Chris Hersch & The MoonRaiders, Cold Chocolate

Chris Hersch & The MoonRaiders, Cold Chocolate
The MoonRaiders are a Western Swing band that combine elements of Jazz, Rock n' Roll, Country, and Truck Driving music.  

Award winning guitarist Chris Hersch (Girls Guns & Glory, Sarah Borges & The Broken Singles, Say Darling, Gracie Curran & The High Falutin' Band, Monica Rizzio) leads this quartet of accomplished musicians, improvising and singing their way through an eclectic set that will please both the dancer and music aficionado. 

Drawing on a unique repertoire often overlooked in the American Songbook, The MoonRaiders pivot between Bob Wills, Chuck Berry, Dave Dudley, Commander Cody, and Original music, all in one show.  

Their debut album 'Space Lasso' came out in the Fall of 2019 and features six originals and three standards re-arranged by Chris Hersch.

"...the MoonRaiders, is an instrumental twang type of project – an amalgamation of country, jazz, rock, and, well, space. It’s the soundtrack to exploring the galaxy as it exists in the confines of a spaghetti Western – with a side of extra sauce. It’s tasty. It’s worthy of seconds, thirds, and even fourths. So extend the belt, make room, and get ready for a smattering of fun." - Edge Magazine

Cold Chocolate is a genre-bending Americana band that fuses folk, funk, and bluegrass to create a unique sound all their own. Featuring Ethan Robbins on guitar, Ariel Bernstein on percussion, and backed by some of the root's music scene's finest players, this group from Boston is impressing audiences throughout New England and beyond. Punctuated by tight harmonies and skillful musicianship, and with a focus on songwriting, Cold Chocolate has quickly gained recognition for their original music and high-energy shows. The band has shared bills with Leftover Salmon and David Grisman, and regularly performs at venues and music festivals up and down the East Coast.
