Mike and the Moonpies front man, Mike Harmeier was singing in bars by his early teens. Don’t take my word for it though. Just check out their song, “Steak Night at the Prairie Rose” and that should give you a pretty good idea of just who Mike Harmeier is.
Mike and the Moonpies were once known as Austin’s premier dancehall band with several residencies around town before more recently taking their show from coast to coast.
One of the things that sticks out to me about the Moonpies is their use of “twinning” on steel and lead guitar on several of their songs. If you don’t know what twinning is, never fear. We discuss it a little further in depth in the episode.
Their latest record, recorded at world famous, Abbey Road studios in London entitled Cheap Silver and Solid Country Gold is chock full of great songs and if you haven’t downloaded it yet, I highly encourage it.
So here we go with episode #73 of The Troubadour featuring our interview with Mike Harmeier, frontman of Mike and the Moonpies.
