Mr. Moonshine

Mr. Moonshine is a band based in Long Beach, CA that mixes influences from the wide spectrum of rock to deliver energetic and powerful performances.
The combination of raw vocal power and vulnerable lyrics makes Mr. Moonshine a can't-miss band in the Long Beach local music circuit.
The group formed in September 2012, originally composed of members from the cast of LOLPERA ( after returning from their performances in New York.
Initially set to go with music written by Anthony Pedroza (Vocals, Bass, Guitar), the band quickly gained momentum, playing live consistently since their inception.
The group is lead by the magma-like energy of Anthony, who has been writing and performing music for over 10 years.
The other members in Mr. Moonshine are: Andrew Pedroza, the genius behind LOLPERA on Vocals, Ukelele, Mandolin, Synth, and Trombone. Daysmel Muniz on Guitar, and Ternell Cooksey on Drums. Both of whom had previously played together in Long Beach Psychedelic bands Bed Breakfast Man and Numen.
