"Liquid Lounge - Live Review"

Quality lyrics and songwriting are the norm for Moonshot Radio. Every tune... provides thoughtful, intelligent, arrangements, an all-too-absent feature in much of today's music.

"The Opolis - Live Review"

Complex best describes MR's blend of rock sensibilities... MR was turned up and they were highly melodic... For all the power, MR had a gentle quality that envelopes their comfortable record "Anywhere But Here"... They grew more cerebral but no less exciting.

"Jam In the Sand - Live Review"

... followed by Moonshot Radio, a pop rock band from Dallas, who stole the show. Anyone upset by the breakup of local Dallas band Valve might want to go check these guys out, or just grab a copy of their new CD Anywhere But Here... They were fun to listen to as well as to watch. They really knew how to put on a show.

"The Venue says..."

They're one tight band with great original music and an outstanding stage performance. Great musicians and great people.

"Midpoint Music Festival"

Moonshot Radio is one of the current crop of bands that have found the right way to draw inspiration from the '80s, blending the edgy Folk vibe of R.E.M., the bombastic grandeur of U2 and the sprightly Pop of any number of the era's skinny tie rockers. Moonshot Radio's debut album, Anywhere But Here..., drew airtime on over 100 college stations; their imminent follow-up should do the same. - Cincinnati City Beat


"another live review"

Moonshot Radio wasn't hard at all (in comparison to the previous band), but it didn't matter, because their music was so damn beautiful. - Grady Smith - Editor, fortworthmusic.com

Bio

Moonshot Radio sounds like... Moonshot Radio. However, since descriptions are necessary... it's early 80's rock-n-roll. The gritty, melodic pop of early R.E.M, blended with the upbeat wistfulness of The Housemartins, and a hint of the epic grandeur of U2. Melodic hooks are king, supported by gritty guitars and seamlessly interwoven harmonies.

The debut album, "Anywhere But Here..." gained national college radio attention, with Core stations like WRPI, in Troy, NY, saying "WRPI loves (Moonshot Radio) to the uber max". Over 130 stations have spun the record with over 20 stations charting it in their top 30.

Moonshot Radio recorded their debut CD at Bass Propulsion Laboratories (BPL) under the expert guidance of Todd and Toby Pipes, formerly of Deep Blue Something. With the mixing genius of Stuart Sikes (The Promise Ring, The White Stripes), Moonshot Radio was able to craft a CD full of "thoughtful, intelligent arrangements," as described by Wayne Ansell of POP magazine.

Moonshot Radio is currently recording their sophomore effort, with an expected release in the Spring of 2006.

Brothers Ronnie and David Bates, share songwriting, microphone, and guitar duties. Rounding out the lineup are Mike Arceri on drums, and Matt Morgan on bass. Moonshot Radio has shared the stage with bands like Eisley, Radiant, Pop Unknown, Kissinger, Coma Rally, The Chemistry Set, Calhoun, Pleasant Grove, Goldenboy, El Gato, and many more.
