Central California's country hip-hop rebels the Moonshine Bandits are making noise with their new album "Whiskey and Women", as the album landed at position No. 54 on BILLBOARD's Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists. The Moonshine Bandits' intoxicating musical mixture of hip-hop and country won over fans of different genres as their new album simultaneously hit Billboard's Rap chart at No. 44, Current Country chart at No. 65, and the Independent albums chart at No. 162. Take 1 shot of Johnny Cash influence, 1 shot of the Beastie Boys influence and a dash of dancing girls, and you've got the unconventional new duo, the Moonshine Bandits.

The Bandits have toured Nationally, recorded or performed with established artists such as Uncle Kracker, David Allan Coe, REHAB, TECHN9NE, Kottonmouth Kings, Everlast, Pepper, N2Deep, Twiztid, Boondox, Haystak, Vanilla Ice, Expendables, E-40 and the list goes on. Moonshine Bandits songs "Sweet Home California" , "Moonshine" featuring Danny Boone from the group REHAB (Sittin' at a Bar song), and "Super Goggles" have all received Radio Airplay on FM Top 40 Stations in various regions. The Moonshine Bandits are definitely the working man's champion and continue to earn their stripes in a tough industry. The Bandits endorse their own brand of Liquor beverage called "Moonshine Bandits Outlaw Moonshine" The 99 proof spirit sold in regional grocery/liquor stores and online at www.outlawshine.com. One of the reasons Tex and Bird became known as the Moonshine Bandits is because of Tex's deep family roots of bootlegging booze during the Prohibition years. Tex's great grandfather used a barber shop as a front while he peddled alcohol illegally in baby carriages to community members, family, friends and politicians. This all took place in Northern California during the years of the Great Depression.

The Bandits have earned a ton of industry credits with music placed in Extreme Sports DVDs, 4x4 DVD's, and close to 1,000 live shows performed.
Moonshine Bandits have performed in Biker Clubhouses where most Police Departments wouldn't even step foot in, Smoke Filled Dive Bars, Biker Bars, Clubs, Harley Davidson Events, Cage Fighting Events, 4x4 Mud Conventions, Beer Festivals, Music Venues, and just about every other type of venue you can imagine. The ultimate honor was receiving a phone call from the United States Military to perform at Fort Irwin, CA. The Moonshine Bandits performed on July 4, 2010 at the Fort Irwin Military Base located in the Mojave Desert for thousands of our U.S. Troops. Their Live performances rival many of today's mega super stars. Their show consists of backup singer Derrty D, Award Winning DJ ChopStiqs, Shiner Girl Dancer Kristin aka Firecracker, their drummer B. Diddy and a lifted 4 x 4 Limo. If the Bandits are in your town, be ready for a Hell Raisin' Good ol' Time!

As the Moonshine Bandits gained momentum and their fan base started spreading outside of California to different states, and to Japan, Canada, Sweden, and troops stationed overseas, SHINER NATION WAS BUILT. Shiner Nation was formed to unite all the Moonshine Bandits fans. The Definition of a Shiner is a Rowdy Individual commonly known as a Moonshine Bandit Fan. Living the Shiner Lifestyle isn't just about the music, it's also about partying it up and raising hell your own way. You only live once. The Bandits Musical foundation was built with a blue collar approach from the ground up. Their success is truely a result of hard work and doing things "their" way.

Southbound 45 is a "Gruntry" musical group which was formed with a little bit of that "right place right time"magic. The band began when Santa Fe, TX native, Malissa Peek, auditioned for a rock alternative cover band composed of progressively-rooted lead guitarist Matt Gallegos and drummer Roland Orizaga. Fifteen minutes into the audition, Malissa felt as though she was wasting their time. Malissa's heart was in Country music and she knew the alternative direction would always feel foreign. She asked them to play "Hell On Heels" by Pistol Annies and the guys got their first taste of the spite fire sound. That night the trio decided to take on a new project. The progressive musicians learned to simplify their work while maintaining their passionate rocker style and the band started to find their sound. Although practicing covers was fun, the three felt it was time to dive into Malissa's original songs. The first accomplished songs, "Men Don't Like Hoes" and "Sometimes", defined the band's musical direction. From that moment, the writing process never stopped. The group found a balance and a comfortable home in Malissa's lyrics and voice and the harmonies came natural.The project introduced Fellow Santa Fe native to the group Tim Corrigan and began work as a duo with an image resembling Nashville acts such as Thompson Square and Sugarland. With changes inevitable in a new band Corrigan resigned and the band sought a new rhythm guitarist. On a karaoke night in a small town Nicholas Derden captivated Malissa's ear. He had a guitar in the truck and the rest was history. Derden infused his writing style with Malissa's and the real magic began. Bass player Derek Lann, joined the group in the early stages of the project but would eventually resign and the band again reconstructed finding new talent in ( ). SB45 has maintained the core of the band since day one and continues to build a solid foundation for a lifelong journey that is itching to take off. Southbound 45 gained speed and warns everyone to "hold on tight, this is going to be one hell of a ride!"
