul van, the boys travelled through East Texas, gaining a local following. The group’s big break came while opening for Average Joe’s Entertainment artist Colt Ford in March of 2010. The band’s country sound and outlaw attitude immediately caught the attention of Colt’s team, and in July of 2010, JB and the Moonshine Band signed a record deal with Average Joes Entertainment.

The band’s debut album, “Ain’t Goin Back to Jail” premiered in September of 2010, with Gabe Guevara on drums, Hayden McMullen on lead guitar, Chris Flores on bass guitar and JB providing lead vocals, banjo, and acoustic guitar. JB also serves as the band’s lyricist, writing all of the songs on the record, which is an accomplishment he’s particularly proud of: “What I like is that we write our own songs—I sing my own songs, and I think that adds an element of authenticity that country music fans appreciate. We’re not super polished, we’re not overproduced, we’re raw, we’re real, and we don’t apologize for it”. JB and the Moonshine Band will continue to tour and promote their debut album in 2011.
