Truckstop Honeymoon: Buy Truckstop Honeymoon CDs online

There ain’t nothing nice about Truckstop Honeymoon. They play banjos and wash tubs. They sing about adultery and oil refineries. It’s break-neck breakdowns or heart-break waltzes. Like a Dodge with a burnt out clutch, their music has two speeds and no reverse.

Katie Euliss learned guitar, piano and bucket bass in the streets of New Orleans. She scammed enough money from tourists to buy Lucky Strikes and smoked oysters for six years.

Then she met Mike West. Part entertainer, part snake oil salesman, Mike lived by pickin’ banjo and selling cds that he claimed were a curative for hangovers and small mindedness.

Together they began a perpetual tour of North America, Europe and Australia. They spent their wedding night in the Tiger Truck Stop, somewhere between Lafayette and the Atchafalya Swamp. Truckstop Honeymoon was born.....

'Truckstop Honeymoon got the chops' - The Stranger, Seattle.. 'The foot-stomping bass lines and rousing choruses melted my cold, cold heart' - Rocket Fuel, Houston TX.. 'It's gritty, grisly and guttural, and makes for damn fine music' - Where Y'At Magazine, New Orleans, LA.. ........ .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .. .......... .............. .. .. ..

mountain sprout: The fearsome foursome MOUNTAIN SPROUT is comprised of Melissa Carper pulling cannon fire notes out of the stand up doghouse bass, Adam Wagner yanking the melody up by it's ear and giving it a musical spanking on the guitar, Blayne Thiebaud burning rosin and bending bow on the fiddle, and Grayson Van Sickle playing machine gun banjo.All four members of the band are dedicated "lifers" and fully intend to continue playing music until the coroner pronounces them dead on stage and has them hauled off for burial, no day jobs for these four. MOUNTAIN SPROUT’S goal as a band is to create better, faster, bigger music and to play it as often as possible, wherever possible and to sustain themselves this way mentally, physically, spiritually, financially, and to keep on doing it.
