interview: Mike and the Moonpies
Tune into the Rock Ride with Tom Crawford as Tom talks to Mike of Texas-based band, Mike and the Moonpies before their August 26th show at Shank Hall in Milwaukee.
Mike and the Moonpies are the modern face of the outlaw country music movement. From their home in Austin, Texas, they carry the torch of their predecessors, while maintaining the originality and independence that the genre is infamous for. The Moonpies, led by Texas born songwriter Mike Harmeier, manage themselves and produce their own albums. While steeped in tradition, the Moonpies rejuvenate honky tonk and traditional country music and appeal to a wildly eclectic audience.
