Bio

Although the band is only a year old, the Moonshine Mafia has been brewing in the mind of guitarist Mark Vestich for years. "I've always believed that there are two ways to build a band; one is to focus on the virtuosity of certain members a la Hendrix, and the other is to build a band as a unit, seeking virtuosity through the total sound a la Beatles or Stones. I like the second concept because bands like that tend to play more for their audiences than themselves." A loyal following has quickly developed over the last year, and fans of the band are known as "Mob Members". Influences include the Beatles, the Grateful dead, Credence, Crosby Stills & Nash, Jimmy Buffett, country music before 1980, and Progressive Bluegrass as exemplified by the New Grass Revival. The band plays a variety of cover tunes ranging from John Cowan to Wilson Pickett, but also have a portfolio of originals, their favorites being available on the recently released "Field of Dreams" CD.
