We got stuck in beautiful Banff because record rains took out the Meager Creek bridge in Canmore, and caused mudslides on the remaining five highways out of Banff. After three days stuck, we had to get out. It was 2am right after playing a killer show at Wild Bill’s, we were sweaty and tired but Scraggly Dan needed to get to his brother’s wedding.
The highway reports warned us that the bridge was out. The highway signs warned us the highway was closed. But if anyone ‘a gonna cross it… MOONSHINE ‘a gonna cross it!
The bride and groom were interviewed after their wedding while the handsome groom wore some Moonshine swag… even blogged in Chinese:

you would think this was a typical clothesline in east van, but at the moonshine manor, what else would be hanging… that’s right, moonshine shirts. our project was a success. we ran in to some problems with our Permaset Aqua supercover fabric paint clogging our silkscreen, but with our powers combined, we prevailed. all shirts were hand made by band, and all are quality. we’ve got shirts for men (from Gildan – ultrasoft cotton), and sexy flowy racerback tanks and tees (from Bella) for the ladies. all in olive, dark heather and white. email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested or to get more details.
After 4 years riding the Moonshine Express, Marcel Hildebrand aka. Conductor Mars has decided it was his stop to hop off the train. Thank you for all the fun shows.
Now welcome Toga D’Hoore who joins Moonshine Express as our new bass player. Originally from DC, Toga has funk and soul infused in his blood. He is a beast on the bass guitar. Doesn’t he remind you a little of John Belushi?
