Miss Myra & The Moonshiners

 

Miss Myra and The Moonshiners are a formidable 5-piece swing band bringing a fresh female-driven perspective to traditional New Orleans and hot club jazz, playing a broad repertoire of classic tunes from the ‘20s and ‘30s and inspired originals. With powerful vocals, a smoking horn section, and sweet rhythm, they are guaranteed to lift your spirits and set your feet to tapping.

Miss Myra is a threat on every level.  Her golden voice will bring you from rock bottom to ecstasy and back while her driving guitar rhythm holds the Moonshiners together. Her style of hard hitting swing guitar is reminiscent of Django Reinhardt. She also draws influence from legendary blues guitarists such as Leadbelly and Blind Boy Fuller. If you let her near a piano, you’ll hear virtuosity from ragtime to Lizst.

“It is literally impossible to be sad or still when listening to these guys. More infectious than yellow fever, more personality than Sybil, more fun than bathtub whiskey and more soul than any kids this age should have. I love this band!”    ~Kevin Bowe, Producer, Songwriter (Etta James,”Let’s Roll”)
