Mike and the Moonpies hit the million mile mark in 2017, after a decade of touring coast to coast representing the Austin centric honky tonk scene as a six piece powerhouse of twang and swagger. While not on the road, the band has maintained year long residences in the most iconic venues Austin has to offer including the Broken Spoke, White Horse and Continental Club and still found the time to release four studio albums and one live album from the Winstar World Casino & Resort in Oklahoma. The band has released a vinyl record with George Strait, performed at Austin City Limits music festival and shared the stage with everyone from Dwight Yoakam to Sturgill Simpson. And they’re just getting started.
After their last studio album “Mockigbird” landed on Rolling Stone Country’s best albums of 2015, the boys set out to top themselves with “Steak Night At The Prairie Rose,” a new studio album produced by Adam Odor (Willie Nelson, The Dixie Chicks) and recorded at Yellow Dog Studios in Wimberley Texas. Nine of the 10 brand new songs were all written by band leader Mike Harmeier and recorded live to tape over 5 days. With no extra layers or guest musicians (except for the appearance of legendary harmonica player Mickey Raphael), “Steak Night” represents exactly what you’ll hear the Moonpies doing night after night in the dance halls and theaters across America. “Steak Night” is the result of setting a goal and achieving it. The culmination of a million miles in a van and trailer and a brotherhood only ten years on the road can offer.

5 & Dimers started on a whim when longtime sideman, Jeff Rady, and vocalist, Dustin Devine, discovered they wrote some good country songs, but had no band to play them. After a decade of playing other peoples' songs in a multitude of bands, they felt it was time to try a hand at their own record.


Before long, studio time was booked at the Denver institution Macy Sound Studios where they committed eight songs straight to tape in two days. With little time and a patched together band of some local studio aces, they created a raw and authentic sound that recalled how country records were made in the mid-1960s. 5 and Dimers celebrate that era by mixing a blend of country, old school rock and roll with just a hint of psychedelia.
